    Kindle american history.co ¸ Mean PDF ´ mean kindle, Mean KindleThere are parts of this book that I read aloud to my eight year old so we could laugh at how kids can be or how school can be or how teachers can be or how white people can be There are parts that I read to my husband so I could see his eyebrows raise and hear him say damn as in damn that's good writing or damn that'd be a good piece to study with our students or damn that's some dark tale telling right there And there are parts that I believe only Gurba could probably read aloud the parts I feel like she read just to me in this uniuesmartwickedendearing voice I don't know if I am doing a good job reviewing her work but I think people should read Mean because it's very very good

    Kindle american history.co ¸ Mean PDF ´ mean kindle, Mean KindleI can’t at all recommend this bookI unfortunately looked up the author before reading it and already had a bad taste in my mouthIve only made it halfway through and it’s been a tortuous 87 and a half pages of dreckFrom what I’ve gathered this is essentially a book written by an overly aggressive woman who’s experienced minor bouts of racism in her life and decided to project it into 174 pages of exaggerations The authors voice comes off as “I know everything my opinion is right and everyone else is wrong” and uite frankly I found myself rolling my eyes at almost every single pageLike I said I’ve only made it through half

    Kindle american history.co ¸ Mean PDF ´ mean kindle, Mean KindleThis is a story about surviving rape that is not about recovery but rather about the uotidian haunting of trauma Gurba’s prose is cutting and precise sharp and painful in ways that make you want to slice deeper just to relish the sensation across wounded flesh Every sentence a thorn studded bloodied bloom of language Gurba writes all the tortured and ugly feelings of Mexican girlhood without any of the sappy redemption “Disobedience made her glow It was better than makeup” This novel is stunning I devoured it in a single day
