I want black teens to know exactly what you're getting into with Before She Ignites I'm concerned that a black girl will see this gorgeous cover in a library or bookstore and pick it up thinking it will empower and entertain her This is 300 something pages of a black girl being abused physically and emotionally by almost everyone in her life Does that sound like a fun YA fantasy story to you It's not to meThe plot BSI is about Mira Minkoba a political figurehead named after an influential treaty that united the island nations her people come from She is VERY important because she represents the treaty Mira doesn't want to do politics though she just wants to hang out with dragons and her friends When Mira and her friends her bodyguard a dragon trainer assigned to her stumble upon a plot to sell dragons to their enemies on the mainland she feels obligated to stop it The dragons were put on the islands by the gods and the island people are supposed to take care of them and whatnot Selling them is illegal thanks to the treaty Mira goes to the adults unaware they're part of the scheme and gets thrown in prison where she must come up with a plan to escape and save the dragons Because saving the dragons will in turn save the islands from the wrath of the godsNow I admit this is a cool concept Unfortunately the author doesn’t fully explore any of the above We stay with Mira as she moves from one traumatic experience to the next While Mira is played up as special and perfect and The Chosen One she doesn't get treated that wayOur heroine is diminished by almost everyone she interacts with Everyone is using her or hurting her in some way There isn't a single black woman character in the entire book that's kind to Mira of their own free will Her mother is overly critical and thinks she's stupid her sister is jealous of her her mentors betray her view spoilerOne of them literally cuts her face open with a knife hide spoiler

On Sale 199 on August 14 201845 stars DragonsThis book impressed me Let me first say that it isn't often you see a main character portrayed with crippling panicanxiety disorder that manifests in OCD like counting As someone who suffers from anxiety it was refreshing to read about a character who has it as well Kudos to the authorMira is a girl who has been raised in privilege She is a pretty face not very smart doesn't think much is uncomplicated does what she is told She is the face behind the politics of her island She gives the flowery speeches never writes them and is a figurehead She loves dragons She and her best friend train dragons and along with her male protector born on another island are together as much as possible Until they discover someone is taking the dragons When Mira presents the evidence to the political leaders they send her to a place called “the pit” the worst jail you could be sent toMost of the book is spent here where Mira meets a rag tag band of misfits she inevitably befriends Mira has a lot of growth She goes from a passive girl who does what she is told to someone who makes her own choices and fights for what she thinks is right She ends up with abilities but she definitely has to earn it and goes through the wringer to get thereThis isn’t a perfect book but it gets extra props from me for the reasons listed above I ended up liking Mira a lot and think the author did a good job with world building and the supporting characters came alive for me as wellI highly recommend this and can’t wait to see what happens next
