This is a terrible idea for a book. As a woman of color, I find it extremely offensive to see a woman in blackface on the promotion, a comparison to Beauty and the Beast, where a black man is considered 'beastly', and the names of the two races themselves - 'pearl' for white and 'coal' for black - what is this author trying to convey here? I'm sure anyone with a brain can guess. As a young adult, my intelligence is insulted - how could this be considered good literature when it blatantly trivializes the trials and tribulations of actual slavery? It can't - this book is absolute trash.
