The book, described as “a journey of hope and dreams fulfilled,” is a riveting story of a young black girl’s journey growing up in the early ’60s. The setting is Detroit, where dreams are formed from life experiences within a city ghetto. A coming-of-age story set during the height of the civil rights movement, this was a time of music, baseball and fishing on the Detroit River, a time of developing and discovering identity.
