Publisher's Summary

On his first night in his new home, Warren spies two figures in the grass outside; when he screws up the nerve to confront them, they disappear. The next day he encounters ghosts of a different kind: In the face of the teenage girl he meets at a comics convention, he sees the mingled features of his white father and his black mother, both now dead. The girl is his daughter, and she thinks she's white.
Warren sets off to remake his life with a reluctant daughter he never knew and a haunted house and history he knows too well. In their search for a new life, they struggle with an unwanted house and its ghosts, fall in with a utopian mixed-race cult, and inspire a riot on Loving Day, the unsung holiday that celebrates interracial love.

Teen lit with heavy erotic imagery

This book has a great narrator who is perfectly matched to the first person narrative. His excellent interpretation is probably the only reason I finished the book rather than returning it quickly.
The character seemed more like stereotypes than people and the
situations and their responses never rang true for me. Emily Bazelon recommended this book on a podcast and I will ignore her literary suggestions in the future.

made me think about an issue that was new to me.

The supernatural part was weak and not essential to the story. Tanya and George's story was left dangling.
