I really tried to keep an open mind while I read this because of all the reviews and controversy surrounding this book, but I had to DNF by page 30 before I lost my marbles.

The reverse discrimination set in a Dystopian future was too intense and uncomfortable for me to read because it started right away and doesn't let up.

Also making the heroine have "black face" and explain why her people, the Pearls aka the whites were considered less than second class citizens by the Coals aka the blacks just rubbed me the wrong way. Also the fact that the heroine had to mate before she turned 18 or would die or get killed was too misogynistic for me. A young girl doesn't mate with a man deserves to die? So not my thing.

Better to stop reading because my inner Hulk wants to smash something.

Ceilidh I do not get the reasoning behind someone thinking using black-face as a plot device to demonstrate the oppression of WHITE PEOPLE is a good idea. There is way too much sensitive historical context behind black-face for anyone to use it so flippantly.

She's claiming the San Francisco Book Review loved her work. Observe:

Eva Rose Reading her blog is offensive, I can just imagine how angry I would be by reading her book. This entire affair is rage inducing to say the least.
