Since this is the first book I've read by this author, I can't compare it to her other work. I found it to be somewhat superficial, but still interesting. What I got from the book is that you can't tell who is a real American by looking at the color of their skin, where they born, or who their parents were. The Wrath group headed by Vern Ostergard seems to want to save America for the Americans, but who is that? Being an American is loving our freedom, not abusing it, knowing that each of us has a talent and something to give no matter who we are or where we came from. The first part of the book with the history of the immigrants and the Native American pointed like an arrow for me to the conflict of the racist group. In the end, the real Americans are people like the character Charlie who is willing to risk his life for our country and Lauren who bravely confronts the task of reporting on this situation to protect our freedoms through the freedom of the press. While this isn't the greatest quality novel that one can read, it is interesting and thought provoking enough to spend some time with "Red, White & Blue." Enjoy!
