Bittersweet and also inspirational.
Jenny Wingfield is quite the storyteller.
Her characters are so believable and real.

I absolutely despised Ras, and actually felt like I might vomit a few times from the things he did.
I really am surprised more investigating was not done. I kept worrying about his other children and his wife.
And Bernice...she was another one that needed to

I loved Swan, and Blade too. My heart broke for that little boy.
When Swan told him..."your Daddy may be who you're from, but he is not who you are.. I love who you are Blade."

Just very real characters portrayed in this novel.

Last page:

And that's the way things have gone along from that day until this.
Not Staying the same, but always changing. And that's okay, because once one part of a thing changes, all the other pieces begin to shift, and pretty soon it's a whole new story.
