It Spoke to Me Feb 22, 2008
Disclaimer: I am personally aquainted with the author.
This was a phenomenal book. I was moved. I am not biracial, but rather bicultural, and suffer more because many look at my white face and standard American English and deny my primary culture. Again and again Sundee brought up points and ideas that I could viscerally relate to. I have experienced many of the same struggles, doubts, and sins (on my part) in response to a bicultural existance.
Sundee has an easy, honest manner of writing which connects immediately with the reader. She writes directly from her close relationship with Jesus, without pretense or preachiness, but simply from her understanding of reality. She speaks with amazing openness about her difficulties being biracial and bicultural, and the profound joy and hope that brings her as well. Throughout she weaves this into the hope set before us in Jesus Christ, and how his Kingdom ideals are intertwined into an emerging polycultural world.
Copiously foot-noted yet not oppressively so, this is a how-to manual of spiritual enlightenment. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who is biracial or bicultural. And even if you are not Christian, there is much here in the personal struggles and realizations of others like yourself that may prove greatly beneficial. Considering what's in this book, I am truly shocked that it doesn't have greater renown.

The religious stories and references to religion woven throughout the book got in the way of Sundee telling about her personal journey to find herself and acceptance from others. After reading the book, I was not convinced she felt successful.

Great Book!! Bought it for my 26 year old son who is struggling with his black/white identity. Lot's of insight into every possible problem that comes from being interracial. Your not alone rings clear.
Straight talk that is honest & insightful Sep 25, 2006
I'll check one box when it comes to this book: oustanding. As the mom of multiiracial children this book has given me insight to relate to how my kids might be feeling. And I enjoy how Frazier connects it all to faith. How can one's identity not have this connection if one believes in a Creator? I recommend this to all mulitracial people -- and everyone, for that matter. Our world grows more multiracial every day. We need to understand each other.

The problem here is that people are born whole and they shouldn't have to find 'wholeness'. The problem is that books like this actually reinforce a feeling of being different by trying to make everyone want to fit into some racial category rather then helping people just feel like Americans and forget race. What this book fails to mention is that race is not a defining factor in life, rather it is an insignificant item that does little to make one who one is. Class and values are for more determinant.
