Is Bahni Turpin the default narrator for black literature now? If so, we need to change this ASAP! I usually love her narrations, heck, she was the reason I enjoyed 'The Help' so much. But she was not suited for this story. She made Vera sound like a stuck up ice queen that bore no resemblance to the lovable character from FlipSide of the Game and Game Over. Well, maybe that wasn't all Turpin's fault.
I love Whitaker's writing and her way of building drama but it's becoming too predictable. Or maybe I've lost the desire for black drama that perpetuates the mad black woman stereotype.
