Resource Description

What happened to Korey Fields? A seventeen-year-old aspiring singer, Enchanted Jones, had been drawn into a romantic relationship with the famous twenty-eight-year-old celebrity. Soon, her dreams turn into a nightmare as she navigates an abusive relationship that ultimately ends in murder. Culturally relevant, current, and engaging, “Grown” tackles important societal and social justice issues that a teen audience can connect with. Appropriate for senior secondary-level students, the book could be suitable as a full-class novel study or in literature circles. It broaches themes such as systemic racism, victim-blaming, classism, and social media dangers, topics that could be researched further in senior secondary courses. Log in to read the full review.
