Summary

After enduring two broken marriages, a failed suicide attempt, and adulterous affairs, author R. Renee Amaro sets out to discover the true purpose of her life. In August 2000, she pulls up roots in America and spreads her wings across five continents-from Africa to Asia and Europe to Australia.Odd Woman Out: Black Girl Abroad is a fish-out-of-water tale about life outside of the United States as experienced by an African American woman, specifically in Taiwan where Amaro teaches English as a second language. During her adaptation to her new life and her new self, Amaro rises and falls several times but is continually able to pick up the pieces and move on. Through self-love, determination, and a long walk with God, Amaro overcomes her past life of promiscuity, adultery, self-hatred, and fear.From dancing with Zulu warriors and sitting in the prison cell of Nelson Mandela to living, loving, and learning in Taiwan, Odd Woman Out will stimulate thought, provoke change, and challenge the status quo in the minds of individuals-especially young African Americans.
