Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now Reviews
This is an incredibly complex novel, and one that fits a lot into it's short timeframe, which was fully impressive. I loved Tiffany Sly and I love all the pieces of her that Dana L. Daviw uses for her story.
Above all this was a story about family (Grace, if you're reading this: there's no romance!). To Tiffanny, family has meant one thing: her mother and grandmother. Now, her mother is dead and her grandmother is in Chicago, and Tiffany has a new family and more questions than she's ever had be ...more
I received a copy of Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
For this being Dana Davis's debut novel, I was thoroughly impressed by the prose. The fluidity of her words makes an already fast-paced book read even faster. Through her robust writing, Davis gives each and every character a full life and detailed background. Tiffany Sly has easily become one of my new favorite female characters. She is strong, passionate, and extremely likable. Tiffany is deali ...more

Note: Special thanks to Harper Collins for providing a copy for review.
There is so much more to this book than what the summary describes. There's a certain level of complexity here surrounding the characters' relationships, the plot, and dialogue that is rare in YA contemporaries.
This book incorporates OCD, anxiety issues, PTSD, autism, and psychosomatic induced alopecia into the storyline. At first, it feels like the author was trying a littl ...more
This book was amazing. I loved Tiffany and Marcus, loved reading about their truths. Highly recommend this one for anyone who feels out of place. <3
I’m having a hard time sorting out my thoughts about this book. I absolutely adore the main character, Tiffany Sly. She’s bold, she speaks her mind, she doesn’t let herself be bullied into following orders blindly, and she suffers from anxiety and OCD. Like Tiffany, the author is black and has anxiety, so the representation is of course great. I also appreciate that there wasn’t any romance in the novel!
However, this feels very much like the debut novel it is, and I found the plot hard to belie ...more
What stood out to me most in Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now were the characters/family dynamic and the themes. Both of these were sort of dark horse elements for me. I was expecting to fall in love with the plot. While it was still very interesting - I ultimately stayed for the themes and characters.
Tiffany instantly drew me in. She was polite, terrified, and intelligent. At the same time she was sassy, nuanced, and incredibly intelligent. Tiffany has severe anxiety and OCD. (She also has alopecia). ...more
Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now is a magical kind of book. It is a book that made me laugh and cry, a book that challenges the reader on everything from the definition of family and existential life questions, to acceptance, forgiveness, and the crazy things we do to make the world make sense. It’s a book about never giving up - on life or people. It’s a book about looking past the surface. It’s a book about life. And I loved it.
Tiffany Sly is on a plane to meet her father for the first time. A fathe ...more
