What can I really say about this book? I loved literally every word of it.
This book, I found, plays with your emotions. Later on in the book, you meet Linda, who is a white segregationist. She is put with Sarah through a French assignment, and I found myself being subject to a whirlwind of toil as you decide who to side with, because Linda’s right but she’s against integration. I can only describe it as a bitter sweet pleasure. Not since any John Green novel has any book done that for me.
This is a cleverly written book as the topic of integration is one that is feared by many to be written about. I often write about how sad it is that all I tend to see in bookshops today is dystopia (though it remains one of my favourite genres) and romance. Seeing Lies We Tell Ourselves is a fresh sight for sore eyes. It’s great to see this issue covered in a way that’s captivating and entertaining to read and still, bear in mind, have trouble cubed in this book.
I completely recommend you read this book, like, right now. Please, and I promise you that you won’t regret it.
