That discovery made me rethink about the book and what Jackie had to go through during the 1960s and 1970s. Her father left her, her siblings, and mother when Jackie was at a young age. Although she was young, she still remembers her father's smile and face. It's really incredible to read about someone's own life but in a very different context.
This book is not a memoir so if you don't like reading autobiographies and biographies, don't worry, it doesn't sound and read like one.
Throughout the book, Jackie continues to grow into a strong young woman who begins to understand what is happening in the African-American community. She begins to notice actions and signs she did not notice before. The character development of this book is probably one of the very best. Jackie learns that the world isn't perfect and I really connect to that.
