My review of ‘Mixed Up’ by Tineka Smith and Alex Court

So, when she moved to the UK – and fell in love with Alex Court, a white man – she wondered if things might be different.

When Alex proposed to Tineka, it was the easiest decision in the world. What he didn’t anticipate was the reaction – sometimes subtle, sometimes overt – from friends and strangers alike. Nor did he expect to have to think about Tineka’s race, and his own white privilege, every single day.
