I finished reading this book yesterday, it was very moving and I never knew the life you lived until now. Your book could not have been written better Jvonne. You really lived a hard life and now I understand why you were the way you were in school, very distant and very much alone.. I am glad you are doing better and thank you for accepting my apology. I hope your life is filled with joy, and a bicycle for you to ride when times can be hard. You really are an amazing person.

Your friend,

I received a complimentary copy.

I feel like the book is open, but very controversial as far as making the uncomfortable topic stand out and can spark quite a few different conversations depending on people's views. As far as being the reader I could not shy away from chapters and blush at others, this is something that has to be known and in the world today the KKK is still very much alive. The whole thing is heartbreaking and mind bending, but the ending gives hope and light.

I found the premise of this book intriguing and parts were spectacular to read however I wish more focus would have been placed on Ms. Hubbard's life with her racist father. I felt like she only skimmed the surface especially since the title made it appear that a large portion of the book would evolve around her father's involvement in the KKK.

They always tell you to never judge a book by its cover. When Jvonne was younger, she was judged, harshly. I knew she was a good person, no matter what or how she tried to hide the truth. She went through hell and came out on the other side. This book is her story of all the years of judgement and wrong doings she underwent. She is a remarkable person and she is no longer judged.

Good read

It is a very interesting book. Thank you for sharing such an inspiring story of courage and hope, showing that in the darkest moments of a woman's life, dark itself only teaches us to lookout for the light.

Shows an emotional scar many will never believe exists

This book really shows how tough life can be. A real life tabloid that defies logic . Count your blessings.
Annie Connors-Buckley

A book about an angry, selfish woman who sees in others what she refuses to see in herself. I was hoping for a book about a true survivor. Hopefully she will learn to forgive and have a truly happy life. Only then will she truly find the Peace that passerby all understanding.

I thought this would be interesting but I couldn't get past the poor grammar and punctuation. She hyphenated words without reason. So 111annoying I couldn't get past the first chapter.
