Read full description of the books:
This dual narrative, told through first and third person POV, follows Hope -- a black girl from a nice, middle class family -- and Dessa -- a white girl who has been in and out of the foster care/home system for much of her life. When Dessa's taken in by Hope's family, she's a lot of things: angry, confused, resentful, and, deep down, ready to be accepted into a place where she fits. She's placed in Hope's family's home because her biological half-brother Austin was placed with them, and she wants nothing more than to be with family again.
This is a story, though, about what family means, rather than what it looks like. Davis does an excellent job of exploring racial issues, of deep-seated biases regarding money and, perhaps the part that wasn't a focus but really did sing, body politics.
A complicated, nuanced, and enjoyable read. Would pair really interestingly with SEE NO COLOR by Shannon Gibney, for sure.
