This book is about a little girl name Trina who visits North Carolina for the summer with "Big Mama" and granddad before their family reunion. It is related to my topic because african american families are depicted. The genre is Family. Not too hard to follow for children because of the simple word usage in it. However, the pictures in the book could make it a little uneasy because they are pretty dull and bland.
