Publisher's Summary

Cris Burks won widespread acclaim for her engaging first novel, SilkyDreamGirl. Burks' second offering follows the life of a determined girl struggling toward adulthood in 1950s Chicago. The devastating discovery that "Daddy" is not her real father opens a great chasm in Neecey's world and leads to Neecey's abusive mother bringing a succession of no-good men into the home. Nevertheless, as she grows into a woman, the resilient Neecey strives to overcome despair and forge a new life for herself.

It was alright!

I enjoyed the reading but there is something that is missing. I understand the author is telling the story of a little girl that was forced to be grown before her time, but......SPOILER!!!! But there was never a reason why the mom acted the way she did. Most of the characters identities were never revealed so I could not get a real connection.

I feel that the writer could have done a better job pulling the story line together to help the audience. Not sure I would recommend this book!

I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes it made me angry on the things they did, but I really enjoyed it. It takes all kinds of people to make this world, and all kinds of mothers are included in that group.
