Rainbow...

Nobody in the world ever was name that. My mother, Kathie, picked my name. They still waitin for a parent to show at school, and I damn sure won't explain how my mother can't show cause I don't know where she is.

I tell Eljay, who is kinda like my steady, that Miss Josie is my aunt, and how the reason I'm back and forth with her is cause my mother be working a gig outta town. It would be easy to like Miss Josie a lot if I wasn't wise to how people can draw you close, then turn you loose. But no one is close enough for me to tell about my mother.

I am lonesome so regular till it's like a job I gotta report to everyday. I could stay home and take care-a myself, but fourteen is call "minor."

So watcha gonna do?

I loved this book it was so realistic,really it kind of related to my life. I would not put this book in just the children's catogory,this book was meant for all ages.

This book really does represent mother/daughter abandonment relationships. I would encourage any/everyone to take time out to view what some african american teenage girls have to go throught.

I thought this book was an excellent book. It is a good book about life with a child whose moher is never at home. A whole lot of peope could relate to this book.

I hated this book. It was so boring. It was kind of hard to read with all of the slang words in the book. There is a lot of swearing. The chapters were confusing because in a new chapter, there is always someone else talking. It is hard to follow and I wouldn't reccomend it.
