I finished this in a few hours, this isn't my usual read I prefer a good thriller but gave this a go anyway, it had some mild interest but reading it I had less and less, I am maybe not a 'target' reader I am a white woman in the UK I do not know or understand what it's like for black people anywhere in the world but I do understand the concept of 'asking/looking for trouble' (saying in the book 'no whites allowed' & having to get a pass code from a fellow black person is going to cause problems) the author skims over this making for a bland read. The character does not create a unique game for black players, she uses white peoples ideas & makes out they are hers & being hers it makes them uniquely black. Sadly it isn't very well written, goes in circles, the boyfriend is just as racist as a white person & honestly the girl not realising until the very end??? How he turned so nasty inviting violence upon her by others was harsh even for this book but nothing comes of it, really in the USA her photo is put up in the most racist country in the world & nothing happens to her the girl who invented a game just for black people? Yeah OK. She doesn't experience any back lash? What a cop out. Also the arrogance of the girl to honestly think no black person would ever give out a pass code to a white person for any reason weather they are BFF's or if they sell the information etc realllllly? It has a very bland safe ending it all works out well for her adding to the blandness and for me lack of reality to the story, not a genre I would pick up again anytime soon too safe, bland, had nothing to say & not original. Also for the author I did some homework LOTS of games have playable black characters not just ugly elves like your character believed maybe some homework on the market would have made a more believable argument, maybe a stronger book.
This review isn't about the book. Just got this book in the mail and it came STICKY! I'm highly upset about it. It looks like something spilled on it. I'm glad my other book wasn't sticky as well...This is my first time receiving an item that came this way.
