The New York Times praises Christine Lincoln for writing ''with understated grace and a terrific eye for detail.'' Through 12 expressive and haunting short stories, Lincoln explores the lives of an African American community in the South. In the first tale, ''Bug Juice,'' listeners meet Sonny, a small boy who is easily influenced by his elders. Sonny reappears in ''All That's Left'' alongside Junie and Scoogie, children on the brink of adulthood. Each story offers a glimpse into the lives of these young men and women who struggle to understand their own thoughts and emotions .

"This audiobook is positively ethereal. Through a collection of 12 short stories, Christine Lincoln creates an African-American community in the rural South. These are stories of loss and disappointment, struggle and survival, loss of innocence and the acquisition of knowledge. Lizan Mitchell is a gem of a narrator. Whether being a superstitious mother, a wizened elder, or a child on the brink of adulthood, Mitchell perfectly expresses the spirit and tenor of every individual we meet. She is, in a word, spellbinding. The listener will be transported to a place that is both magical and haunting. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
