Good Read

It is a great book although The author suffered some tough misfortunes and there are some racial slurs used we should not hide these kind of books from our children it is a true account of history. If we put all of our children in bubbles because and not allow them to learn about the truth that went on in this country and how people of color suffered is ridiculous yes it is a harsh approach but nonetheless it is truth. I am sure they can witness more atrocities on world of Warcraft or modern warfare popular video games directed at killing and murder. Parents let your kids read this book, let them learn and expand there minds.
