Alex’s parents made me cringe just about every time they appear in the book. Alex’s parents seem clueless and insensitive about adoption in general, but especially transracial adoption. They think sixteen year old Alex isn’t old enough to know anything about her adoption, and they are genuinely insulted that she is curious about how she came to be their daughter. The book discusses the complexities of transracial adoption, the pressure parents put on their children, and how people are perceived vs. how they see themselves.
