I appreciated the author's candid telling of her story, as well as the support of her family in her doing so. Couldn't put it down. Helpful insight into the subtle and not so subtle challenges of growing up black in a predominately white community. Enjoyed picturing the scenes she described of Palos Verdes locations. A special book!
