I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing was very good and the characters were well developed. The point of view was interesting and informative. Glad I read this book. – Steph
• I enjoyed this read and at times couldn’t put it down. However, toward the end, I started getting annoyed at the characters. Now, looking back, I’m not sure how much I liked the story. I liked the themes, but not the characters. – Carrie
• This book was slow for me to fully commit to at first. Not that I didn’t enjoy it but I wasn’t sure I would emotionally commit, but I ended up committed and loved it.  – Chelsea
• I listened to this one and I became engrossed right away. The reader, Adjoa Andoh brought so much to it by changing her voice and cadence for each of the different characters. The perspectives and story still have me thinking about the African American experience contrasted with Africans visiting or immigrating to America and how different their paths and social outlook are. – Danica
