Product Details


“A page-turning exploration of the darker, coming-of-age realities of childhood—but told gently, honestly, and with a generous amount of hope.”—Jamie Ford
“Lloyd has created a raw, rich character, who won me over completely. Her search for peace and belonging is utterly riveting.”
—Amanda Eyre Ward
“Venus is the star of this story, but I also fell in love with all the other characters, many of whom do all the wrong things for all the right reasons. Book groups will want to dive into the novel’s complex, moral dilemmas.”—Anna Whiston Donaldson
“A timely, must-read novel that you won’t be able to put down! With the compassion of a ragtag community that ultimately embraces them, the characters work to discover the redemptive power of love in their lives. My Name Is Venus Black will make us rethink what we think we know about family, community, and our responsibilities to each other.”—Jonis Agee
“Moving . . . [Lloyd] adroitly brings the resilient Venus to life. . . . A satisfying tale about family, forgiveness, and moving on.”Publishers Weekly
“It’s impossible not to root for this strong, willful girl as she finds her place in the world and for her brother as he tries to make sense of it. A badass bildungsroman.”Kirkus Reviews
