it was amazing
Read in May, 2009

Picked this up in the new section of the library. Beautifully written - an absolute treat to read because of the fine writing! This author is great with her descriptions using metaphors... "Like the fall of a theater curtain on the last act, dusk dropped onto the blue hole..."and in infusing the sarcasm of a teenager in the voice of the narrator (Momma made certain everyone in her path felf affirmed at all times, even if she had to perjure herself to do it...) It is a story of racial tension in late 70's in the south, (but dealing with a Muslim family instead of a black one.) I loved it! Told through the eyes of teenagers that are more accepting than their parents.
