The Vanishing Half


Authoe: Brit Bennett

Narrator: Shayna Small

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Year: 2021

Happy Friday! 

I feel like I’m one of the last people to finally read this book. This was all over bookstagram when it published last year. I put off reading it for awhile and then thought I should read it to see if my irl book club might want to read it some day. I think I had to wait about three months for the audiobook to be available from the library. It was worth the wait! 

I really enjoyed this multigenerational story. Author Brit Bennett examines race and identity with this story of twin light skinned Black girls and the choices they make with their lives. The effects those choices have when the lives of the next generation collide. Shayna Small’s narration is riveting and flowed perfectly with the story. 

What are you reading this weekend? Any fun plans? I should probably run the vacuum cleaner. 😀
