This story will really make you think on what's really important: what you see or what you get. So often we judge by what we see in a lot of things, even people. We just take for granted that a person is on the inside what they portray on the outside; and in most causes, we're wrong. This story invites us into a family that has a strong family unity that starts to crumble because of "personal preferences". Like many families, standards are set and not every member can measure up to them. But is that a reason to isolate or humiliate? Reading this story really brings to light what a family is all about and also shows where the backbone of a family really lies...in the heart of those who purpose to stick together.

this book was very real. I could almost put myself in the room wih each scene. Once i started reading there was noway possible i could put it down. Every middle school should assigned this book as part of their curriculmn. Life itself is brought to life off the pages of Color Struck as it teaches you that their is such a thin line when it comes to prejudice. This book most definetly needs to be on every reader list and definetly apart of the Oprah book club by all means.

Color Struck is a wonderful book with a powerful message. Prejudice of any kind is horrible but within a family it can be devastating as in Color Struck. Not all families are so fortunate to have a Grandma Bell (loved her). I highly recommend this book to young adults and not so young adults. I'm looking forward to more great, heartwarming stories from the Tucks. A sequel?

Reading this book took me back into time. The authors did a great job of describing the characters and making you feel apart of the story. After reading the first chapter, I was hooked and could not put the book down. There were moments where I laughed and cried. The character Grandma Bell was a courageous woman and I will value the lessons learned in this book always.
