Read in December, 2008

Although the issues around race and identity seen from the point of view of an African-American girl adopted by white parents is of value, this book felt like a draft, rather than a finished work. It didn't hold together well enough, and most characters and relatanships weren't developed enough.

Dedria A. The race issues seemed to be more the problem of the protagonist than in her environment. I like the way the book kept moving but did not understand the title.
