Nadia Great review! Thanks for putting your 'pen to paper' on this one, your thoughts were very interesting. I agree that reading it as an adult can take away from the magic of reading it as a child. I'm re-reading it now as an adult so I can read it aloud to my 4th graders, and there's definitely a shift in my perspectives about the book.

I was curious about what part of the story you were referring to when you said:

"This was also my first experience with an ethical dilemma. The idea that doing the wrong thing for the right reason could actually be doing the right thing blew my mind"

Jennie Nadia, I think there are several parts of the story that could be analyzed as an ethical dilemma, depending on whose perspective you take. However, taking Winnie's perspective, the part where she helps break Mae out of jail was what I had in mind. I think in reading it as a kid, I never looked at any of the other characters perspectives since the book wasn't in their point of view.

Sylver Wow! wonderful review for an amazing book. I'm 32, and I read it for the first time today. I wish I had it as a girl because of it's deep messages.
