"Generational Curses" is a novel that unfortunately a lot of young African American males and females will be able to relate to.

A very good read...disappointed with the ending so hopefully there's a part two.
As a parent, I can relate to this book. Good parents want the best for their kids. Cynthia's mother was no different. I don't want to spoil the story, so I'll just say that the characters were well developed and the story was believable. I'm originally from Beaufort, SC so I could relate to the Savannah, GA references.
