I am devastated after reading this book. It is too heavy. I know, have known, of this injustice. I have been saddened. But this book, the perspective, it was brutal. I am so thankful my 10 year old read it & was so moved that he insisted I read it too. It took me 2 hours to read it. Through tear & snot filled sobs, I got through it. I'm not the same as when I started. I wish there were no willful ignorance & hate. I wish everyone would read this.
