"Boy, Snow, Bird" was my book club's choice of the month. I'm not sure that I would have personally chosen this book to read but it's a great example of why I joined a book club in the first place.

Boy, Snow, Bird sketches a vivid portrait of the relationship between a white mother and her biracial daughter and step-daughter.

Not sure she loves him, Boy marries Arturo (whose quiet goodness is increasingly endearing to the reader and Boy) largely because she loves Snow, a fair-haired beauty who charms everyone she meets. But when Boy gives birth to her own daughter, Bird, the Whitmans’ deepest secret is revealed—Arturo’s parents are actually light-skinned.

With this book boy and the bird book proves an even great ability: she can thaw a heart.” —John Freeman, Boston Globe “Like Hitchcock, Oyeyemi is interested not merely in what happens when you attempt to pass for someone else, but in the porous boundaries between one self and another [Boy, Snow, Bird is] an intriguing, sinuously attractive book.”/5(23).

Helen Oyeyemi was a new author to me, and I became aware of her book "Boy, Snow, Bird: A Novel" through an recommendation on Amazon. The narrative is in the first person, but each chapter has a different narrator, telling the story of one suffering family over two generations/5().
