Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward.

This novel won the National Book Award 2017. According to the New York Times 

Sing, Unburied, Sing is a dark, fable like family epic set in contemporary Mississippi that grapples with race,
poverty and the psychic scars of past violence.

The novel, which critics compared to works by William Faulkner and Toni Morrison, features a 13-year-old boy named Jojo, whose drug-addicted mother takes him and his toddler sister on a road trip to pick up their white father when he is released from prison. The judges called the book “a narrative so beautifully taut and heartbreakingly eloquent that it stops the breath."
