Review: The Go-Between by Veronica Chambers

The Go-Between by Veronica Chambers

Release Date: May 9, 2017
Publisher: Delacorte

This hilarious, honest, and realistic coming-of-age novel set in mega wealthy Mexico City as well as Hollywood, skewers perceived racial stereotypes as well as highlights how the immigrant experience unites those who share the American dream. Through her Afro-Latina heritage, Veronica Chambers brings her own experiences, in fictional form, to these issues while dealing with them in an authentic voice.
With humor and humanity, Veronica Chambers offers a universally appealing coming-of-age novel that poses complex questions of identity and assimilation every immigrant must wrestle with: Who were we back there? Who are we here? Who does everyone think we are here? And how do we meld all those selves together into a new life?
