's review

it was amazing

A quick and delightful read. A coming of age story of Betty Jean, a woman of a certain age. Engrossing. I was pulled right into the drama of this family. McMillan can write convincingly from every point of view. We get to live in the heads of people from all backgrounds and economic strata. From crack heads to college grads. Even someone swirling the drain of Alzheimer's Disease. We see the effects of changes in an old neighborhood on the people determined to stay and those who left, never to return. We watched as Betty Jean's grandsons, Luther and Ricky, grow and develop. They had two of the most moving chapters in the book for me. I won't spoil it for you but, Ricky's chapter seized my heart with the certainty that he has learned a lesson well and Luther's chapter was a tear jerking love letter. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
