Let me start by saying that the cover art for this book and the title drew me in immediately. I had the audio version (narrated by Tamika Katon-Donegal) and I honestly took my time listening out of pure enjoyment. The story is thought-provoking, emotional and heart-warming.

Avery is a senior in high school and she, her mom and dad have just relocated to Bardell, GA - a small town with a lot of racial history - from DC. They've come because her Grandma Letty is terminally ill and doesn't have much longer to live. However, tensions are high between her mom and grandma. They already had a strained relationship and Avery just wants to get to know her grandmother, but they're constant battles make it difficult. Meanwhile, Avery becomes friends with Simone & Jade and is navigating these new friendships when a romance blossoms that adds extra stress to their group.

I truly enjoyed this debut novel and highly recommend!
