Zuri Benitez has pride. Brooklyn pride, family pride, and pride in her Afro-Latino roots. But pride might not be enough to save her rapidly gentrifying neighborhood from becoming unrecognizable.

When the wealthy Darcy family moves in across the street, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two teenage sons, even as her older sister, Janae, starts to fall for the charming Ainsley. She especially can’t stand the judgmental and arrogant Darius. Yet as Zuri and Darius are forced to find common ground, their initial dislike shifts into an unexpected understanding.

But with four wild sisters pulling her in different directions, cute boy Warren vying for her attention, and college applications hovering on the horizon, Zuri fights to find her place in Bushwick’s changing landscape, or lose it all.

3 Reasons You Should Read…

Pride by Ibi Zoboi

  • We love retellings, and we love Pride & Prejudice. So give us a P&P retelling? We can’t wait to read one of our favorite stories wrapped up in a modernized and diverse new package set in Brooklyn!
  • American Street was one of the most profound books of 2017 for us. We literally could not wait to read what Ibi Zoboi was going to follow up with.
  • This kind of goes along with reason one, but any book that gives us more Mr. Darcy–in any form–and we’re so there.

About Ibi Zoboi

Ibi Zoboi author

Ibi Zoboi was born in Haiti and immigrated to New York with her mother when she was four years-old. Everything about her new home was both strange and magical. This is why she loves reading and writing science-fiction, fantasy, and mythology. And she loves love stories, too! Ibi wears lots of bright colors and is a huge fan of mangos, avocados, dry humor, long-winded storytellers, and modest skirts. She also smiles, laughs, and cries often—sometimes all at once. She lives in Brooklyn with her three children, her husband the art teacher, and three pet turtles named Lucky, Jade, and Leo. It’s a messy house.
