Black & White is an intense, beautiful, and haunting book. I could not put it down, and was completely engrossed in the story of Clara, a girl whose mother became famous for nude photographs of Clara. 14 years have passed, and Clara lives far from her mother and sister, in another world on an island in Maine – she disappeared from their lives when she ran away at 18. Her old world as an ambivalent model for her mother in NYC and her new world as a stay-at-home mom in a small town collide when her mother is dying of cancer.
This is an amazing book that I highly recommend, especially for anyone who had dealt or is dealing with imperfect mother-daughter relationships.
