Reviews
"A charming and beautiful ode to found family, nerdy Black girls, and urban communities everywhere surviving and thriving despite it all."----Ashley Woodfolk, New York Times best-selling co-author of Blackout and Whiteout
"A transcending story of what it looks like to be uprooted and how far you'll go to stay intact. Beautifully done and laced with the constant reminder of how friends aren't only family, they're also home."----Britney S. Lewis, author of The Undead Truth of Us
There Goes the Neighborhood is part coming-of-age, part thrilling mystery, with a razor-sharp wit that cuts deep. This book radiates joy while not shying away from necessary truths."----Elise Bryant, author or Happily Ever Afters and One True Loves
"There Goes the Neighborhood is the epitome of 'for the culture.' Adia's debut is hilarious, heartfelt, and sometimes as bitter as it is sweet. With a trio of friends who will do anything to stay together and protect their community, you'll discover a new found family to root for and a craving for all your favorite street food. A true love letter to the Block and its people."----Lane Clarke, author of Love Times Infinity
"Equally strong in its magnetic messiness and potent candor, the novel plunges into discussions of youth activism, capitalism-fueled displacement, and racism's myriad forms with fierce vision and conviction. A robust cast of characters diverse across various dimensions gives voice to contemporary perspectives on community-oriented social justice and performative wokeness . . . this one's a much-needed read. Plain terrific."----Kirkus Reviews
"Outstanding. This book packs such a fierce, fantastic punch in the best possible way. I devoured it and still wanted more. Alive with love and fully awake to the joy, hilarity, rage, and heartache of this broken world, There Goes the Neighborhood fires on all cylinders and takes no prisoners."----Daniel José Older, New York Times best-selling author of Shadowshaper
"In this riveting portrait of community care, debut author Adia paints the pain, danger, and consequences of gentrification with visceral clarity, highlighting changes such as displacement and fractured families via Rhea's biting and witty voice and her unwavering loyalty to her hometown."----Publishers Weekly
