In 1958 Georgia, the shade of a 13-year-old black girl's skin can make the difference in her fate. Tangy Mae is the smartest of her mother's 10 children, but she is also the darkest complected. The Quinns - all different skin shades, all with unknown fathers - live with their charismatic, beautiful, and tyrannical mother, Rozelle, in poverty on the fringes of a Georgia town where Jim Crow rules. Rozelle's children live in fear of her mood swings and her violence, but they are devoted to her. Rozelle pulls her children out of school when they are 12 years old so that they can help support her by going to work.

Well written......some parts were hard to imagine. The author captured the pure complexity of life in the south in 1950’s. Would have loved to see how the author would have developed the next the book

This is a love story of happiness, disappointments, growth, and redemption for oneself all entangled into reality. The heart is an organ full of certainties until you truly connect to it.

Great storyline
