Wayne Casey’s historical novel is truly a fascinating novel to read. His book, Breaking In, gives readers an insider’s sense of what really happened, how and why. I found his novel unique. He actually experienced the segregation of blacks and whites in schools. He was the first one in his family to break the segregation. He attended an all-white school and succeeded with every new step he took on. Breaking In is an inspiring novel for those who lived and went through the terrible segregation occurring within schools and everywhere else. His book took place during a time when the government ruled that segregation was unequal and the every slow wait for segregation of blacks and white to end. This book is a must read and details the author’s own experience during these hard times. I would recommend others to read Wayne Casey’s book. I rate his novel a 5 out of 5 stars!
