The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
Sam’s first review of the year

Sam’s last review of the year
it was amazing
Really beautiful and intimate set of stories about the complex emotions around black women and their hair. As a white woman, I am absolutely certain that a lot of this went over my head and I'm sure it resonated more deeply with folks who have lived similar experiences.
