Summary

Summary

Ella has a Thing. She sees a classmate grow up to become a caring nurse. A neighbor’s son murdered in a drive-by shooting. Things that haven’t happened yet. Kev, born while Los Angeles burned around them, wants to protect his sister from a power that could destroy her. But when Kev is incarcerated, Ella must decide what it means to watch her brother suffer while holding the ability to wreck cities in her hands.

Rooted in the hope that can live in anger, Riot Baby is as much an intimate family story as a global dystopian narrative. It burns fearlessly toward revolution and has quietly devastating things to say about love, fury, and the black American experience.

Ella and Kev are both shockingly human and immeasurably powerful. Their childhoods are defined and destroyed by racism. Their futures might alter the world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There is a richness and depth to Onyebuchi’s prose that delivers an intricate and textured world at once rife with violence and teeming with familial love.” Booklist
“Urgent, brutal…Onyebuchi’s unexpectedly hopeful ending is just as powerful as his unflinching, heartbreaking depictions of racism and cruelty. This staggering story is political speculative fiction at its finest.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Riot Baby bursts at the seams of story with fire, passion, and power.” Marlon James, Man Booker Prize–winning author
“Onyebuchi’s adult debut is a stunningly, vitally harrowing story and genre at its very best.” Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author
“Onyebuchi has woven a story as uplifting as it is heartbreaking, an epic ode to the future and past.” Daniel José Older, New York Times bestselling author
