Recommended to Tracy by: read it for two different college classes
Read in February, 2004 , read count: 2

Short, to the point, but undeniably real and beautiful. Womens' oppression, Ethnic poverty (poor jobs, settling for the barrio), all colors and races being afraid of the other ones, wanting for escape but knowing escape is futile because you can't escape who you are.
