Praise for SHE WOULD BE KING:

“Moore’s stunning debut novel is a magic-realism tour de force taking readers on a journey through the beginnings of Liberia. There is an aching sweetness to Moore’s writing that effectively captures the dichotomous and vulnerable strength of her protagonists and catapults this into the realm of books that cast a long-lingering spell.” — Booklist, starred review

“As with Yaa Gyasi’s HOMEGOING, this work will appeal to lovers of African, African American, and literary fiction.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove
