Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye is a story about a young black girl in 1940s Ohio. Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse. She blames her dark skin and prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow.
Enthralling, gorgeously written, and incredibly emotional, The Bluest Eye is an American touchstone.
