It's hard to write anything about this book that will do it justice. On the surface it's a memoir about an African American author growing up during the Civil Rights Movement. But it's not really about any one thing just as a person's life isn't about any one thing. There are parts about her family, her struggles with learning to read, and how she eventually found her voice as an author.

If you have an interest in memoirs, history, poetry, family life, or just want to read something extremely well-written then this is the book for you.
