⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½ • Fun fact: I live in the small suburb just north of Seattle that Octavia Butler lived and died in. My local bookstore was her local bookstore!
More historical fiction than science fiction and the hardest parts to read were the parts that once were a reality. I realize that I am privileged and ignorant of this time period, and this book yanked me into Dana's ordeal in a personal, brutal way and taught me so much. Deserving all the stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
