Biracial Obama was first raised by the Anglo part of his family then entered and lived African-American in early adulthood. He is able to view social dynamics from many perspectives. By revealing his journey in such a compelling manner, he helps the listener consider our American society from its good and its bad sides. This is a great listen.
This story placed me beside Carrie Whitmore on her emotional roller coaster ride. I don't have any personal experience loving or mothering a person with mental illness (yet) but this was reminiscent enough of living through any child's teenage/young adult years.
I rated 4 instead of 5 because the narrator's pitch got annoying from time to time, and the writing is more telling then describing which I prefer.
