In the hopes that these reviews do eventually reach publishers, I have a complaint and request:
Kindle's lending capabilities are, in general, limited, but this book cannot be lent at all. My and the other reviews on this page are clear testimonials to this book's power to do more than entertain. In such instances, and particularly when a book's primary audience may lack material resources (as is the case with many racial minorities), the inability to lend a book is incredibly frustrating.
I have multiple friends without access to this book in a library, but who have responsibilities and needs that do not allow them to spend $12 on pleasure reading. In most cases, they can move on, choose another book. In this case, however, there aren't other books. Many mixed race/culture individuals have VERY FEW opportunities to consume media in which they are represented, much less media that provides a variety of different personal perspectives on a common experience. This is the only anthology I have found with an ebook available: PLEASE enable lending so that I can share it with others who need to read it!
