    A fiercely poetic coming-of-age novel following a group of young women of colour in Queens, New York. Brown Girls dives deep into the lives of a group of young women of colour growing up in Queens, New York. Here, streets echo with many languages, subways rumble above dollar stores and the briny scent of the ocean wafts in from Rockaway Beach. Here, girls like Nadira, Gabby, Naz, Trish, Angelique, and many others, struggle to reconcile their immigrant backgrounds with the American culture they come of age in. Here, they become friends for life. Or so they vow.

    Brown Girls is a blazingly original, sweeping debut novel told by an unforgettable chorus of voices.
