The Power of the P!
I enjoyed this story because it outlines the journey of a young lady who recognizes her situation and transforms her trauma into a profitable venture for herself. *Haters won't understand.* (If you got it, make it work for you) At some point in the story it became a bit implausable that this is the mind of a 16-year-old making these crafty decisions though.
I have great empathy for the plight of the black woman. They can become the most resourceful and resilient people on the planet. Think about it:In the slavery days a black woman *had* to make love to the "Massah", raise the "Massah's son and give herself to him if he desired her, go back to the "quarters" and make love to her very bitter "beau" -AND on top of that- keep her sanity while raising the children and keeping the house. Admit it! Black women are amazing! Once they recognize their situation and they learn how to turn their curses into triumph.
However, the conclusion could have been better for me in my opinion. I wanted Johnnie to make an explosive exit at the end. Not a quiet dribble.

We too finished listening to this book and kept asking ourselves why! The premise for the book sounded promising but in fact it was very poorly written and the ending was as if the writer just got tired of writing and quit...which was fine with us. Every now and then you get a stinker and this was one of those.
