My heart is full to bursting with Naima Coster’s life-affirming novel. What’s Mine and Yours follows two families at the turn of the 21st century, connected by love and conflict through North Carolina’s policy of busing students to diversify schools. Each character is fully formed, complicated, beloved, and absolutely necessary to the thoughtful exploration of how we are bound together and also isolated, by the past, by race and class, by being imperfectly human. The reading experience is at once intimate and expansive. —Melinda
