    After hanging with the vampires, angels, and what-have-you I decided I was excited to read a DARING contemporary read. This was not it. The back promised a shake up of the world of people who did not recognize people of color. The title promised a "rebellion". The word terrorist was thrown around in the first few pages-whoo, I thought, "This one will be a thought provoking, discussion starting blaze of a novel!" Nope.The main problem here, for me, was Asha. I didn't like her. The reason I did no [...]

    This is my review for MCBD2018.The Latte RebellionSarah Jamila Stevenson“What are you?” Seventeen-year-old Asha Jamison is tired of answering this question. Being a mixed-race person, she constantly feels that both she and others like her have to pick sides in order to fit in. Asha describes mixed-race people as “human lattes”, coming in all shades. From these experiences, Asha and her best friend, Casey, create the Latte Rebellion, a club that raises awareness of mixed-race students as [...]

    The Latte Rebellion follows Asha Jamison, your ordinary teenage girl with extraordinary dreams that finds herself at the bad end of a racial slur during a pool party. When one of her fellow classmates calls her a “towel-head,” Asha and her friend Carey dream up something they call “The Latte Rebellion.” A group formed for all those who don’t quite fit into a single ethnic background, Asha decides to capitalize on the idea to make a little money on the side…but she had no idea that Th [...]

    This is the story of Asha, the straight A high school student who, with her friend, come up with The Latte Rebellion as a way to bring acknowledgement to people of mixed races (and how they don't really fit in anywhere) as well as to sell t-shirts to raise money for their vacation before college starts. Of course everything gets waaaaay out of hand and that is what this story is about. This book gave me a lot of food for thought: being mixed race myself I totally agreed with the feelings of the [...]

    I tried to like this one, but after 100 pages I just didn't care about Asha, Carey or their cause. In real-time, Asha's facing the school board at an expulsion hearing for her work organizing and promoting the latte rebellion-or the positive qualities of mixed race people. The trouble for me is that the real cause, for the vast majority of the book, is selling enough latte rebellion t-shirts to fund a vacation with her friends. In the end, I didn't read on to discover if Asha's rebellion morphed [...]

    don't usually mind slow starts in contemporary novels and this one was no exception. I liked getting the backstory and feeling completely immersed in Asha's world, I was satisfied with the little everyday details. I would warn you though that it takes awhile for the actual rebellion to start but stick with the book. I was a bit peeved at how some characters emerged for a chapter and then faded away, only to be called again a few chapters later. Thad and Bridget were both brought into the story b [...]

    When Asha, a soon-to-be senior, gets called a towel head at the local community pool because she is: A) part Indian and B) has a beach towel on her head, she realizes the inequities that continue to abound in her world. On a whim and a joke, Asha and her best friend Carey conspire to create t-shirts to sell with The Latte Rebellion printed on them. The girls love lattes and joke that they themselves are lattes – the more ingredients, the better! Their money-making venture spins out of control [...]

    This is one hell of a debut- it's smart, well-written at a good pace, and also fun. The story starts with the incident that starts the Latte Rebellion and then shifts to the following year after things get out of hand and Asha is at the disciplinary hearing. Each chapter is like this- the majority of it starting in the summer and going chronologically with a few pages at the end taking place at the disciplinary hearing the following April. In the last 60 pages or so, the story catches up and we [...]

    Originally posted here at Random Musings of a Bibliophile.The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson has been on my TBR for years. It's one of those books that I just kept pushing down the list for newer ones as they came out. Then I saw it on display while at the library a couple weeks ago and decided now was the time to read it. I'm glad I did. Asha is a character easy for me to relate to. She is driven and good at organizing things. She also has a deep seeded fear of failure and disappoint [...]

    The latte rebellion centers around a girl name Asha, the mixed race straight A student. She and her friends create the latte rebellion hoping to gain money on a trip after college. Soon her priorities change for the latte rebellion and she sees that the latte rebellion is more then just a money making enterprise. But how far will Asha go for the the Latte Rebellion. I thought the book was okay book. I liked how they did show kids to stand up for what they believe but i got some mix messages in t [...]

    In The Latte Rebellion Asha is mixed up. Ethnically speaking that is. So on a whim her and a friend begin the Latte Rebellion. It begins as a way to make some vacation money, but it explodes into a movement. I liked parts of this book, but after a while, it began to grate on my nerves. Asha was so caught up in what started off as a joke that when it became important, she didn't know how to properly handle it. I guess that is realistic, but it still drove me crazy. By the end I was glad to see he [...]

    I thought this book had a lot of meaning and strong opions about racism. The characters were relatable and I made conncetions about them and my own life. I also could see the characters changing through out the book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes realitic fiction.

    I don't know if this would be a 2.5 or a 3 for me. I didn't hate this book. I didn't actively dislike it but I also didn't love it. I think the premise was interesting and some lines and thoughts were very deep and got me thinking. I think my problem is that for almost half of the book Asia's attachment to the Rebellion is based solely on the money she will get from it. She also exhibits parts of high school students as made up characters (see also stereotypes) I find utterly annoying (constantl [...]

    The book "the Latte Rebellion" is about a group of students trying to raise money for a post-graduation trip to London. To raise the money for the trip Asha Jamison and her friend Carey decide to sell some T-Shirts promoting the club that they had started to raise awareness for mixed-race students. Overnight the cause goes viral and the T-Shirts that they had made had become a nationwide movement. As it continues to spread, Asha soon realizes that the rebellion is starting to ruin her life. Asha [...]

    this was the first book I ever read where the mc vaguely resembled me, in that we're both indian. asha's mixed, which I couldn't relate to, and I admittedly don't like coffee, but this BOOK, you guys. it's really well-written and takes me back to a time where I was learning not to hate myself because of the way my skin was colored, or when little boys called me a "t.wel-head," the same situation as asha in the beginning of the bookk I am very fond of this book and I at least love what it represe [...]

    This was not as satisfying as I hoped it would be. Granted, the author let you know from the start that the scheme was a whole capitalist ploy by bored teenagers. It was inauthentic from the start and it didn’t really get any better.Yes, the one girl got into it but even so, her involvement was superficial, the group ended up doing nothing. The characters themselves weren’t anything amazing. It was readable but the story lacked so much oomph.

    2.5 stars.I was all ready to dnf this book sixteen pages in. I absolutely hated the narrator's voice, and to be honest, I felt like I was reading an Englsh composition by a thirteen-year-old."I'm a WHAT? My neck got even warmer, and not just because it was sweltering at Ashmont Community Park.Whoever it was, was he kidding me? Nobody used that phrase anymore unless they were hopelessly ignorant about headwear, or still carrying around a post-9/11 grudge. I knew I should be really offended.Mostly [...]

    Even though I hadn't heard much about this book, I had high hopes for The Latte Rebellion. YA books don't often address social justice issues in such an explicit way, so I thought I would appreciate that The Latte Rebellion does. And while I really liked the idea, it just doesn't work as well as I'd hoped. I had some issues with how the movement is handled, and the actual story develops didn't really hold my interest, so I was pretty disappointed by this one.I was expecting a main character who [...]

    I'm at a loss as to how to review this. I read it in about a day which, right now for me, is really good. YA is still a fairly new genre for me even though I'm reading more than ever before. When I read the description for this on a friends blog I was curious but wasn't sure I'd like it. To be honest I don't like the title at all. I "get" the title. But I still don't like it. As for the characters, I have to disagree with the reviewers who hated Asha because of how she acted. I know a lot of peo [...]

    Finally, a teen book that isn't about love issues, parent issues, or friend issues (well, it has a bit of each of those) but the main theme of this story is issues bigger than ourselves: raising cultural awareness for a people of mixed cultures. This book isn't about racism, it's about understanding.Asha's father is half Irish, half Mexican. Her mother is Indian. Holidays are a bit tense in her family because they're trying to follow traditions from three different cultures. At high school, Asha [...]

    The book I read is called “The Latte Rebellion” by Sarah Stevenson. The genre of this book is Young Adult Fiction. The main characters of my book include Asha, Carrie, Miranda, Ashas Parents, and Leonard. The setting of “The Latte Rebellion” takes place mainly in a coffee shop or at one of the girls house or at school.The main plot of this book is that Asha, Carrie And Miranda thought they need to do something about people's mixed ethnicity's and how people suggest their ethnicity whiteo [...]

    I am both very impressed and annoyed with The Latte Rebellion. It does touch base with deep societal issues that are still prevalent today (RACISM); however, for such a story focused on social justice, it is an awful shame the main character has no problem expressing ableist and slut-shaming beliefs. While growing up, I rarely came across young adult books that included a multiracial main character. It seemed to always be one race, and though there is nothing wrong with one-race characters, cons [...]

    I really wanted to like "The Latte Rebellion", but the book just didn't do it for me. I originally got into the book thinking it would be an interesting read about girls banding together to make a difference in the world, but there seemed to be very little of this. It didn't really bother me that Asha and Carey's plan stemmed from a marketing scheme to help them plan a summer trip, the fact that they did believe in what they were putting on the shirts made it okay for me. What I didn't like was [...]

    After an offhand racist remark from one of her classmates, high-school senior Asha Jamison decides to start a school club for mixed race students. She is part Indian, part Mexican and part Irish and tired of feeling pulled in multiple directions. I was surprised when school administrators blocked her efforts to create a multi-cultural club at school. They already sponsor an Asian-American club, and several other clubs to support specific ethnic groups. I was mystified that they'd choose not to s [...]

    The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson is an offbeat contemporary coming of age novel that I found both engaging and conceptually noteworthy in plot, characterization, and theme.From the beginning when Asha and Carey, two smart and academically driven seniors, decide to sell T-shirts as a way to raise money for a much needed summer vacation, I was caught up in their money making scheme. I loved how Stevenson used lattes as a metaphor for her mixed-race protagonists and how she catapulted [...]

    Asha Jamison’s classmates are quick to categorize her. She is called both a “towelhead” and “barely Asian.” Asha and her best friend Carey have a harder time describing their own ethnicities. Asha is part Indian, part Mexican, and part Irish, while Carey is half Chinese and half Caucasian. When they begin describing themselves as lattes—a mix of coffee and milk—they start brainstorming ways to distribute their idea to other multiethnic teens and coffee lovers. The Latte Rebellion i [...]

    Asha Jamison and her best friend Carey Wong want to go on a trip after they graduate from high school. Both girls are model students, on track for acceptance into great colleges, and they feel like they deserve a break. In order to fund their theoretical vacation, they come up with a business plan to sell t-shirts advertising The Latte Rebellion--a simple idea that asks people who come from mixed race backgrounds to stand up and be proud of their skin and their backgrounds. What starts as a simp [...]

    While this was a cute and short read (technically it was short but it took me a few days longer than what I would have expected not because it was boring but I just had other more interesting books to read and I was also away on business), I’m conflicted on whether or not I actually liked this bookOS: the concept of this book was different and was actually relevant to today’s society with the whole “#blacklivesmatters” protests and the whole racial discrimination going on in America toda [...]

    Best friends Asha Jamison and Carey Wong, senior year and friendship are threatened after an inappropriate joke at a pool party. Roger Yee, a classmates calls Asha a towel head. Asha and Carey are tired of the misconception and inappropriate remarks of their peers."The heat rose behind my cheeks, my head filling with any number of things I could tell her. Carey is not Japanese. And J. Lo. is not from Mexico - she's a Puerto Rican American. This is not even close to the same thing. There are thes [...]

    I will describe "The Latte Rebellion" as a Contemporary YA novel, which brings into focus the feeling and notion of being of a mixed ethnicity. That was one of the reasons why I was so exited to read it and find out more about the "rebellion".It was a great read.I will make no mystery about how it all started: slow. If you are one of those readers (like me) who have been spoiled with a strong hook from the start of a story, you may need a little bit of patience with this book. Why am I giving th [...]
