Really wanted to enjoy this book. Subject was very important and should still be read by young readers, especially girls. However, content seem to be lacking emotional depth for this subject matter. I would still recommend it.

An important and inspiring story told, unfortunately, in a relatively uninspired manner.

The cruelty of racial prejudice was so often accompanied by absurdity, a tangle of arbitrary rules and distinctions that subverted the shared interests of people who had been taught to see themselves as irreconcilably different.
