Recommended by a friend in grad school who read it for an African-American lit class. I like it when books of worthy of study but also enjoyable! My main quibble with this book was how easily the two protagonists accepted their wierd situation. I felt like it warranted a bit more tension before they succumbed to it. But, I suppose the novel would have had a harder time carrying on if that were the case.

Thegirlintheafternoon Agreed re: your skepticism over how quickly Dana and Kevin were like, "Well, I guess this is just a thing that's happening."
