This collection of short excerpts from memoirs tells a tale of not just one culture, but many, and how each faced a different kind of prejudice or barrier. From being a minority at the prestige Boston Latin School for Boys, to being the daughter of a holocaust survivor in America. Each story, each author, has his own view of the culture in this country they face, it truly shows the diversity and prejudice that happens here everyday. The reason I chose to read this book is because it was stories from American youth, which is something many others and I can relate to. I think American culture is interesting because it is the children of all the older countries coming together and forming a whole new culture. This book did a great job at giving a glimpse to the reader of many different views and perspectives of an American.
