After Tupac and D Foster is a fictional young adult novel about the growth of the narrator and her two friends D and Neeka. The novel also discusses the rapper Tupac by comparing him with D. The book is a short read but brought up some interesting points about homosexuality, racism, and foster care. I also enjoyed the language of the book because it effectively represented the dialect of Queens New York. I did think that some parts of the book were slightly exaggerated, such as D's unwillingness to tell her friends hardly anything about herself until the end of the novel and how Tash spoke. I think the main issues of the book were interesting, though, and I think middle school students would enjoy this book.
