An Unkindness of Ghosts

 
An Unkindness of Ghosts
By Rivers Solomon

I saw all kinds of rave reviews for this, and frankly I just loved the title. Plus it's psychologically driven science fiction and #OwnVoices. The smartness of this book reminded me so much of Margaret Atwood. And like Atwood, it is not a comfortable read. But Rivers Solomon’s writing is a joy, the book’s protagonists are lovingly drawn and relatable, and the plot builds on classics while offering something thoroughly unique.

Reader warning: The protagonists live among racists. There is physical and psychological brutality. But the ending is one of hope rather than despair.
