Well, you convinced me! I am putting this one on my list. It sounds like a heartfelt examination of friendship and race. Nice review!

I have not read many books that tell of racial tension. I am hesitant to read this one. I sometimes get sensitive. Thanks for the review!
I can understand that. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

The author was able to successfully write about fictional characters in a very real setting. The bits of history mentioned, especially those related to racial climate, must really add something to the story. It's not a genre I would normally read, but I appreciate your great and honest review!

This sounds like a great read, but not one for me. Stories like this don't keep my attention well. Thank you for your review!
