A powerful storyteller, Woodson shows how teenage girls August, Angela, Sylvia, and Gigi bond with each other as they journey through their adolescence, each missing something within their own families that she needs.  Woodson navigates life on the edge of poverty where the characters witness much suffering and loss—the mother who does not come home, the addicted veteran, the prostitutes. The narrator August finds hope and strength.
