Great book. slow moving at first, but it brings home the point that issues of 60 years ago are still relevant today. If you dislike prejudice, or want to understand unrequited love of a different sort, or have to do a school report on segregation, this is your book. It's too bad the main mural is not real. Or was it? Grab this one only if you can handle a book that makes you think. Readers, thrilled and disappointed alike, encouraged to reply!
