The whole sequel is great!! Theres so much drama, suspense, and detail that you can lose yourself in Johnnies life,,,Thank you Mr. Johnson
I have read books one and two and I LOVE them. Despite the fact that I am a Grambling State University Alum and adore New Orleans, this book was facinating and gave me a glimps of the segragated and racist south in the 1950's. Can't Wait to start the next book!

As I stated before this was a different type of urban read but this one made me laugh as well cry, moving on the number 4. I started with number 2 so I am going back for number 1 and continue.
