Publisher's Summary

When the seventh child of the Peace family, named Perfect, turns eight, her mother, Emma Jean, tells her bewildered daughter, "You was born a boy. I made you a girl. But that ain't what you was supposed to be. So from now on, you gon' be a boy. It'll be a little strange at first, but you'll get used to it, and this'll be over after while."

From this point forward, his life becomes a bizarre kaleidoscope of events. Meanwhile, the Peace family is forced to question everything they thought they knew about gender, sexuality, unconditional love, and fulfillment.

    I am an Audible Junkie!!!! lol I try to give reviews that are free of spoiler alerts. This is why I rarely go into the storyline.

    "Awesome!!"

    Starts off slow.... But gets much better. Great Book about homosexuality, child hood abuse, and skin complexion.

    Reading is everything to me - gave me escape as an abused child who needed it desperately; the universe when my world was a small village.

    "What a great book!"

    When you listen to as many books as I do, the bar for what a great book keeps creeping higher and higher. For me a great book must have:
    A good story that keeps your mind from drifting off and one that progress at a good pace
    Well developed believable characters
    Writing that engages the senses
    Dialogue that is purposeful to the plot
    Perhaps most importantly, a profound imprint on the reader that lingers with you after the book has ended.

    This book was all those things for me. Great job Daniel Black!

    "impressive"

    story line was excellent, the performance was intense and vivid. very strange family, but thru it all they remained loyal to each other, regardless of the situations, great job.

    "Refreshing!"

    I have not written a review in a while, Perfect Peace moved me to, this book was entertaining from beginning till the end, I had my coworkers telling me to please turn up the volume so they could hear it, and asking me what happened, what did they miss when they saw me the next day. This book had us laughing, screaming, gasping, clapping our hands, about to lose our jobs!! Lol!! I fell in love with the family. This book will definitely not disappoint!

    "Almost Perfect"

    Storytelling at it's finest. Deep, rich characters that come more alive with each paragraph. Brilliantly narrated.

    "Nice story!"

    I would definitely recommend this book for someone who enjoys the pursuit of finding reasoning behind human behaviour. I rarely say this, but I can see myself listening for a 2nd time.

    "I absolutely loved it. I could imagine everythin"

    the details of the author were very vivid. I didn't like the end it left me wanting more. What happened to Eulamae, did sugarbaby report her to the authorities? Did her and Paul ever leave the town...too many looming questions
