Birdie/Jesse tries to find her niche in this new world of eye shadow and gossip and boys, but she also wants to remain true to herself and find a common ground between her white and black heritage. She sets out to find her sister and reconnect with that part of her that has been lost for so long; the search takes her far from the settled, safe life she had in New Hampshire to a far more ambiguous, and unsettled, existence, one in which her own definitions of herself become muddled, and her search for her sister leads ultimately to a search for her own true identity. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This story is both exquisitely written and compelling.
This excellent novel provides insight into issues of race and biracialism, of particular interest in this presidential election.
This book was recommended to me for a good read, at first I couldn't get into it, but then it became very interesting.
I liked Caucasia a lot. It worked particularly well to follow The Glass Castle in our book group--interesting parallels. I am excited to hear the discussion in a couple weeks.Published 1 month ago by S. McCracken

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. While the ending wasn't quite what I think I wanted (I could've used a little more), it was an appropriate ending for a fantastic story. Read morePublished 10 months ago by La Shaun Kotaran
