ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY: A short gem of a book about an unconventional woman who just didn't fit society's expectations of normal.
"There were two types of prejudiced people--those who had a deep-rooted urge for prejudice and those who unthinkingly repeated a barrage of slurs they'd heard somewhere."
"I decided to keep my mouth shut as best as I could outside home. I would no longer do anything of my own accord, and would either just mimic what everyone else was doing, or simply follow instructions."
" When something was strange, everyone thought they had the right to come stomping in all over your life to figure out why. I found that arrogant and infuriating, not to mention a pain in the neck. Sometimes I even wanted to shut them with a shovel to shut them up, like I did that time in elementary school."
QUESTION --- Can anyone PLEASE name any other books with quirky characters like Keiko?
