Amy Alice (amyalicejakob) | 37 comments I have now read The Parable of the Sower. I gave it 2/5, it really took some hard graft to get through this for me!

Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Challenge prompt: Afrofuturism

I also thought it would be good for the environment prompt but I just don't feel like I can count it for that now that I've read it! So back to the drawing board but I'm excited for the replacement book I've found!
