    " Wow, Suzanne was right, this is a great book! It was sad, which I usually love, and very powerful. I also grew up in this same time also in a small town in the Midwest. It was very sad to think that this may have so closely reflected real life at that time. I read it very quickly and will likely re-read at some point. Highly recommend. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this coming of age story about a young girl named Michelle. She's biracial, born to a white father and a Japanese mother. When she's left with her white grandparents in Wisconsin she finds herself the target of bigotry and racism. Her grandfather Charlie is her refuge. Although he dotes on Michelle, Charlie shows himself to be as bigoted and racist as those who malign Michelle when a black couple move into the community. "

    " This books destroyed me in the most beautiful way. Nina Revoyr writes and presents this story in such a heart-breaking way. I struggled between rationing the pages and forging forward. I ended up losing my struggle and read and read and cried and cried. I haven't been moved like this by a book in a very long time. "

    " Oh my. This was not an easy read. The writing was fine, but the subject matter was TOUGH. There is some language (the N word and F word, specifically) used throughout, to describe the racism that prevailed in this small Wisconsin town in the early 1970s. The hardest part was that I thought it was a true story and there was brutality that I just wasn't expecting. "
