Clare is supposed to be passing to white eyes but black people got her tea. The discourse that y’all are having about if she is passing or not and the consequences of that is exactly what the book is about. So the casting is successful.

I love Twitter cause it's like a scavenger hunt. Every day I get to follow the clues to find out why people are mad, and if I win, I get to be mad too!
