Marra B. Gad is what she refers to as a "mixed-race Jewish unicorn." Her biological parents are a white Jewish woman and a black father. Marra's adoptive parents are white and Jewish. This memoir brings the focus of these experiences down to one relationship - Marra's Great-Aunt Nette. At times, the book reads as self-serving, but it is ultimately a story about family and love. Choosing love is always good idea.

I did not like this writing and found so many times that dates or ages had to be wrong. However, I thought it was important for me to learn about this woman's experiences as a biracial Jew and that made it worthwhile. ( )

I spotted this in an article somewhere and was curious to read. I know of people who have similar experiences and was curious to see what the author's was like. Gad takes us through her life, with the first part dedicated to her childhood and growing up, dealing with family who did not accept the color of her skin as well as Black People not accepting that she was Jewish, too. The second part is how she comes to care for her aunt who is slipping away due to Alzheimer's.

As others say, the book is a mixed bag. Overall the first part was a compelling read for seeing how she navigated the two worlds and how difficult it could be not completely fitting in one or the other. But as others say, the text can be repetitive. The second part of the book is less interesting, as we see Gad as she cares for her aunt who was horribly racist but comes to suffer from Alzheimer's disease.

Despite some of the truly awful things her aunt has said and done, it seems Gad is able to at least somewhat put some of that behind her as her aunt continues to decline and through her death. It's sad but inevitable and I personally found Gad admirable for willing to spend time with her dreadful aunt.

I do think in the end it was a little hard to connect with Gad, perhaps of the writing but this could be solely an matter of different reading styles and personalities. It was worth borrowing from the library and perhaps for the right reader, a good purchase. ( )
