The Twelve Tribes of HattieThe Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Every so often you read a book that amazes you with the writing, astonishes you with the depth of the description of and voices of the characters, and finally annihilates you with the turn of events. This is that book.
This is not a light read, y'all. This is true literature. I always know that a book is good when I can't wait to pick it back up again at the end of the day, but my stomach is in knots about the things that I will read.
Ayana Mathis is our generation's Alice Walker. Definitely add this one to your list.
