  1. 3.5 StarsThis alternate history tale, where whites are in the minority, brings to life some of the issues of discrimination and social injustice experienced by minorities every day It is a unique view of a world turned on its head, smoothly written and an easy read Themes of bullying and interracial teen love provide a thought provoking backdrop The ending was a bit abrupt and I would have liked emotional depth in the main characters, maybe a bit story complexity Overall, a fun and entertainin [...]


  2. Where might society be today if history had taken a right turn instead of a left At the core of this entertaining story lies a difficult social issue I admit, it was often hard for me to keep myself oriented within this alternative world and the reversed stereotypes presented within these pages Perhaps if the author had delved a little deeper into the events which twisted history as we know it into the world in which Ann lives, I might have been easily grounded But what wasn t hard was to grasp [...]


  3. Provides food for thoughtThe author has created a compelling work of fiction well rooted in our modern society Given the current racial climate in the US, this is an interesting book that inverts the situation in an attempt to have the reader view things from the other side I would say that the attempt is mostly successful While I am not convinced that things are as bad today as the book describes it is thought provoking and I am glad I read it.

  5. I cried Twice And I read this in one sitting.Ms Turner has taken a basic concept that is unfortunately very real even today, and turned it around to excellent effect Having grown up a white female in a predominantly black and Hispanic society Miami , echoes of my childhood came through in the very believable and engaging characters within this book It flowed well, had great plot structure, and was well edited Ann is the protagonist Her insecurities, fears, and determination was poignant Her disc [...]


  6. Cracker is a story about a might be society , in which roles of who belongs to the minority and who to majority are reversed It is the story about a young white girl on highschool and I think recognizable for adolescents, white and black, gay or straight, rich or poor.It is a rather successful attempt to discussing these difficult themes Maybe Jacci should dig deeper for I think racism is not only about colour And causes of other social problems are complicated than the story tells us But I am [...]


  7. This story takes up the challenges of being a new kid at a new high school and dealing with being bullying Ann is the main character in this were she share her challenges of trying to fit in at new high school She is being bully, and then she gets help from an unexpected source who has a secret of his own We are taken on Anne, journey of self discovery and to this alternative world , history, where everything is turned upside down and Ann has to decide if she is ready to take a stand against inj [...]


  8. Oh my the book Cracker at first when I won it was like I am not sure if I am even gonna love this book Oh boy I not only loved it but I couldn t stop reading it until it was finished This is HUGE MUST READ BOOK Bullying is something I have always hated and is something I have seen and even been through Bullying is bad in general and it hurts But being hated for being born different color race is sad It was not just the bullying in school it was even the trying to make a change part I hope that t [...]


  9. This is normally not the kind of book I would pick up and read for my self but it s the kind of book I should pick up and read sometimes It is very interesting seeing the black and white difference switched, if something happened differently this could have happened and it opened my eyes a little onto how people are treated and how somethings that I don t ever think about some one thinks about a lot like what texture their hair is or who they can or can t date is I really enjoyed this book and [...]


  10. This was an interesting book Growing up I didn t face the same world that my parents grew up in When my youngest sister came home from grade school 20 years ago saying she wad going to marry her friend who was a different race we said okay She saw no color difference This book made me stop and think I think we still have some work to do when it comes to bullying I received my copy of this book from We love YA Books


  11. This book is challenging It s an easy read but the topic makes you face racial injustice in ways you hadn t thought about before But I really liked that How do I know what I m wrong about when I m blind to it in the first place I think in this day and age this book could be a really good tool to bring into schools to just get the conversation started.


  12. This is a bold book to write.Author Jacci Turner takes our world and flips it around creating an America where black people hold the power and white people are the minority experiencing daily prejudice and disadvantage.The author herself admits that it was scary to write and that she was wary of making the conversation about race worse rather than better.Aimed at a young adult audience, the story follows Ann, a young white woman as she joins a new school.In this world, the white population was d [...]
