⚜️Book Review⚜️ 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑽𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑯𝒂𝒍𝒇 𝒃𝒚 @britrbennett ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 When I initially started to read this book, I read the first chapter and it wasn’t the right time for me to read it. I am so happy I picked this book back up because the writing was phenomenal. I’m from Louisiana and I know of those small towns the twins were from. In fact, my family was from a town that no longer “exists” on the map anymore. I was captivated in every way how the twins split, one becoming a white woman and the other kept to her roots and maintained she was indeed a black girl. Creoles live a lonely life, they never seem to fit in any category because of their “yellow skin”. I loved that this went past multi generations and how the two nieces grew up with such different life’s because of the color difference of the skin. This is a moving, touching and makes you realize just how important family is to you. No one can truly understand you like your family can. My only downside was that there wasn’t that first chapter hook.
