I've tried to make an effort to read more diverse books this year & when this one showed up in a donation to my Little Free Library I knew it was time to read it. Toni Morrison is an incredible writer who pulls no punches. She gets to the heart & soul of the subject matter. Thru the child characters, Pecola, Claudia & Frieda, my insight into the effects of race, culture, and racism was expanded. Seeing these constructs thru the eyes of children was poignant.
