The Way It Is by Donalda Reid

Reid, Donalda The Way It Is, pgs. 279 Second Story Press, 2010. $11.95. Language PG13 (9 swears, 1 "F"), Sexual Content PG; Violence PG; It is really true that a girl can become and a doctor and a boy of Indian heritage can do anything he wants to do? In the 1960's it's questionable.  This is a great story of how Ellen and Tony learn to accept each other and overcome the sexist and raciest people around them. It's a sweet story with a shocking ending and lots of twist and turns. I really enjoyed this book. It builds great suspense and had a great ending. It gave me a great perspective of how things were in the 60's. MS, HS - OPTIONAL. Student Reviewer: KU
