Mijn zuster de negerin

Mijn zuster de negerin (My sister the nigger) is a book about slavery and the misbehaviors of slave owners which results in complicated relationships for his kids. This book I read in high school for my booklist. We had to read some books from writers of Curacao. And this book was one of the favorites when I was in school, because it was easy to read although the subject is heavy.
