    Overall a good book

    The book had a VERY slow start and this is something I am not use to when it comes to a DeBerry and Grant book. However, midway through the book picks up and is worth the read. This is a great book for book clubs.

    I Also Recommend:

    Greater Expectations,

    Sometimes our expectations of family members exceed their character and the result is disappointment and frustration. Such is the case in "Uptown." Cousins Avery and Dwight are both interested in a piece of property but for very different reasons. Dwight wants to use the property to fulfill his father's dream of building a high-rise development. Avery is ready to sell her portion of the property until she learns unsettling information. The old adage "blood is thicker than water" is undone when finances are put in the equation revealing some disillusionment.

    DeBerry and Grant's "Uptown" attests to the necessity to forgive for personal growth, especially when errors and disappointments are not confronted when they occur. It tells what could be an emotionally complex story in a simple, straightforward way. The writing is sometimes lax. However, the storyline holds enough intrigue to keep readers' attention. I would recommend "Uptown" for its timeliness, content and plot development.
