Without spoiling anything, this book wrecked me. I’m sitting here now just dwelling on how sad it is, only to be horrified at the fact that it’s based on reality. This is my first Colson Whitehead book, but not my last. Even though you don’t spend a lot of time getting to know every character, I still felt deeply connected to the story that was told. Everyone should read this book.
