My Reflection Matters, a popular parenting blog, featured Jupiter Storm this week and I'm still blushing from the review.
“Dumas doesn’t shy away with letting readers know that Black girls are, in fact, beautiful and don’t need any help enhancing their beauty or anyone to convince them they are gorgeous beings. But, through Jackie, she also reminds us that girls are not monolithic—that having multiple interests and abilities that intersect stereotypical gender norms is, well, normal. Like Jackie, they can be super smart leaders who love math while still enjoying playing with paper dolls. These are the types of messages I want my young boys to internalize. These are the lessons I hope all children and adults walk away with when they read Jupiter Storm.”
