About the Novel:
Genesis Begins Again follows the coming-of-age struggles as teenage girl Genesis learns to love herself amid family troubles. Genesis has a hard time fitting in. She is not happy with the way she looks. All this stems from how her father looks at her. Her father has his own struggles, one of which is paying the rent. This leads to Genesis’ family getting evicted from their house. This has happened before, but this time is different. The family find themselves in a mostly white, upper-class neighborhood. Genesis is enrolled in a much nicer school than she’s used to. She begins to make real friends and discover her aptitude for music. With the encouragement of her teacher, Genesis signs up for the talent show, something she never thought she’d do. When a new eviction notice is posted on their door, Genesis doesn’t know if she’ll be around long enough to see her dreams come true.
