Never have I felt a stirring of emotion— good emotion, tragic emotion for a White Supremacist- Ever, until I read Tiana Laveen’s the N Word.
That is just the first thing I love about the book.
The second is her great knowledge of history and psychology and the dynamics of long distance relationships and yes, the sexy tidbits as well.
So, the story is about Aaron Pike, a white guy with a lot of pride in his culture doing time for beating a black man into a coma and now he has to see a counselor and explore all of his demons. And believe me; Aaron has a lot of demons.
This dude’s mind is scarier than his actions. Trust me.
Meanwhile, the beautiful Mia Armstrong, teacher and volunteer at the prison decides to do the unthinkable: Make contact through letters with Aaron Pike, not truly knowing who he is and he not knowing who she is.
He does not know she is black.
But through their correspondence, it opens up a dam of pain, of anger, of possibilities…and it is those possibilities that keep you on the edge of your seat. The sizzling letters Aaron and Mia send each other. The subtle mind assassination they give each other, the poems…
I am so in love with this book and wish to tell more because this book is deep. It is about more than two people getting to know each other through one of the oldest forms of communication.
It begs the question:
Who are we really?
I will be reviewing Book 2: Word of Honor, really soon!
