Totally loved this book! and, no you are not supposed to call in sick to finish this, but I did!!
Susan's characters and the story draw you in, yu feel like you are part of this story. The characters feel like people you could know. I lived through this era of segregation. Although born in NY, we moved to the south when I was a teenager. Where I came from we didn't have segregation so I was not only amazed but angered by it. I bucked the system every chance I got. I used "colored" water fountains, seats, bathrooms etc. Those actions created some anger, but mostly I think I got away with it because I was white. That was a very sad time for all of us. This books shows that time exactly, but I love the triumph it also shows! Don't miss this one it is a great read!
