This review is from: Sellout (Paperback)

Sellout, is a very good read. Author James W. Lewis takes you into the lives of interracial dating. Is Love really color blind? Are white woman out to steal all our good black men? Lewis touches on the families and their hang ups and sterotypes. Characters Penelope, Dedrick, Sheryl, Tammy and Terrell examines several aspects of the black men with white women and black women with white men. This book has Drama, Hope and Healing. It will have readers wanting more. It is a terrific conversation piece. This novel will have extended and heated discussion. Job well done. SAVVY BOOK CLUB, President, Rose Wright.
