Interesting but not for me

Sugar Town Queens has an interesting premise: a mixed-race girl in the Sugar Town area of South Africa lives in a poor community her white mother, who is prone to fantastical visions. On Amandla's birthday, for example, she insists she wear a blue sheet "dress" to bring back her long-gone father. Amandla uncovers a mystery about her father and it appears she will learn more about her past and current community.

The jacket cover is interesting and lends to the multicultural aspect of the story. The writing did not help me to get attached to the characters but will likely create an interesting story.
