The Downstairs Girl
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I LOVE historical fiction. It might be my favorite genre. Shhh, don’t tell the others! My Reese’s Book Club Late Summer YA pick is no exception. The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee is clever, poignant and funny. It’s a bold portrait of a young Chinese-American woman named Jo who is faced with adversity and the realities of intersectionality in her community. As an anonymous writer in a local newspaper, this young woman is able to use her voice for greater good. Such a charming yet timely and important story.
