This book held me captive for the 1 week it took to read it. Lyrical, intricate and insightful. I enjoyed every page, every character, every nuance.
Very interesting book. The story hit close to home and the lessons even closer. Very entertaining book. I couldn’t put it down and was annoyed every time I had to. Read it and find out for yourself.
I enjoy reading this book it had so many ups and downs and turns and twists.
This book is one of the best books I have ever read and I read a lot. Beautifully written, raw emotion, great characters. Totally real. I loved everything about it. A new favorite author, for sure.
This story felt so wonderfully familiar to me. Not because it was cliche or done a million times, but because the author really made the characters (Celestial, Roy, and Andre) so 3 dimensional that I could relate to them on nearly every level. Speaking of levels, there were so many to this book, as well as themes. Being a black man in America. Being an 'untraditional' black woman in America. Family ties. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that I absolutely loved this book. The deepness of it all translated effortlessly from the pages.

I chose to download this book while on an island vacation for a little “ light” reading. Jones did the miracle which all writers aspire to; she pulled me in and made me feel. I almost stopped reading as the emotional intensity was at a steady but I couldn’t put it down. Very informative and educational into the fear and injustice faced by Afro-American people within an unfortunately prevalent racist society.
