Hagerman's qualitative study of white upper-middle class families and how they engage or disengage from their white privilege comes across as earnest and thought provoking in Tavia Gilbert's well-balanced narration. Gilbert's pacing and emphasis enhance Hagerman's cultural context and critical insight so that even listeners unfamiliar with white privilege and how it operates can make sense of what Hagerman is finding in her study. Gilbert create distinct voices for the quotes from parents and children that make it clear that these deviations from Hagerman's narrative. In total, her narration will make Hagerman's prose all the more palpable and useful to parents who are trying to navigate their children's experiences of privilege and racial identity in American society.
