I don't know if I could think of a better book to keep in a classroom, especially in today's high schools. Race is a card often played, rarely understood, and hotly contested. The raw truth and honesty in the stories in Under Her Skin will get to just about anyone and everyone - no matter what race they consider themselves to be - will find something to identify with.
After all, we've all felt left out, right? We've all had moments of doubt, of disbelief, of confusion.
For me, the stories from Asians were particularly poignant - being half-Chinese and having lived for a brief time in Mississippi (where our family was the only remotely ethnic family for three counties), I can definitely relate. Perhaps those middle states in the U.S. are the places where this book would be most useful.
Recommended for readers of all ages, especially women, but also anyone searching for a little truth in their life. Definitely recommended for classroom use--use the stories together or singly.
