Read full description of the books Come a Stranger:I am going to be sad when the Tillerman cycle is done. Mina is such a fun character and I loved getting to know her and her family more. I don't know what those of African American background would think, but I remember reading this as a girl and wanting to do anything I could to fight racial inequality. One of the things I love about quality literature-good themes really shape your character and beliefs. I also love that not much happens in these books in way of action, but I still find them page turners. I love the depth of character development.
I seriously did not remember Tamer Shipp being in this! Interesting to see the few bits that stuck with me. It was a pleasant surprise. My one frustration was that I didn't like seeing that Mina had ulterior motives for befriending Dicey! I also am curious to see if anything happens with Dexter, who was added in the last few pages.
