I've read this book 4 times, and each time, I noticed different things. This book spoke to me each time. Pipeline is about a mother, Nya, raising her son Omari in the inner city. Omari is wondering why he isn't good enough for his father to spend time with him. Nya, a teacher does her best to give him better opportunities to include private education, although she teaches in a public school. Dominique highlights the issues mothers face while raising their children alone, also focusing on the absent parent and their miniscule contributions. Nya is trying her best not to let Omari fall into the school-to-prison pipeline that is prevalent in the Black community. Omari voice speaks volumes, too.... hearing your child's voice on the decisions we make in their best interest isn't valued enough. Although it's their lives, they should have some say so too. I'm sure I'll probably read this book a couple more times.#GreatRead #Book1of2024 #Bookworm #Whatsnext
