Here’s what I had to say about it:

“We know it’s not going to be all sunshine and lollipops. But what I wasn’t prepared for was the playful innocence of the writing and the deep maternal care that we are witness to…Danai Gurira writes dialogue between these young adult women that is both fun, flirtatious, and caring…Beautifully directed with unflinching honesty by Liesl Tommy, ‘Eclipsed’ makes us painfully aware of the history and the terror of these women’s lives.” Full Review
