"Mama's Child" is a story that transcends to readers of all ages. As you would have guessed, the story of a biracial young girl named Ruby and her struggles to find her place in the world.
I was especially touched with many of the themes presented in this book because it's common things that everyone experiences in their lives: family conflicts and relationships[e.g. for Ruby the divorce of her parents and split of her family], feeling inferior to others and wanting acceptance, and also finding yourself.
I found myself really engrossed with Ruby's plight throughout the entire novel and was captivated from how all of these feelings and experiences cultivate into making her the self-confident person she is years from then.
Over all, "Mama's Child" is a definite read you readers should pick up!
