    1. what i Learned so far is, to accept yourself for who you are and if you can t then have someone show you how to except you for you.



    2. I almost didn t read this because I disliked its predecessor so much, but it was the last book in my library stack and it s not about twelve year olds It was a substantial improvement, anyway, although many of the fundamental flaws are still there.The characters are still pretty much one dimensional, although they re not quite as cardboard cutout as in the previous book And make no mistake, this is a sequel it s just the next five years of the same character s life Since it s set in San Francisc [...]


    3. I d give this book 3 1 2 stars if I could Not as great as the first book Coffee Will Make You Black though I thought it was still a good book Though this book is written in the same style, tone, and even has the same main character, it is definitely a completely different book While the first book is a coming of age story in 1960s Chicago, this one is of a coming out story in 1970 s SF While I thought it was a little too graphic at the time while reading it I definitely was not expecting that , [...]


    4. The title of this book made me smile because it reminds of somethng I would hear my mom say while she was chatting with her girlfriends back in the day As the sequel to Coffee Will Make You Black, I expected from this book It was okay, nothing spectacular It just left me wanting .


    5. I liked the book The first one Coffee will make you Black was a masterpiece.This one seemed to drag on at times However, I enjoyed her mother s character The author vividly painted a picture of her Overall, I enjoyed the journey Stevie took through San Francisco I also am proud of her for taking a chance and leaving her home state The author was a year off when she mentions Rocky coming out in 1975 I also applaud her for creating believable scenes that show the overt racism Especially the scene [...]


    6. Lesbian feminist circles in San Francisco in the 1970s Pretty amazing to read about Viewpoint character Stevie continues from Coffee Will Make You Black and discovers that she is in fact queer Also black, female, trying to get a job like everyone else in San Francisco I really like Stevie a lot her narration is great, she pulls no punches, and she seems like someone I d have liked to know And the cast of characters here is pretty interesting too oops, mixed up my book reviews, initially accident [...]



    7. April Sinclair is a great writer and has created a fantastic protagonist, Jean Stevie Stevenson Stevie graduates from college in the Midwest and decides to celebrate by visiting San Francisco While there, she becomes quickly fascinated by the idea that maybe her purpose isn t just to survive but to take a journey, find herself, self actualize She brings her down home, down to earth family inherited wisdom and combines that with new mind blowing Bay Area experiences, to find her own balanced, ope [...]


    8. In this sequel to Coffee Will Make You Black, we follow Stevie from college in small town Illinois to new adventures in 1970s San Francisco I think I enjoyed this one even than the first because Stevie has survived puberty and adolescence to struggle deeply with the issues and questions around race and racism, sexual identity, gender roles, stereotypes, and individuality Want a taste of Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco in 1975 through the eyes of a sweet, intelligent protagonist who s just [...]


    9. Not as good as the predecessor One of the things I liked about Stevie in the first book was that she maintained a lot of her values, but in this book, we see her transform into using drugs I don t expect her to be the same person she was in high school, and I do believe that the first book left to be desired, but this wasn t it for me I just didn t relate to her as much as I did in the first book and overall didn t even like her character half as much.


    10. FROM JACKET Jean Stevie Stevenson is somewhat older and wiser, with some experience and a college degree diving headfirst into the hot tub, free love, yoga, and vegetarian lifestyle of 1970s San Francisco In this liberating new world of raised conciousness, mind expansion, and disco dancing, a soul sister with passion and daring has room to experiment with life and love to find out who she really is.


    11. I read this as part of a book club for a class on student development theory and it serves as a nice example of a person discovery and growing into their own ever evolving identity Clear, entertaining writing, and great depictions of San Francisco in the 1970s However, if you listen to the audio version of this book the voices are completely awful and it will shift the tone of the narrator entirely I don t recommend the audio version.


    12. i relly enjoy reading this book so far Steive the main cahracter in this book goes to coolege and meets new people who she bfreinds quicly mostly black and she has one white friend from paris who juat had an abortion they meat when they were about to fight each other and they ended up being goood friens tune in next tin me


    13. Easy read Both funny and thought provoking As others have mentioned, the depth of the story or ultimate decision on the lead character s sexuality left you wanting But definitely worth the read Leaves room for a wow factor in the follow up.


    14. love this author s writing she s hilarious, story line is great a follow up to Coffee will make you black , its a coming of age, self story about a young woman growing up and going off to university in the mid 70s and finding herself.


    15. The writing is better than the content Sinclair is writing about a young black woman s sexual awakening in mid 70 s San Francisco Stevie never does clearly establish in her own mind whether she s gay or bisexual or hetero but she has a broad variety of experiences on the road to finding out.


    16. I love this book so much that I reread it over and over I can relate to Stevie and envy Stevie in so many ways I love how free love and sexuality is expressed in Stevie She has a love for people and life that allows her to explore love that to society may have not been traditionally acceptable.




    17. Stevie is a character I really like Roots in Chicago moved to San Fran, time in college and then time in the lifestyle A good story with a crew of good characters and situations.


    18. The Version I read does not include Ain t Gonna Be the Same Fool Twice, but is listed as by the same author I enjoyed this book.
