Incredibly moving and well told. Somehow it manages to be both absolutely devastating but also inspiring. Not only do I want to work towards a better future for all people, I have to remember that there is just so much hurt from the past that must be felt and acknowledged so that it can hopefully one day be healed.

Second half is better than the first half, which reminded me of a very tame version of [b:Half-broke Horses|6366437|Half Broke Horses|Jeannette Walls|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348507420s/6366437.jpg|6553801]. (Very tame version.) However, I still felt it was bits of many other books I've read in the past; I can't say it told me a whole lot I hadn't read before. Perhaps the role of African-Americans in WWII, but that's about it. Florence was my favourite character, but she did not get enough "air time." In general, characters were flat or typical; nothing surprising.
But why the tongue?
