Staff Reviews


A fantastic cast of characters inhabit Bennett's amazing first novel about making life-altering choices and trying to live with the consequences. The author deftly illuminates the complexity of young adulthood and the hypocrisy of the older generation within a church-going black community in southern California. Bold and eye-opening.

— Stan Hynds
