Recensioner i media

"Jacksons expert reshaping of this tale highlights the genuine horrors of both internalized and externalized anti-Blackness. Horror done right." Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Jackson skillfully explores internalized and externalized anti-Blackness in this striking horror novel. Bone-chilling. Expertly utiliz[es] current true-crime fanaticism to form a powerfully socially conscious narrative that showcases the intense structural racism still inherent in society." Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Jacksons nod to Stephen Kings Carrie incorporates racially charged social justice themes into a narrative featuring her signature twisty suspense. Supernatural portions of the book are explosive and riveting, with the racist realistic parts are even more horrifying. Readers will be hooked from page one of Maddys intense journey that detonates on prom night." School Library Journal (starred review) "A brilliant deconstruction of Stephen King's Carrie." BookPage (starred review) "This reimagining of Kings Carrie is a thrilling, unflinching horror narrative that takes on colorism, racism, classism, microaggressions, white saviorism, and respectability politics." The Horn Book "Smart and unsettling retelling of Carrie." Booklist PRAISE FOR WHITE SMOKE: "Jackson conjures horrors both supernatural and otherwise in a masterful juxtaposition of searing social commentary and genuinely creepy haunts, as well as providing an authentic portrayal of tensions within a blended family. Begs to be finished in one sitting, though maybe with the lights kept on." Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Jackson delivers multilayered frights in a true horror tradition, peppered with instantly recognizable references to urban legends and internet horror culture." Publishers Weekly "The nuanced depiction of Maris struggle with mental health is emotionally resonant; the story of a mostly Black city nearly wiped out by draconian drug laws and gentrification is authentic and timely; and the simmering tension and jump scares make the horror element satisfyingly chilling... Jackson ticks off the best tropes of horror here with enthusiastic glee, and Ms. Suga will have more than a few readers checking their basements before bedtime." Bulletin of the Center for Childrens Books PRAISE FOR GROWN: "Gripping in both its content and format . . . Jackson's writing some of the best thrillers for teens these days." Booklist (starred review) "Expertly juxtaposing the glamour of Enchanteds potential fame against the harshness of her private moments with Korey, Jackson builds the story gradually and painfully to an astonishing, chilling climax." Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Compelling; Jackson excels in writing books steeped in social commentary." Kirkus Reviews "In another ripped-from-the-headlines novel, Jackson takes readers through a heart-pounding thriller exploring physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, misogynoir, and rape culture... this novel is sure to initiate important conversations while delivering an engrossing story." Horn Book Magazine PRAISE FOR LET ME HEAR A RHYME: Exceptional storytelling, well-crafted, true-to-life dialogue, and the richly drawn Brooklyn landscape will draw readers into this fast-paced blend of mystery, budding romance, and social commentary . . . Thoroughly engrossing and as infectious as Stephs lyrics. Kirkus Reviews (starred review) This YA novel harmonizes music and prose to create a certified literary banger. Shelf Awareness Readers will feel connected to these teens love of hip-hop, their loyalty to each other and their love for their community . . . offers moving portraits of young people . . . an engaging ode to 90s hip-hop and to love in many forms.
