I wouldn't be surprised to see this book being taught in schools as part of the English curriculum in a few years or so. Bennett is a strong writer, and her book will definitely spark meaningful discussions among students. The story of the Vignes twins is embedded in colorism and race, but Bennet simultaneously comments on other heavy topics such as motherhood, domestic violence, loneliness, identity, and the struggles of being part of the LGBTQ+ community. Aside from this novel being really thought-provoking and important during this time, the story of the twins and their family was captivating from start to finish- the characters were complex and fun to read, and the plot was gripping. I would totally recommend this to anyone and everyone!
