This has to be one of my all-time favorite books. I first read it when I was 12, so of course I didn't quite understand all of it. Anyway, I read the book to tatters. I reordered it recently (from Amazon, of course!) and have enjoyed it again and again since receiving it.
The book perfectly captures the pain, neediness, and anger of a girl from the ghetto and her subsequent struggle to overcome her childhood. I would recommend it to anyone of any age that wants a good, solid read.
I have also read The Soul Brothers and Sister Lou, a young adult book by Ms. Hunter-Lattany. It, too, is excellent. I just wish she'd write more books!
