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)

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.

Such a lovely, touching, audiobook.

I laughed out loud. I cried. The characters are so real to me they moved right into my soul. I finished the last page and turned right back to the beginning to read it all over again, to revel in it. Do not miss the chance to meet Poppy, Sookie and the rest of the crew.

Southern Spice with a twist

Garvin's audio book is hilariouly outrageous. Aunt Sookie & Me explains what it is like for someone who experiences gender questions through Southern spice and wisdom all rolled together.

Outstanding listen.

Very enjoyable listening. with great humor and yet there were sobering parts that made you think about how much real life issues are added. Would love to see more about these characters.
