Book/Novel Title: Who Put This Song On?
Trapped in sunny, stifling, small-town suburbia, seventeen-year-old Morgan knows why shes in therapy. She cant count the number of times shes been the only non-white person at the sleepover, been teased for her weird outfits, and been told shes not really black. Also, shes spent most of her summer crying in bed. So theres that, too. Lately, it feels like the whole world is listening to the same terrible track on repeatand its telling them how to feel, who to vote for, what to believe. Morgan wonders, when can she turn this song off and begin living for herself? Life may be a never-ending hamster wheel of agony, but Morgan finds her crew of fellow outcasts, blasts music like theres no tomorrow, discovers what being black means to her, and finally puts her mental health first. She decides that, no matter what, she will always be intense, ridiculous, passionate, and sometimes hilarious. After all, darkness doesnt have to be a bad thing. Darkness is just real.
