Calling My Name tells the coming-of-age story of an African American girl named Taja Brown growing up in a devout family in Houston, Texas. In fifty-three iridescent short chapters, Taja narrates her teenage years—from middle school to high school graduation—as she struggles to figure out life, love, and her own brand of spirituality. Taja’s deeply felt voice, coupled with Liara Tamani’s elegant and literary style, delivers a generous and thematically rich emotional wallop.
