Camille Brousarde is tired and discouraged. She lives in the Watts area of Los Angeles, which has never recovered from the race riots. Her seven grown children seem directionless and adrift. When she decides to open a local restaurant, Camille's Gumbo Kitchen, she hopes that its tasty offerings will pull together not just her family, but her neighborhood, too. Crawfish Dreams is a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers pick.
