The superhero we need in 2021 ♥️ ( )
  Chinesa72 | Jul 28, 2021 |
(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Content warning for racist and homophobic violence, sexual assault, police brutality, gun violence, and a school shooting.)

Ever since she uprooted a tree at the age of three to rescue a neighbor's cat, Nubia and her moms have known that she's different. Rather than celebrating her superpowers, her adoptive mothers, Amera and Danielle, decided to hide them instead: because, to a country rooted in white supremacy, a Black girl with superhuman strength and speed is more likely to be treated like a villain than a hero, no matter which side she's fighting for.


Despite Nubia's best intentions, staying under the radar is harder than ever in the world of smartphones, Twitter, and TikTok - hence the family's many abrupt moves. Now a high school junior, Nubia's carved out a space for herself, with best friends Quisha and Jason, and a cute crush named Oscar. Nubia barely avoids discovery - and arrest - when she foils a robbery at a local convenience store. But when privileged rich boy positively oozing toxic masculinity assaults Quisha at a party, the fallout is captured on camera for the world to see.


With racial tensions already simmering in the neighborhood after the police murder of an unarmed Black boy, school dirt bag Wayland weaponizes his whiteness further, threatening Quisha, the movement she helped to build, and the kids' high school and community. Now armed with the knowledge of where she came from, it's up to Nubia to decide who she wants to be: a regular high school kid, or an honest-to-goodness superhero.


I came to NUBIA: REAL ONE with very little knowledge of the character or her history (though I've done some internet research since). I love the origin story McKinney decided to run with, and the scenes where Nubia learns of her super-human ancestry are lovely, filled with both humor and heart.


Nubia is an endearing character, grappling with the usual teenage awkwardness and angst, both of which are only compounded by her burdensome secret. Nubia's family is adorable (if a little strict, though for obvious reasons), and the reveal at the end is just *chef's kiss*. Quisha, Jason, Oscar - all are multifaceted, memorable supporting characters who, though they may not possess x-ray vision or the ability to control the weather, bring their own special strengths to the table.

As the content warning notes, McKinney tackles a number of difficult subjects in this thin, 207-page volume: racism, homophobia, sexual assault, police brutality, state-sanctioned murder, unwarranted crackdowns on BLM protesters, gun culture, school shootings, domestic violence, bullying ... It seems like a lot when I type it out like that, yet it feels realistic and organic to the story. (It's depressingly easy to picture Wayland going on a rampage because, for once in his spoiled life, dudebro didn't get his way.)

Sadly, this is the world so many young people - especially those claiming one or more marginalized identities - live in. Systemic racism, school shootings (or just the daily reminders that a mass shooting could happen, i.e., drills and metal detectors), hate crimes, bullying ... all can be found in every town and city across America. The question is the same one Nubia struggles with - what are you willing to do about it? ( )

A really enjoyable story for teens follows a relatable girl struggling with some everyday problems and extraordinary powers. I admire this new take on Nubia a lot and found her family and friends to be very likable. The story was engaging and filled with topical and complex issues, though the ending did feel a little pat, putting all the evils of the world -- bullying, sexism, classism, homophobia, toxic masculinity, racism, gun violence, and mansplaining -- into one very punchable teen boy (not that there aren't a shortage of those).

I'm hoping there is a follow-up to this in my future. ( )
