    • "I loved this book and didn't want it to end! Warm, endearing, enlightening, moving, funny...... You end up caring so much about the characters that it is a harsh return to reality when you finish the last page and say goodbye to them. "

    • "I loved this book. It showed how we are all individuals who should be treated exactly the same regardless of colour. It has true depth. I fell in love with the characters and loved the way the book was written. You felt as if you were part of the book. What a real eye opener to how it used to be, or unfortunately still is. Fantastic.
