Helen Oyememi

Based on reviews I had read of Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyememi, I approached the novel ancitipating an imaginative retelling of Snow White. I was somewhat disappointed, therefore, to find little connection with that classic fairy tale. Nevertheless, the novel was well-written and engaging primarily because it illustrates the devestating impact racism and internalized racism can have on an individual's self-image and life choices.
