My, my, my....this book was something. To a blind man, color means nothing but......
I read this book in 2 days. Ella, a fatherless child, is being raised by her mother and her 2 siblings. Her mothers husband, Leeroy, is taking advantage of her without her mother knowing. Her father is from Ghana and left to go back, but the town's people goddip that she is the pastors love child. Her mother got really sick, and Leeroy abandoned the family. He sent her little sister off and took the money she had to get a nurse and got an apartment in town with another woman.
The hunting of Black folk, the killing of Ms. Kate Saint-James fiance Carl because her father found out he was Black despite his looks( fair skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes). Sooooooo, she thought she could clear her name by changing her name by living and interviewing amongst Black people. Her past was revealed through a little girl, Ella. She befriends Ella and gains the Black communities' trust. However, She was just as bad as her father, because at 15 she killed a boy to prove to her father she's just like him. The incident at the lake was the start of bringing up her past along with that damn journal. Like whyyyyyy would you write about you and your families crimes and tote it around, ughhhhhh. Ella began to revered herself as beautiful and smart when she used to look down on herself. I must say this book had me hooked from beginning to end. I told you too much in this review. However, it's much more to know, just get it and read. #Book6of2023 #Bookworm #Whatsnext
