about the world I grew up in Cajun Chameleon brought to life how Louisiana grappled with the civil rights movement by telling the story through the eyes of Jax Badeaux, a young man who seems so real, I had to keep reminding myself I was reading a novel Jax watches his world change as people around him are forced to accept integration in all areas of life, something he himself doesn t have a problem with He is a remarkably intelligent and compassionate boy and man, who can see inside of people to who they truly are Now, as this is the story of a southern teenager growing up in the 60 s, he has his share of wild times, drinking and falling for the wrong girls His college days are lackluster He is there only to avoid being drafted He slides from college to a career as a cop In fact, he spends years sliding The reader waits for Jax to get his wake up call He doesn t ever get one He gets lots He is a slow learner, I guess But, eventually, he comes to his senses It makes me wonder how much of this book was based on people the author knew in his own life.A good read.I received this book free from the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review flag 3 likesLike see review
