Product Details


Praise for Who Put This Song On?:

Lovely, honest, wrenching and funny—a tribute to music, survival and the power of finding beautiful moments of ‘temporary escape.'” —New York Times Book Review

Poignant yet humorous.” —

“Funny and frank, Morgan Parker’s Who Put This Song On? is a must-read in contemporary YA.” —Bustle

“A funny, clever, wild ride
 of a story about growing up and breaking free.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★”This fresh read provides a positive and inclusive take on mental health and wellness and offers readers some tools to survive on their own.”Booklist, Starred Review

“Drawing on her own teen experiences, Parker (There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé for adults) adroitly touches upon matters of respectability and ‘presentableness,’ stigmas against discussing mental health issues in the black community and among young adults, and internalized and societal racism.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Parker has rendered a brilliant debut of black girlhood and mental health, at turns unflinchingly irreverent, laugh-out-loud funny, and heartbreakingly honest.” —Elizabeth Acevedo, National Book Award winner and New York Times bestselling author of The Poet X
“It’s rare to find a book that aptly balances the comedy and tragedy of being human. Morgan Parker put THIS song on—and I hope it never turns off.” —Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin and Odd One Out
“As a weird, depressed, Radiohead-obsessed black post-teen myself, it’s clear Morgan ripped my heart out and splattered it across the pages of this book. It’s perfect.” —Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life.

Praise for Magical Negro:
“2019 justly belongs to Morgan Parker . . . [she] is one of this generation’s best minds.” —Danez Smith, T Magazine

“Nothing short of triumphant.” —NYLON

“A desperately urgent work of poetry.” —Booklist
