it was amazing

The Vanishing Half delves into identity - does colour, or sex, define you? Or is that just the given, and you can identify and become whoever you choose?

The book spans 30-40 years - following the lives of two young twins living in Jim Crow southern states, where being black means you can be killed without retribution. And as the title says, one of those twins decides it's time to move on.

Well written, with believable characters and good voices, this is an excellent novel.
