This book is published by Harper Collins, so the reader knows the content and editing will be much better, than the usual Smashword's releases. I paid $2.99 for this 285 page novel. While it held my interest and was completely different than any book I have ever read, I am not sure I liked it or not. It is a romance, one of those star crossed lovers, wrong side of the tracks, heroine down on her luck and must go home again books, that is where the usual goes off the beaten track and forges a new unusual pathway. I loved Queenie and her family, the plot was realistic, and I know people just like those depicted in this book. I understood the humor and found the death row meals extremely emotional. I cried a few tears over the hardships faced by this family. This is not the type of book I typically read and I honestly do not know how to rate it. I am giving it four stars out of five, because it so unique and has more pluses than minuses. This book's content was unexpected. It was a fast read and I would like to read a sequal to see how this family turned out, now that the crises has been resolved. There is a past murder, violence, (mostly non-descriptive) a lot of cursing, talk of sex, but no actual sex and some religion. There is out of wedlock children and past prostitution, child neglect, bias against the poor and lots of emotion in this book. There is also family love, strong friendship, caring people and people fighting for their place in the world and never giving up. Chick lit. I think mature 16 year olds could read this, but not for anyone younger.

I question that death rows have their own cook

As it is possible to be there for years can each meal a request?
