Who Asked You? by Terry McMillan

"It's my day off and I'm in the kitchen getting ready to fry some chicken. When the phone rings and I see my daughter's name on the caller ID, I'm tempted to let it go straight to voice mail;"

"He's gonna be the smartest of them all," Mrs. Jordan said. "Too smart for his own good. He's my little travelin' man." She hugged him close to her, though he only had eyes for the lollipop."fredasvoicethe-friday-56_28.html

  4. In just those few sentences, I can hear the author's "voice." This sounds like the kind of book I adore.
    My post today features FLY OR FALL.
