Shifting Life of a Movement Child

I was amazed on how honestly Rebecca felt about living with both parents separately. Her dad who is Jewish, and masking herself as a conserved Jewish white girl. Then shifting gears and living with her mom an African American, feminist, civil rights author who felt Rebecca should be independent and treated her like a sister more than a daughter. When Rebecca was with her mother she tried to be tough, independent Rebecca but doesn't really feel she belongs. She gets the same feeling growing up with her dad and trying to be something she is only half. In her youth she never really felt complete. Rebecca's up and downs of going to schools as the black and white girl affect her tremindously and shaped her to being the person she is today.

Although well written, this story is basically unappealing. Walker never comes across as someone who is really interesting in her own right. One rarely gets the feeling of her mixed "identities" as being in a creative tension, or as having a serious effect on the conduct of her life. Instead, she comes across as an indulged child of divorce, private schools and Yale - so what's new?

    Treble's Bio

    Hi! I suppose I should get on with it now. Allons-y! <p> Name: Treble. I don't use my last name unless I have to. If you really must know, just ask. (And BTW, it is NOT Clef.) <br> Gender: I AM A GIRL. DON'T YOU DARE CALL ME A BOY OR I WILL DO THE HONORS OF BASHING YOUR FACE IN. <br> Age: 427. I appear to be somewhere around the age of 14. I'll probably rub it in all of your faces if its my birthday XD <br> Appearance: Brown-black hair, violet eyes (yes I look somewhat Ender-like, haters gonna hate), pale skin. Thin, ish. I usually wear the Doctor's fantastical trench coat (he gave it to me, looong story), a white shirt with a collar, black leggings, Converse, a dark purple bow tie, a fez and black-rimmed, rectangular glasses. If not, it's usually a t-shirt and or something. I carry a silver bow and arrows sometimes. <br> Personality: I'm not quite sure. I just regenerated, after all. Talk to me and we might just find out. <br> Likes: The Doctor, Doctor Who, Minecraft, Anime, Doctor Who, caramel, cookies, caramel cookies, Doctor Who, music, peace, fish fingers and custard, Doctor Who, Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, etc. <br> Dislikes: One Direction (eeeuuurgh), Justin Bieber, Justin Timerlake (I'm sorry, Timberlake fans), kiddie stuff, war, the Master, the Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, the Silence, Judoon, Sontarans (except Strax), Slitheen, Vashta Nerada and other various Doctor Who monsters, etc. <br> History: I am a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey of the constellation Kasterborous. I am known to the Time Lords as the Musician, the Healer and the Archer. I fought in the Time War, then injured my leg and worked as the Healer. In the end, I fled with the Doctor. I regenerate when I am near death and change my appearance in the process, but I can only regenerate 12 times, which means 13 new faces. I am the Fifth Musician, the Fifth Healer, and the Fifth Archer. I travel time and space in my TARDIS, a living ship that is bigger on the inside. TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. If you are confused, just ask. I don't mind, not really.

    Truly Refreshing

    A wonderful read. Walker is funny and descriptive in her childhood experiences. Her writing style allows me to drift back with her as she recounts the styles and songs of the 80's. Her depiction of numerous addresses gives insight to her strength, maturity, and intellegence. For me this memoir was an autobiography of a 'found' self.
