Stories With Mr AhamadSeason 2 Episode 2 Copperheadhttpsyoutube Ascn1spYTo be honest I m surprised that I even finished this book As a young Black man reading from the perspective of a reluctant white supremacist was hard to commit to for than a couple of pages Thankfully once I got in about 100 pages deep the story really picked up and there were some incredible character arcs to read through Without giving too much away I LOVE that this is a book about race featuring a white protagonist that isn t a white savior Having the main character struggle with his whiteness and family history without trying to save someone of color really made this book feel I don t know raw and earnest Things got ugly than once in this book and Alexi Zentner wasn t shy about what he wanted and needed to say It s weird a lot of this book made me angry and incredibly uncomfortable but I was appreciative of the fact that it was presented in such a forward wayI have SOOOOOO MUCH to say but I rather save it for a future episode of BookTubePS So that you re not waiting I took points off for the slow and explicit football opening along with a major set piece that shifted the story from super real and believable to fictitious for me People may disagree with me and that s okay because this is still an important and meaningful piece of work I just wasn t 100% in love with it during my entire readAnyway stay tuned UPDATE I was holding onto this until I officially dropped Season 2 of my BookTube series but since I ve been getting some traffic here lately I thought now would be a good timeEnjoy

This was a sparely written thought provoking and ultimately hopeful book that kept me guessing about how it would end As it takes place in Ithaca renamed Cortaca it was a bit like looking at my hometown in a funhouse mirror I wouldn t have made all of the same narrative choices but I found this to be a satisfying read
