This is the first time this has ever happened to me on Edublogs – I spent an hour writing a 300 word review and it all disappeared suddenly. The site froze and POUF.
This is a really good book. It draws you in from page one.
My criticisms are minor.
The writing is superb, the story is powerful and the issues thought-provoking.
The book deals with racism, with “passing” as white, with gender issues. Lots of mother-daughter issues.
It mainly deals with reinventing one’s life in very different ways.
It’s engaging and I recommend it!
