A good book for discussion. Makes you think abut what is important.

While not a literary classic, this book was certainly a worthwhile, entertaining and enjoyable read. It was a great and timely book to read over the holiday season for our January meeting.

WHat happens when the child of a couple is born with clearly African American features.

Not great literature and not even particularly well written, but it is a good story with interesting twists and turns. It is an easy read and provided thoughtful discussion and interesting scenarios.
