SUMMARY µ SABLEYES.CO.UK ↠ Robin Talley

Onfront harsh truths about race power and how they really feel about one anotherBoldly realistic and emotionally compelling Lies We Tell Ourselves is a brave and stunning novel about finding truth amid the lies and finding your voice even when others are determined to silence this book is problematic as hell and for some reason 2014 me loved itWhat do I even say This is one of the most compelling stories I ve read in my entire life I could not put this down I mean look at the read dates I read it in three hours It was ridiculous The biggest plus to this book besides character work as we ll discuss in a minute was the writing Talley uses a device where she lists lies these two leads are telling themselves every few chapters and it works perfectly I m almost willing to recommend this just for the stellar writing Historical fiction for me is generally an exercise in character work If the characters aren t there it s not going to work for me Thank goodness this book delivers Robin Talley crafts her two main characters with a lot of love and believability Sarah to me was the most real of the two leads I feel like I know her She wants to fight against racism but she s also scared of what she needs to do Linda starts the book completely racist but her character arc feels super believable And I m actually going to give this it s own paragraph I liked the focus on her good intentions not particularly mattering because she was still hurting people I also appreciate that Lies We Tell Ourselves is one of the only books I ve ever read that didn t shy away from talking about internalized prejudice The acknowledgement that Linda s initial Sarah is the best black person attitude is still incredibly racist was so worthwhile and necessary I think Talley does a really great job of being conscious of bias and prejudice in this story and subverting concerning tropes It bears mentioning though that I did see a few issues I ve seen it pointed out that the entire concept of a black woman and a formerly racist white woman falling in love shouldn t be written by a white author which is a fair point I think that if this were published in 2017 rather than 2014 the reception would be uite different We ve talked and learned a lot about this trope now and I don t think it s a trope I m interested in All that being said I think this was our standard for revolutionary back in 2014 Simply the fact that this book actively challenges racism and homophobia at the same time was enough then because we had nothing It s not enough any I ll leave you with that if that s going to make you uncomfortable skip this one VERDICT Um The trope is something we should definitely discuss and talk about But I m going to be honest guys I read this book in three hours flat and I cried through the last 100 pages And I don t think that s something I can ignore to be honest Personally I would recommend this but I would also definitely recommend some reading on the tropes involved and

Lies We Tell Ourselves

In 1959 Virginia the lives of two girls on opposite sides of the battle for civil rights will be changed foreverSarah Dunbar is one of the first black students to attend the previously all white Jefferson High School An honors student at her old school she is put into remedial Other people will always try to decide things for you she says They ll try to tell you who you are Remember no matter what they say you re the one who really decides Don t ever forget this picture It is photojournalistic proof that people of colour have suffered to have their rights recognized and that if today they are allowed to learn next to white people worldwide it is because they have endured and struggled and fought Look at those policemen doing nothing Look at the hate in the white woman s face Look at the admirable black woman in the front who is keeping it together Strength is beautiful As is this book You should know that Historical Fiction is one of my least favourite genres and I avoid it as much as possibleSo the way I see it the fact that I read this in less than a day and thoroughly enjoyed it speaks volumes I read it extremely fast because I was captivated I learned about integration and desegregation in some of my previous History and Humanities classes and I honestly thought I knew enough about it to introduce the topic to someone elseI knew close to nothingIt is clear that the author did much research before writing this novel from the amount of authentic information that she managed to include For example I didn t think that any of the coloured students that integrated the white schools would be forced to drop out by the white students who terrorized them and I definitely didn t know that this could set the movement back Most of the time though I felt anger than surprise like when adults did nothing when they witnessed a black kid being treated unfairly and even attacked so hard to the point of losing conscience How can a human being watch something like that and not actEven if there is a love story of a sort one that is uite sweet all things considered it is never heavy on the romance per se The focuses of the story are really the integration part and the ways in which people both white and coloured react to it Mostly negatively but there is unexpected kindness too Linda s characterization isn t as well done as Sarah s seeing that some of her reactions to the hate she sees around her appear forced but that doesn t mean that she isn t a wonderful character to read about and one we absolutely needed in such a story Sarah is perfectly developed and impossible to dislike What a compelling first novel I m happy this educational historical fiction was written because we mustn t forget the pastBuddy read with dear Kat Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram
