Not only is it super appropriate to read a book with the word “snow” in the title, but this twist on Snow White is an absolute masterpiece. Set in 1953, Boy Novak moves to small town Massachusetts and marries a widower, becoming stepmother to his daughter, Snow Whitman. When the birth of Boy’s dark-skinned daughter, Bird, reveals that the Whitmans are light-skinned African Americans posing as white, the classic story gets turned on its head in enthralling new ways.
