    The pleasure of beeing rich.

    So..I don't know what kind of review I should write. I think that this book isn't a book where you just can write the review.It is a book about so much more than a review.I can't be reviewed because it has so many different thoughts,feelings...3 wonderful African American woman are remembering their childtimes.I just thought this book woul be very boring because it didn't really include a mystery..but when I began to read...I was suddenly there in their in that L-shaped house.I was suddenly feeling their poorness,somehow their sadness,but somehow their happyness.We now think that happyness is to be rich,having a great house,good isn' be rich means to have children and to have a life.TO live your life like everyone else does.It doesn't matters where you live,where you wash your clothes,and where you buy your milk.Any person who read this book and really enjoied it,will now know the pleasure of being rich. I am rich now too.I don't mean rich of am now rich of that wonderful knowledge this book gave me. IF YOU THINK THIS REVIEW ISN'T RIGHT..JUST READ THE BOOK AND YOU WILL SEE THAT i AM RIGHT.

    This book points out the struggles and triumphs of blacks. I truly enjoyed reading this book. It shows that through faith and trust in God, anything is possible. Eloise Greenfield is a dynamic author. Keep up the good work!
