32 Candles by Ernessa T. Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A great book that has a great 80s movie tie-in. Davidia is an outcast because she is poor, her momma is a ho (no kidding), and she is the darkest women in the room. High school was not kind Davie but she soon corrects that, moves to a big new city and becomes a jazz star. Lo and behold, the people who made her life hell have re-entered her life in a dramatic way. What happens next and during it all is amazing, funny, sad, and redeeming. I did think the book wrapped up too neatly but overall, it was good.
