First Looks

First Look: Boy, Snow, Bird


“Sparkling with wit and vibrancy, Boy, Snow, Bird is a deeply moving novel about three women and the strange connection between them.”

This book was recommended to me by my good friend and reader extraordinaire, Aly. Aly has been keeping a journal of books to read since before I met her, in our sophomore English class. Boy, Snow, Bird was one of her top books last year, and that was enough to get it on my list! I am really looking forward to reading a lose retelling of Snow White that deals with race and colorism, and I hear Oyeyemi is a masterful writer.
