If I had one word to describe Beck it would be insightful . It's baffling to think that racism was so strong and evil in that time period when being brought up in a peaceful and equal society . This book shows the journey of a young mixed rave boy Beck who was dealt probably the toughest hand in life . Having lost his family at such a young age, he has to learn how to survive himself. It also shows the spiteful views many people had on mixed race people in society. However, I do feel the ending was a bit rushed for the build up of the book . The true message that lies inside this book is very powerful and definitely worth a read to understand what life was like before us.
