COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Ok submitted by Mightymoth on June 18, 2017, 4:18pm I expected more. Okay but doesn't really get to the interesting issues of diversity that appear within the book.

Gorgeous, and classic. submitted by lisa on July 24, 2022, 5:38pm Not every work needs to address "diversity" directly, broadly, etc. The mere act of representing the reality and lives of oppressed people is an assertion. A political act.
