Well developed memoir of the authors childhood and adulthood and the different paths followed by herself, her sister and her best friend from the 3rd grade/ I though I could predict the outcomes but was wrong; found myself rooting for each woman through her struggles and successes. Kudos to the author for bringing forward her life so clearly and with such heart.

With thanks to the author, publisher and Edelweiss for the Advanced Reader Copy

This book was so personal. Sometimes memoir is a great lens through which to view history. I really liked this for painting a portrait of Bronzeville is such an intimate way, and for making a compelling narrative for how different outcomes can be created by structural factors.
