A Chorus Rises
Author: Bethany C. Morrow
Teen influencer Naema Bradshaw has it all: she’s famous, stylish, gorgeous?and she’s an Eloko, a charismatic person gifted with a melody that people adore. Everyone loves her? until she's cast as the villain who exposed a Siren to the whole world.
Dragged by the media, and canceled by her fans, no one understands her side: not her boyfriend, not her friends, not even her fellow Eloko. Villified by those closest to her, Naema heads to the Southwest where she is determined to stage a comeback... to her family, her real self, and the truth about her magic. What she finds is a new community in a flourishing group of online fans who support her.
At first, it feels like it used to - the fandom, the adoration, the community that takes her side - but when her online advocates start targeting other Black girls, Naema will realize that - for Black girls like her - even the privilege of fame has its limits. And only Naema can discover the true purpose of her power, and how to use it.
