I just finished reading a book that I think every child in America should be required to read.
A Thousand Never Evers
by Shana Burg
This book is about a young black girl in Mississippi in 1963 and the hardships her family goes through due to racism.
If you enjoyed To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee then you will love this book.
Me loving this book is kind of scandalous.
My family is very Southern.
But since when have I ever fit into the norm?
I broke out of the Southern stereotype by joining the LDS church.
Then I broke it by enjoying a book that sympathizes with black people.
I've even since dropped the accent.
My white supremacist ancestors would be so ashamed.
I'm more than okay with that.
