Genesis Begins Again

Initially published in 2019 on the 15th of January, this would come out through the ‘S&S/Atheneum’ publishing outlet. This would also be the debut title in the career of Alicia D.

Not being a part of any series, it tells the story of young girl finding her place in the world, in what is essentially a self-contained coming-of-age Young Adult novel.

This is definitely very much a story that’s straight from Alicia D. Williams heart, as it’s clear that she’s put a lot of her own personal experience into it. From the characters to the premise itself, it really carries itself along well, bristling with a lively energy and sense of vibrancy that brings it to life off of the page. The main protagonist is someone that Williams also feels a definite fondness for, letting her speak for herself in her own words. With a clear ear for how young people really speak in a genuine authentic way, it manages to produce an effect that is clearly quite powerful, resonating loudly.

At the young age of just thirteen, Genesis must overcome the internalized racism ingrained into her as a POC looking for confidence in her own identity. With extra dark skin Genesis is given many names because of it, and many from her own family, who are also constantly being evicted due to the father’s gambling addiction. This time though, Genesis and her mother have to go and live with her grandmother, who is always arguing with her daughter over needing to leave her husband and go back to school. Now Genesis has been told her voice is something quite special by her choir teacher, but she doesn’t have the confidence to join the talent show when her father keeps putting her down, and she also feels shy over her skin color. Will she be able to overcome her lack of confidence? Can she make it to sing in the talent show? What happens when Genesis begins again?
