really liked it
Read in April, 2011 — I own a copy

I really enjoyed this book and I wish the author had written more backstory for the characters and delved even further into the themes. Each chapter written from a different character's point of view really sounded different, which is not often the case when authors try shifting perspectives like this. And being from the South, the racism rang uncomfortably true.
