What's Mine and Yours by Naima Coster

Rating: 1.5 of 5 stars 
Pages: 341 pages
Published: March 2021

Book of the Month missed the mark with this recommendation — What's Mine and Yours by Naima Coster. The synopsis does not describe what the book is about, but I can't even tell you what it was about because it was all over the place. The constant switching between perspectives and time periods was ineffective and confusing. There was a lack of character development, and I was sorely disappointed that all of the brown and black people in this book were portrayed in such a negative light. I do not know what Coster was attempting to do, but this whole novel was poorly executed. If BOTM gave refunds, I would ask for one. However, the books are provided at such a discounted rate, I can let this one failure slide. 

Recommendation: I do not recommend this book, and I have nothing more to say beyond that. 

Until next time ... Read on!

Regardless of whether I purchase a book, borrow a book, or receive a book in exchange for review, my ultimate goal is to be honest, fair, and constructive. I hope you've found this review helpful.
