Yesterday is History

By: Kosoko Jackson
Trade Paperback
Young Adult January 2022
*Shipped January 2022*


Weeks ago, Andre Cobb received a much-needed liver transplant.

He's ready for his life to finally begin, until one night, when he passes out and wakes up somewhere totally 1969, where he connects with a magnetic boy named Michael.

And then, just as suddenly as he arrived, he slips back to present-day Boston, where the family of his donor is waiting to explain that his new liver came with a side effect—the ability to time travel. And they've tasked their youngest son, Blake, with teaching Andre how to use his unexpected new gift.

Andre splits his time bouncing between the past and future. Between Michael and Blake. Michael is everything Andre wishes he could be, and Blake, still reeling from the death of his brother, Andre's donor, keeps him at arm's length despite their obvious attraction to each other.

Torn between two boys, one in the past and one in the present, Andre has to figure out where he belongs—and more importantly who he wants to be—before the consequences of jumping in time catch up to him and change his future for good.

Captivating and had a very unpredictable plot

Yesterday is History, written by Kosoko Jackson, is a fast read that follows the emotional journey of Andre Cobb Andre Cobb is a cancer survivor. Due to cancer in his liver, he needed a transplant, and was lucky enough to get one. After his liver transplant, Andre was hoping he could return to his normal life, and for some time, it seemed he could. His body was accepting his new liver, and everything seemed to be ok, except for a dull pain. This pain is something Andre would have never expected. On his journey through the craziness his new liver brought, he falls in love, breaks his heart, and discovers himself. This book is about a liver transplant, but is also about what it's like to live in America as a black gay teen. While it is mostly a fun, funny book, there are many deeper, more meaningful parts. I found the story to be captivating and had a very unpredictable plot.
