This book was different to anything that I have ever read before and I think it is something that a lot of people should read. I learned a lot from this book about the varying experiences of people of colour and the racism within communities. Bennett's writing is intriguing, heart-felt, honest and raw – which is what made me really like this book. There was no avoiding the issues at hand here: it was stated clearly and boldly... it was the life lived by millions of people. 
I highly recommend this book!

Found the characters too one dimensional for how heavy the topic of the book was. Not enough depth or growth in the characters to make me want to continue reading
