Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Robinson's (When I Get Where I'm Going) latest offers a timely, though ultimately forgettable, glance into a turbulent inter-racial friendship. Black Mia Marks and white Danielle King are schoolmates and budding friends who must confront issues of race and class in 1970s suburban Michigan. Dreaming of careers as teachers and writers, the girls aim to help each other achieve these goals while coping with their prejudiced friends and family. Predictably, a man comes between them. After years of estrangement, a tragic accident involving Mia and Danielle's daughters brings the friends together again, and they must address their intense history for the sake of their families. Despite the novel's many tragedies, readers may have trouble investing in the immature and shallow heroines, undercutting the power of the denouement. However, those anxious for second chances in life may find the novel gratifying. (Aug.)

I was very excited to read this, as the story takes place in Michigan and Cheryl Robinson is originally from Detroit, Michigan! I didn't even pay attention to the number of pages when I signed up to read this book. This ARC copy is actually 508 pages! I thought it would take quite a while to read! I was surprised when I started reading it and it just flew by! I've seen mixed reviews on this book, so I just wasn't sure how it would be. The story starts off in the year 1976. Danielle stands up for Mia at school. Mia's teacher is prejudiced against her because she is black, and Danielle is going to vouch for her. They became best friends. From there, the story goes back and forth from their school/college years to present day. Mia was used to getting what she wanted. She got a big surprise when she went to Saks! And that old cheap cell phone for business that her husband had. Come on--he is really stupid if he thinks she is dumb enough to believe that one. Her husband Frank really has the nerve to tell their daughter Alexa that she could have a boy stay at their house just because he was a star player for U of M. At least Mia stood up for what she thinks is right and made them stay in the guest bedroom. Yes, she is away at college and can do whatever she wants there, but she is staying at her parent's house. I know some people don't like Mia, but at least she went out and is trying to make a life for herself again. As for Frank and his drinking, that is a tough situation to handle. Living with someone who is a drunk is not easy. You don't really know until you are in that situation. Cheryl Robinson made this story really relevant. There are mentions of Facebook. She also deals with important issues like texting while driving, cancer, friendship, and forgiveness. I loved this quote from Mia: "She snatched the door back open and shouted, "And if you didn't have money, none of these women would want you, with your old Humpty Dumpty looking ass." She slammed the door again, and this time she felt much better. (p.113) All I thought when I read this was --yes --- you go Mia. There were a few confusing things to me. The fact that there was a Chris in the past and one in the future that was the boyfriend of Mia's daughter was confusing. It all made sense in the end though. It was kind of hard switching back and forth from past to present and keeping track of what was what. I do quite a few author interviews. I found a great new interview question out of this book from page 397. "Tell me what your book is about in one sentence." I would recommend this book for sure. Cheryl Robinson really moved me with this book. I was literally brought almost to tears towards the end. It's a wonderful book about friendship, separation, and just learning through life how to forgive.

The book was a great read. It was nice that Danny and Mia could work on their friendship at the end.
