The Power of the P!
I do love historical fiction
I think that the world that was created was the best part of Little Black Girl lost. The author did an excellent job transporting me to the 1950s New Orleans setting.
The most memorable moment was Johnny's mother sold her virginity. It was just really hard to hear due to it being so detailed but it was needed to really understand what Johnny lost and how she lost it.
