    An insightful story

    This book blew me away! I am a biracial teen girl(black/white) and can identify very strongly with the feelings the main character in this book has! At times, I felt like I was reading the pages of my own diary. I couldn't tear myself away from this incredible story. This book is a must have for anyone who has struggled to find their identity. This is my new favorite book! Ms. Senna, if you're out there...thank you...thank you!!

    New spin on old story...

    Ms. Senna has taken on themes such as mother-daughter,love/hate relationship and the meaning of color in America and spun them into something altogether her own. This beautifully written debut novel is deserving of a wide readership. This is a moving, involving story written with warmth and grace. Ms. Senna has given us book to treasure.

    Biracialism-the future of the world!

    Dansy Senna provides us with an insite of what the future will be! Biracialism is more and more common and will be what our future will hold. This book explores the feeings of a biracial child and gives an idea of what the feelings, problems and complexitities of biracialism are. It was great and very good reading.

    DEFINITE MUST READ

    As a multiracial female of black and white descent,I completly identify with Birdie's feelings of inadequacy as passing for anything except black. Her journey through the trials of growing up hit home and I was able to see my existence more clearly.

    Coming of Age, Set Perfectly in the 70's

    Finally a book that captures a time in America so quickly dismissed - the Integrationist 70's. Birdie is a teen woman, made wise beyond her years, by that political time. Artfully crafted. You can hear the Al Green music, see the post-60's interracial parents breaking down, and feel our heroine, Birdie, grasp for her identity. (This book caused me to reflect upon my own 70's experience, living my parent's noble vision for integration - bording the 6am bus for an hour's ride - facing issues of race, at 15, they could never know.) 'Caucasia' belongs, along with 'Catcher in the Rye' in the pantheon of coming-of-age novels.
