Publisher's Summary

Saturday Night Cocoa Fudge is the coming-of-age story in an era of bobby socks, poodle skirts, and the freckled-faced girl that wore them. It's also about the Deep South and sweetly flawed women who taught her what she was meant to be and what she was not meant to be. Their corner of the world was filled with folklore, superstition, and mystical ideas. Her grandmother believed and practiced most of these, passing them onto the next generation. The little girl's life was populated with strange relatives, quirky neighbors and mysterious Bible verses that could stop the flow of blood. Being a member of this bizarre family made life worth living. These people were so fiercely loyal in their love for her, for each other, she felt they deserved to have their story told.

Great book

Would you consider the audio edition of Saturday Night Cocoa Fudge to be better than the print version?

Did not read the print version.

Any additional comments?

It was a very enjoyable book to listen to. Living in the north I enjoyed the southern characters and life in the deep south. Great stories.

The best book on southern youth. Loved it!

What did you love best about Saturday Night Cocoa Fudge?

The humor. Gloria could laugh at her self.

What did you like best about this story?

The detail. It took me back to my youth. Made me remember my grandma & the way things were.

Which scene was your favorite?

It`s hard to choose a favorite part. But I think it would be the snuff story.

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

It would be the part about not knowing her Daddy and his death.
