Read this!!!

This book. I am in awe. Please, please, please read this book. It feels like a slice of my soul has been carved out and put on paper. Every emotion I’ve felt as an adoptee raised in a white dominated hometown has been validated. The triggers, the people and most importantly the inner monologue. This book has given my inner child room to heal and change. It paints the picture I know all too well, being surrounded by people who don’t look like you, by people who would rather praise you for your white attributes than your asian ones. I have struggled for so long on controlling my reactions, words, and bias. This book has given me the opportunity to find peace with myself and those around me, and for that I am grateful. —lena
