Jude's skin is 'blue black' yet her mother is so pale. When she meets a messed up white girl at a party she begins to unravel a connection and discovers her aunt living as a white woman. Jude and Reese have hidden secrets of their own. I loved this book and all the complex characters who are irresistible. I felt totally engaged with them from start to finish. The tension increases as the pages turn and makes this unputdownable!
