      I loved this book my english teacher told us to read it and I'm really glad she did because it was so interesting. It shows racism from a different perspective and I think everyone could get something from reading this.

        I'm half way through the book and I can honestly say that this book is very advanced. There is a very big contrast between this book and all the other books I've read. But I guess if you're looking for challenge, you need to read this book.

          I didn't really like this book it was addicting but is wasn't that good. It is about segregation but instead of the whites being higher class it is switched.

            That is why the book is interesting.
