Another of Nicole's favorites from 2020:

The best kind of epic, multigenerational family saga! The Vanishing Half takes its readers from small town Louisiana to New Orleans, California and New York following one family from the 1950s to the 1990s as their lives and relationships blossom, expand and fracture. At its heart is a story of passing - the many ways of passing - of what it feels like to be judged harshly and immediately based solely on your outward appearance; and how a person learns to hide, rebel, or adapt when who they are inside clashes with the way they are perceived by others. It's a nuanced and moving story of race, gender identity, prejudice, friendship, and love. The kind of compulsively readable, but rich and thought-provoking story that makes for book club gold!
