One of the few white kids in a rural Kentucky town, Logan Whyte always kept to his own kind out of self-preservation. He never considered himself racist, but that didn’t stop him from falling in with the wrong crowd that celebrated hate as much as he fought it - or from ending up in prison for eight years on an armed robbery charge.

A successful and educated black woman, Katie Andreassen is tired of being accused of betraying her own race. Her lonely isolation, coupled with her grief over losing her mother, inspire her to create a new pen pal program at Capshaw State Penitentiary, where her father is a warden.

The program brings together the unlikely pair, but Logan and Katie soon find themselves forced to overcome past fears and prejudices. Their friendship doesn’t come easily - threatened by a crooked lawyer with a grudge and a best friend who betrays her promise to help.

When faced with a world that forces them apart, Logan and Katie must show everyone else what they have discovered: that love is, in fact, colorblind.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
Such a beautiful piece of work. I cannot believe how engrossed I was with this novel. At first, I thought I'd be completely turned off, but Inger Iversen did such a phenomenal job with this story. I love the interracial relationship and how it was too dramatic, I love the characters and storyline.

Logan Whyte was an extremely ignorant guy. I understand he had gone through some things and learned other things (as crazy as they were), but he was just too much of arse for me. There were few times I liked him, but then when he went back to being his racist self, I felt bothered by his character. He was written in a way that as much as I hated him, I still felt for him and wanted him to come to terms and just get over his behavior. All in all, Logan needs to hash his younger years, leave them behind him and be a true man of integrity and not one of an 10 year old boys feelings.

Katie was just a girl of roller coaster emotions. Not feeling as if she was black enough because her step dad is white and her mom is dead. She has only one friend, Teal and between her and the step dad she never really got to experience much in her life on her own accord. She is the outsider of black people which totally sucked.

The relationship between Logan and Katie was awesome up until race became an issue. I adore how this book teaches that love is color blind and based on emotions from the heart. The hear can't see color, only emotions and words. Truly profound.

All the side characters added to the perfection of this novel. Overall, I enjoyed this beauty and definitely will check out more from this author.

About the Author

Inger Iversen lives in Virginia Beach with her tree-hugging boyfriend, Joshua and her overweight lap cat, Max. When not reading or writing she spends her time watching reruns of True Blood, Walking Dead or killing zombies in Call Of Duty. Of course, if the world were to change into some World War Z type situation, she’d probably be the only chick running around searching for a Ray Gun!
