Will Do Magic for Small Change

Will Do Magic for Small Change Review É 2 Andrea Hairston ☆ 2 Read Characters Ð PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Andrea Hairston Cinnamon Jones dreams of stepping on stage and acting her heart out like her famous grandparents Redwood and Wildfire But at 5'10 and 180 pounds she's theatrically challenged Her family life is a tangle of mystery and deadly secrets and nobody is. Will Do Magic for Small Change feels like Octavia Butler crossed with Charles de Lint It mixes genres with aliens and magic and explores themes such as race gender sexuality and family history It s one of the most original SFF novels I ve read in yearsWill Do Magic for Small Change opens with Cinnamon Jones a black girl in 1980 s Philadelphia attending her half brother s funeral Her brother left her a book written by an alien wanderer from another dimension who appeared in West Africa during the 1890 s The wanderer s story is not complete and sections continue to appear as the course of Cinnamon s teen years Eventually Cinnamon realizes that the wanderer s story has some mysterious connections to her own family historyMy expectation was that I would enjoy the alien s story than Cinnamon s but the reverse was true Cinnamon aspires to be an actress but the theater is a difficult place for a large dark skinned black girl It does provide the opportunity of friendship with two other teenagers and the three of them become caught up in the mysteries of the ChronicleThat said I never skipped over the other sections relating to the wanderer Taiwo who gets caught up in the life of a warrior woman of Dahomey Kehinde who is searching for her dead brother s wife and an escape from her own past New sections of Taiwo and Kehinde s story appear as the wanderer remembers them but they ve fragmented and lost many portions of their own historyGender and sexual fluidity are at the heart of Will Do Magic for Small Change Cinnamon is bisexual although the word is never used and becomes involved in a fledgling polyamorous romance The wanderer Taiwo is not male or female but either both or neither They like Cinnamon are bisexual and various characters they encounter are also ueerIn a large part Will Do Magic for Small Change is a story of identity and history with Taiwo trying to form their own identity and recall their personal history Meanwhile Cinnamon is searching into her own family history trying to uncover the truth of the event that led to her father s coma and still in the process of self discovery There s a sense of searching for a connection between an African American present and an African pastFor me the characters are what I found most compelling about Will Do Magic for Small Change I became strongly invested in Cinnamon s story and I loved Kehinde a fierce warrior woman who continues to move forward despite the tragedies in her past Even characters such as Opal Cinnamon s mother who could have been little than a two dimensional obstacle for Cinnamon to overcome ultimately proved to be than thatview spoiler If I have one complaint it lies with the ending The book ends suddenly and abruptly without any real conclusion or closure I m guessing that there s some thematic or literary purpose but I read for entertainment and this didn t work for me I m willing to go with such experimentation in form but I m not willing to invest the time in a 400 page book only for an ending reminiscent of The Lady or the Tiger hide spoiler

I really wanted to love Will Do Magic For Small Change by Andrea Hairston It started so well but my level of engagement with this fantasy novel wasn t sustained at a consistent level I read it for a Goodreads folkloremythology group that had chosen it as a book of the month I consider myself a student of folklore mythology and all spiritual paths This book contains West African folklore and religious practicesI did love scenes and seuences in this book that I found moving and poignant There were times when the characters and relationships felt real and true and there were times when they felt distant and superficial One of the perennial problems with the writing was telling readers about events through dialogue instead of showing us these events as they happened so that readers can experience them There was a point when the narrative seemed so tedious that I nearly abandoned the book but then I encountered a character that I thought had great potential and I fell in love with Will Do Magic For Small Change all over again Although there were portions of Will Do Magic For Small Change that I was glad I read I was ultimately disappointed by it since I hoped that it would be better writtenFor my complete review see
