So far this book is amazing. I hardly ever read new books when they come out. I always wait sometime until I read reviews or the book goes on sale. Ayana Mathis writes in different points of view from various characters. It keeps you in the book. I love the setting and the time she chose. This story is set during the Great Migration. I was surprised when I heard that this book is fiction. The characters seem so real that I thought that it had to be nonfiction.
