I thought the book was incredible. It opened my eyes to a whole new world. Ruth is an outstanding woman and mother. She is a role model to all those who suffer through racism and abuse.

Quique El Loco (10/09/02)

This is an amazing book. I loved every page, every word, from the front cover to the back cover. Im not the type of person who you can say "reads for fun" I read this book in class, I finisged it in three days. Thats how great it is. Now im getting more and more into reading for fun.

ITS BOOKS LIKE THESE THAT MAKE PEOPLE REALLY READ FOR FUN!!!

It is the most extraordinary book that I have read for a while it took me the whole
of 2 days to read and I had to read it again. Could not put it down.

Keep up the good writing

Best Wishes
