    Story
    (270)

    Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age - and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. But years later, she learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors.

    Lynn says: "Insightful and touching"
    "Just like listening to Grandma tell you stories"

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the glimpses allowed into the mind of Maya, the way she thought, the way she saw the world.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    "Preach it!"


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several moments in this book were life-changing for Maya, but hearing her tell them was life-changing for me.


    Any additional comments?

    It's difficult to hear of the hardships and struggles of a young girl, but it is also good to see the strength and resilience of the human spirit.
