Five Star Readers' Favorite

Young Poppy Wainwright feels much like a deck of cards, shuffled around from a boozing mother to a beloved grandmother. Finally bussed to Savannah, Georgia, to live with her grandmother's cantankerous sister, Sookie. Through the enlightened eyes of a 13-year-old girl, the hilarity and insanity ensues. 

From the best-selling author of A Faithful Son comes this rollicking romp of a ride that does not disappoint. 

Aunt Sookie & Me: The Sordid Tale of a Scandalous Southern Belle is irreverent, hilarious, and heartbreaking. All political correctness is buried alongside the dead corpse in the family vegetable garden in this riotous book. But don't let the folksy and fresh recipe fool you, Garvin serves up a big helping of reality, cutting through small-town bigotry and bias. 

"Aunt Sookie & Me is a heady and hilarious mixture of hard-won wisdom and Southern saltiness...the take deals with some weighty issues including sexual identity and domestic violence, but Garvin's compassion and light touch make this a highly entertaining and enjoyable novel." (Publishers Weekly)

The Narrator sounds like Forrest Gump

I wanted to like it. But I couldn't get through the Narration. The female version of Forrest.

Ms Hickman did a fantastic job

Angie Hickman hit it out of the ballpark with Garvin's novel. She captured each of the different zany characters.

Delightful

What a wonderful read! Loved the characters right away, especially feisty Sookie. This book had me laughing out loud but also very emotional at times. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
