When Raisin is grounded for sneaking a night out, she not only misses her chance to compete in the Miss Ebony Pageant, but her efforts to uncover the famous person buried in the cemetery are brought to a half, too. Somehow Raisin's got to solve the big mystery no one in town wants to talk about. Will her discovery bring her glory, or is the past better off left buried?

The Secret of Gumbo Grove was an OK book. One of the characters was Raisin; she wanted to know about the history of Gumbo Grove. Later in the book she found out that the founder of gumbo grove was also the mayor and he was black. Another character is Miss Effie Pfluggins; she is the church secretary at New Africa No. 1 Missionary and she knew a lot about the church history. Raisin stared to tape a lot of the stuff that Miss Effie told her, when she was helping her clean the cemetery. When she took Big Boy to Miss Effie¿s house Big Boy told almost everybody. When Raisin¿s parents found out that she had been taping stuff that she sad that was not always true she got in trouble. If you want to find out more about this book, you would have to read it your self. I rate this book with four out of five stars.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
