it was amazing
bookshelves: 2011-reads, non-fiction, racial-issues
Read from January 23 to February 06, 2011

I thought the author did a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. Fascinating, controversial and thought provoking, this book kept me turning the pages much faster than I would have expected. While it was not a FAVORITE (I tend to reserve those for love stories that sweep me away) I definitely feel comfortable giving this book 5 stars.
For my friends: there is a little bit of language and sexual content but it all comes from a true story.

Brandi Is this a true story or based on one or am I thinking of something different?
