A wonderful middle-grade novel narrated by Kenny, 9, about his middle-class black family, the Weird Watsons of Flint, Michigan. When Kenny's 13-year-old brother, Byron, gets to be too much trouble, they head South to Birmingham to visit Grandma, the one person who can shape him up. And they happen to be in Birmingham when Grandma's church is blown up.

I thought it was a very good book. Never heard it before I had to read it for a group project. Found myself laughing out loud at just about every funny part. I highly recommend this book that likes a quick read.
It is a good yet rather weird book.
Best book ever:)
