Fabiola and her mother are moving to Detroit from Haiti to live with her aunt and cousins. But when her mother is detained without a green card, she must continue the journey alone. She's thrown into the complex challenge of navigating a Detroit high school while wrestling with her own identity as both Haitian and American. Fabiola's voice and her perspective on identity and immigration was moving. Zoboi so generously pours heart into all her characters. I fell in love with Fabiola, her cousins, and the entire community of American Street.
