The novel focuses on mothers and women. Even though she committed suicide, Nadia's mother is an important character. Aubrey and Nadia both seem to be betrayed by the men in their lives, as well as their mothers, but the story focuses on the relationships the girls build with one another - and other women.
I think she did that very well. Honestly, there were times when I had to remind myself that Nadia was black. I am also a white female, so I cannot speak to what it is like to be a member of the black community. However, while there are differences, there are also similarities and maybe that is what the author was trying to highlight.
