LOVED THIS BOOK! I almost passed up reading it and am so glad I sat down to give it a try! Fell in love almost instantly!

So there's the charm of nostalgia, for me.

Memoir of growing up in Jim Crow South (Mobile, AL) is an intimate poem of childhood delights and adolescent discovery against a gently told backdrop of poverty, injustice and anger. But the march for freedom had begun, and rebellious Cat was “full of wonder and magic, piss and vinegar.” Prejudice doesn't sit well with Cat, civil rights leaders are inspiring, and she hears the call of the north. An excellent introductory story before tackling The Warmth of Other Suns.

This book wasn't really my type of book. The plot was OK, but it didn't really grab my attention. The same goes for the writing style. I found it to be clunky in places, but, overall, it was OK. I also found some sections to be too informal, almost like it was transcribed from a recording. However, I did like the concept of the story...the first person historical narrative. That was neat.
