Beck Valley Books reviews “We’re Not All the Same, But We’re Family”

Sharon Martin, of Beck Valley Books writes:

We’re All Not the Same, But We’re Still Family: An Adoption and Birth Family Story is an excellent story which depicts the story of Deshaun and how he has a lot of questions about being adopted. Why was he given up for adoption? Who are his real parents? How will he cope when he meets or locate his real parents?

With the support of his adopted parents Deshaun goes on a discovery to find his real dad and once they find him it tells the story of how the relationship is rebuilt, the fears Deshaun has and the positive reassurance he receives from his adopted parents.

The drawings and easy to read narrative explains what every adopted person will feel at some point in their life in searching for their true identity. The story ends on a high note with Deshaun not only finding his dad but also finds he has an extended family who readily accept him. 

A well written book for a personal point of view which will help others understand adoption and the search to find out about their heritage

"In this innovative series, Sweta Srivastava Vikram re-appropriates
color. Cultures and mythologies collide along the way, and the result
is a chapbook that feels like a quest. In the end, the colors are a map
to identity. The child's pink tonsils or the bride's red sari are not
symbols, but rather mile markers. Like Vikram's poems, they lead
toward understanding"

--Erica Wright, Senior Poetry Editor, Guernica



About the Chapbook

The book delves into the implication and philosophy of colors from
a Hindu woman's point of view, from birth until death. The color she
adorns herself with almost depicts the story of her life. Expressed
through different poetic and verbal forms, each color in the book
has its own tone and is specific to different age groups.
