This was a wonderful story, covering multiple topics and a long period of time. Each of the family members gets to speak up, which I loved.
I was a little disappointed that several of the events were only briefly touched upon, such as Tulsa Race Massacre and 9-11. I realize that these were important events and weren’t the main focus of the story, though. People who want more information can look up the events.
The story hit several heavy topics – teen pregnancy, classism, LGBT issues. It was a great story that I would recommend.
