Young Adult Fiction. Young Adult Literature. HTML:

Hoping to raise money for a post-graduation trip to London, Asha Jamison and her best friend Carey decide to sell T-shirts promoting the Latte Rebellion, a club that raises awareness of mixed-race students.
But seemingly overnight, their "cause" goes viral and the T-shirts become a nationwide social movement. As new chapters spring up from coast to coast, Asha realizes that her simple marketing plan has taken on a life of its own??and it's starting to ruin hers. Asha's once-stellar grades begin to slip, threatening her Ivy League dreams, while her friendship with Carey hangs by a thread. And when the peaceful underground movement spins out of control, Asha's school launches a disciplinary hearing. Facing expulsion, Asha must decide how much she's willing to risk for something she truly believes in.
Praise:

"Stevenson's debut novel expertly handles complex issues around race and ethnic identity without seeming pedantic. A welcome addition to a rapidly evolving genre of multiethnic young adult literature."??SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Asha is engaging and the depiction of her journey??a realistic mess of vague hopes, serendipitous events, serious missteps and gutsy choices??compellingly original."??KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Young readers facing real life racism are sure to be inspired by the story."??FOREWORD MAGAZINE

"This coming-of-age story is craftily written, fast paced and delivers a message of doing the right thing under difficult circumstances. The Latte Rebellion is a wonderful, conceptual story from a new author with strong promise of becoming established in the YA genre."??VOYA

"The portrayal of Asha's initially misguided but relatable social awakening is so honest that readers will find themselves first cringing at her efforts, then cheering her on."??BOOKLIST

"[The Latte Rebellion] is more than the typical high school story. [It] will strike a chord with those students who are trying to find their place in society."??LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION

"A thoughtful taste of one girl's attempt at being a world-traveling, latte-drinking, singularly awesome individual in a world determined to herd her into being classified as either coffee or milk."??TANITA S. DAVIS, AUTHOR OF MARE'S WAR, A CORETTA SCOTT KING HONOR BOOK

"Get ready to start your own rebellion after gulping down Sarah Stevenson's deftly written, multi-layered story about growing a voice, growing apart, and most of all, growing up girl."??JUSTINA CHEN, AUTHOR OF NORT… (mais)

This plodding tome didn't take off until the chapter where the Latte Rebellion hosts a sit-in at the school. Then we really get a glimpse of the realities of living as a multiracial youth. Disappointing for what I was expecting. ( )

I didn't finish this. The narration of this spunky protagonist was amusing and could've kept me interested, but the book wasn't what I expected. Based on the back cover, I thought I'd be able to relate to this passionate high school student who tries to do something idealistic and profound (meet my high school self). Her project gains momentum, goes viral, she can no longer control its impact, and she then gets busted. This sounded like a successful version of me as a teen (whose projects never left the idea stage) and it sounded great.
However, Asha really wasn't very passionate and had only mercenary motivation to start the "Latte Rebellion", and she maintained that for the first 100 pages at least (that's when I quit) while sometimes mildly implying that it may have been something grand, but she couldn't really put her finger on its grander purpose other than to get money. I didn't really care about the Latte Rebellion, because it really wasn't anything admirable for such a significant portion of the book. I can assume that it will become rather meaningful and unifying, I guess, and that she will try to make herself out to be some kind of martyr for a cause at her expulsion hearing, but how is the reader supposed to care when that wasn't the intent?

The flaws of this book are not the writing; it's just that it didn't mesh with what I was looking for. ( )

Asha and Carey are seniors in high school and they can't until college so they can do something with their lives. Asha comes up with a plan, The Latte Rebellion. Asha is half Indian, a quarter Mexican and a quarter Irish. At school, people expect her to choose one race over the other and Asha doesn't believe in that concept. The Latte Rebellion says I'm multiracial and proud of it. The whole thing just started out as selling T-shirts to earn money to go to London after high school, but after one week of selling online, everything starts to get out of hand. More than 3,000 people are buying each day and Asha has to keep a low profile. At the end, The Latte Rebellion has died down and Asha does reach her goal and goes to London.
I liked how Asha came up with an idea and went through with it. I know me and I come up with an idea and never really do anything about it. I'm a little disappointed that Carey gave up on the plan after awhile. I felt bad for Asha because this plan was originally made for both her and Carey. I didn't think it was fair for Carey just to leave Asha like she did. Overall, this book was really good although I didn't understand some things at first and had to re-read it. This book is more for high-school. ( )

An interesting take on something that is in all of us, but most of us do not think much about it.

The jeering male voice came from somewhere behind me, waking me up from a heatstroke-induced doze. "Hey, check it out - Asha's a towel-head." I'm a WHAT? My neck got even warmer, and not just because it was sweltering at Ashmont Community Park.
