I was not sure if I was only to read this book, but after reading some excerpts I decided that I would enjoy this story. I was pleasantly surprised how much I did enjoy this story. It was a quick entertaining read with serious undertones of the directions of society in the times of President Obama. This is a wonderful book discussion book because of all of the themes running through the story, that there is something in here for everyone. While reading this book, I found myself shaking my head in agreement with the many of the characters and their thoughts on - struggle, freedom, marriage, being independent, and remembering about folks who also smile up in your face. This book is a reminder that each one of us is responsible for ourselves and our community as a whole.

Corliss I agree, this would be a great discussion for a book club. The book was a sleeper. I did not think I would like it and then I could not put it down.
