I read this book because my son read it as a history class assignment....and I was curious. He didn't like it, I did. This is a well written story. The poignancy and characters are believable; it is 'real life' not a story to be tied up neatly at the end...and that made it a tough book for me to read. I wish I had read this book as part of a book club - I would have loved to discuss the issues with others. As an adult in today's society I know of the turbulent 60's; However, I witnessed none of the turbulence or struggles that went on. But I was able to recognize the era and relate to the book's characters and their struggles. It was not an easy book to read - however, I am glad to have read the story and think that this book needs to be read by everyone at least once. I keep good books, to read again and again...I've kept this book knowing that someday I will be able to face the realities again and learn more the second time around. I would definitely recommend this book to book clubs! ( )
