Default A Hope in the Unseen

I have to read this book for my MOI class...it's about a black kid and his journey through high school and his first 2 years at Brown University....it was on the New York Times Book Review and this book is so bad...

i'm not bigoted, but in this book, i more or less got the impression that here is this poor kid that no matter what he does, someone is always in his way and this poor kid can never get ahead...maybe that was the impression that the author wanted to give, but he more or less hammered this into me with this issue...

i really wanted to yell at that kid to get out of his little 'pity party' and realize that the world doesn't revolve around him and his problems...
