From Library Journal
This story of a clan of black folks living in Oklawaha County, Florida, is narrated by young Johnny Woodside, who has moved there from New York with his mother and sisters. The county is the home of his grandparents, Daddy Troy and Grandma Gert. Johnny, his cousins, and his sisters have one adventure and misadventure after another as they learn tough lessons about survival, self-respect, and common sense. The book rings with the humor and pain of ordinary life. Highly recommended for fiction and African American collections.?Fannette H. Thomas, Essex Community Coll. Lib., Baltimore
