    Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl, prays every day for beauty. Mocked by other children for the dark skin, curly hair, and brown eyes that set her apart, she yearns for the blond hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to finally fit in. Yet as her dream grows more fervent, her life slowly starts to disintegrate in the face of adversity and strife.

    Linda says: "Frustrating..."
    "Terrible Abridgement"
    Overall

    While the pieces that are there are great. The abridged version has missing pieces that are elemental to having a full grasp of the beauty of this important book.
