it was amazing

I was lucky enough to get this as an assigned reading while in high school. It is a book that has stayed with me throughout adulthood. The author came to speak to my class and after meeting her I loved the book even more.

The story of a young woman who doesnt realize how inbetween worlds she really is. Mixed race and wealthy growing up in a border town where the stark reality of poverty carries throughout. It might be heavy for the younger crowd but I read it very young and I dont think it did anything but build my appreciation for great books.

Its been 15 years since I first read the book and I still find myself comparing other books to it.

Pam I was fortunate to have the author as my high school English teacher. She is an amazing teacher, writer and person.
