another great read . . .

I picked up a book at the library last week and I have to admit, I completely judged this book by its cover.  Who wouldn't be intrigued by that photo ?  It reminded me of "it's the new Jan Brady" Brady Bunch episode.  The author recounts her childhood, being a white girl growing up in a predominately black neighborhood of South Seattle.   I didn't realize the local ties until I started reading.  Her stories are funny, compelling and heart breaking all at the same time.  I found myself unable to put the book down until I was finished.  I highly recommend !
