First Chapter Thoughts: Tristan Strong Punches A Hole In The Sky

I was recommended this book by the lovely LA Knight, and was thrilled to find that it’s part of the Riordan Presents series, where authors write #OwnVoices takes on their own myths. So far, I’m not sure which myths exactly Tristan Strong is taking on, but I’m anticipating Anansi at least from the spiderweb charm!

The thing I’m enjoying the most so far about this book is Tristan’s voice and his stubborn refusal to give in to toxic masculinity. He’s grieving his friend, and he isn’t embarrassed about his counselor – he’s just confused and lost, and dealing with the weight of family expectations along with his grief. It’s a lot for any kid!

I’m excited to see where this goes, and I’ve so far been tremendously impressed with this line of books.
