Personal Response:

I saw this book when we were supposed to read the blog for one of the professional readings. It caught my interest and decided to give it a try. It was quite good. I felt like some things were insinuated too hard and not explained enough. But it was a beautiful and enjoyable story, despite the sad parts.

Programming or curricular connections:

Stories dealing with grief, social tolerance, racial classifying, are all covered with this book. It would be good for any program pertaining to this. Or just a plain fiction program.
