Waiting for Regina is a heart-warming, beautiful and disconcertingly reflective book. The novel is composing from a short story written by the same author entitled, Regina, What Is the Color of It? Presenting as a long and eloquent letter from a friend, Mispha, a dark girl from a Haitian-Jamaican black family, writes to her close childhood companion. She is Regina whose "brown sugar" skin is a lighter shade. Both are in their teen years. This book is basing during the heydays of the latter 1980's. Racism, bullying, interracial marriage, abuse, and loss of life are just a few of the various themes treated and touched upon in this book. The publication is well written and gives a nostalgic and almost a warm feeling to it. While not exploiting those serious themes, this novel may become one of the most entertaining of the year with lively and varied characters, fluid pacing, and unforgettable dialogue. You won't regret the time spent reading it.

Sep 25, 2017I really really love this book "Waiting for Regina" and I must recommend this book to all friends because it really touched my heart. Honestly, before I'm very lazy reading story books but when I started reading this great book "Waiting for Regina" I was so surprised with the content in it. The book is 100% professionally edited with eye catchy font test. To be honest I really love this storybook. This novel makes me to lively flashbacks and relatable dialogues making it convincing and highly immersive. Although I can say that Regina is our eyes through this story, Mispha who is in secret the protagonist here. Mispha is Haitian-Jamaican while Regina’s skin has a lighter tone, and sometimes that is all that takes for there to be difference, and that’s the tragic magic in here. Highly Recommended book.
Sep 1, 2017Great book Waiting for Regina by Curtis W Jackson. Clеvеr writing... This novel is more than just a book we come across every day. This iѕ a muѕt rеаd for everyone...Thе bооk was very hеlрful аnd I dоn't regret rеаding it. Basically, this is very interesting and it's an eye catching story you would be interested in because the book kept my interest, because the whole story moved along quite well. I suspended everything I was doing to concentrate on this. The Author did a very great and awesome job because the style of writing was very clear and well understood. The story is very interesting and it gave me incredible insight into the world we're living in. I enjoyed this book and would love to read the whole book over and over. I read for the purpose of learning and I think I've learned from “Waiting for Regina”. The moment I started reading this story, I couldn't put it down...I'm so glad I took a chance on something with so few reviews and read this! What really surprised me most... More > about this novel is that I ignored all that I was doing to figure out where the whole story is going to end though he never disappointed me because he surpasses my expectation.< Less
