This was a good book. I was about to be disappointed with Garcia after reading Jumped but after reading this book I think I'll give her another chance. This book was about this young African American girl named Gayle. She lived in New York City but then gets pregnant again(she already has a baby by a totally different guy) and her mother forces her to get an abortion. So then her mother sends Gayle down south to Georgia to where her brother, his wife and her friend, their daughter Cookie, and Great lives. Gayle is slow to adapt to the slow life of the south but eventually through befriending her cousin Cookie and listening to stories from the humorous dying Great, she learns to like living in the south. Awesome story.
