The Black Flamingo

by Dean Atta - £7.99  Hodder Children's Books (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781444948608 | ISBN 10: 1444948601

‘I masquerade in makeup and feathers and I am applauded.’
 
Fiercely told, this is a powerful coming-of-age story told in verse, from one of the UK’s leading poets, Dean Atta. Perfect for fans of Sarah Crossan and Poet X.
 
A boy comes to terms with his identity as a mixed-race gay teen – then at university he finds his wings as a drag artist, The Black Flamingo.
 
A bold story about the power of embracing your uniqueness. Sometimes, we need to take charge, to stand up wearing pink feathers – to show ourselves to the world in bold colour.
