Ooof. This was a heavy, heavy book.
Pecola is poor, black, and friendless. She suffers abuse, incest, racism, etc. Very graphic, very violent, very disturbing book.
I can't criticise it without sounding vile, so let me just say that it was not a book I enjoyed, and if you are like me at all, awful things stay in your head long after you read it, and I just really don't want that.
