Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

This urban classic reflects the 1980s through the eyes of middle-class African-American Philadelphians as Tracy Ellison and her friends grow from childhood to late adolescence. Johnson's voice is wonderfully girlish; however, that same juvenile quality detracts from her characterizations of adults and males over the age of 13. Nonetheless, the exuberance and joie de vivre that Johnson brings to the freewheeling narrative make the story well worth listening to. The teenagers, teetering between childishness and adolescence, are brought vividly to life. P.R.
