Mixed is a hilarious must-read for anyone searching for the enchanting path to self-discovery. Angela Nissel’s precise account of living the mixed race experience not only hit home with me, but the journey is deliciously enlightening and heart-rending at the same time. It’s a journey well worth taking.”
