5.0 out of 5 stars Timely, inspirational, and adorably romantic
Reviewed in the United States on 13 September 2020
A book you most certainly need to read, The Voting Booth is timely, inspirational, and adorably romantic. I couldn’t put this book down.

Brandy Colbert has written a relevant story that readers across the United States (and the world) should be ready to read. With an upcoming US election in 2020 the fervor felt by the main character Marva on Election Day is palpable. A feeling we should all absorb, kindle, and burn bright so that we can make the wave of change that Marva so keenly desires.

What is incredible about this book is that it all takes place over the course of a single day, but it feels like you’ve lived a lifetime with both the main characters. Told from two perspectives, Marva a passionately driven teen, voting for the first time and knows her right to vote is the first step to changing the world. Then there’s Duke, who just wants to get voting over with so he can get to his band’s first paying gig at the end of the day.

It’s the perfect set up to what unfolds.

Each character in The Voting Booth from the main cast to the supporting ones are all masterfully created. They felt like living breathing people. People who captivate you from the opening page. Finding you’ll never be the same once you’ve reached the end.

Being that this is my first read of Brandy Colbert I’m wondering why I haven’t read any of her works before. She is an artisans of words. Like a chef who is both comfortable and confident in their kitchen, she is able to craft a delicious story that will have you wanting more. If her other novels are anything like this one where the characters are a driving force, the story thought-provoking, leaving me with a satisfaction that has me full, then count me in. I am ready to read them all.

Not only are we swept away by the driving current that are the characters, but The Voting Booth takes on heavy topics. Be it voter suppression, racism, gun-violence or police brutality. Colbert sheds light on all of these important topics, she really tackles the inherent voter suppression like a skilled surgeon. She cuts through the tissue and fat, down to the marrow and exposes the cancer that people of color face during elections, where legislators will do anything to undermine voting rights in order to win.

Most importantly, the beauty of The Voting Booth not only lies within the remarkable narrative, but also the shared experiences we see between Marva and Duke. That even though time and time and time again Marva and Duke are turned away they do not back down. It is the truth that we should all strive to make: we have to own our convictions and take action to see the change we want in this world.
