   An Honest Look
Ms. Turner does an outstanding job of presenting an inside look of what privilege entitles our seeing. She brings humanity to the Brusque reports we have been given in the past. She brings honor to parts of the past that have never been revealed or treated fairly.

   Very moving autobiography about childhood sisterhood and the connections that keep us together
I was completely engaged with this story of Dawn Turner's childhood relationships with her sister and her best friend and how these relationships evolved into adulthood. The book still resonates, although I finished it weeks ago. I give it to my sister and after that to my childhood best friend.

   Moving memoir
A moving look at life in Bronzeville in the 60's forward. Three different woman and three young paths. Love the power of the matriarchs and how they have influenced each of the younger women. I couldn t put it down.

   Great read
I couldn t put it down. The author does a great job explaining the community and all its changes along with the ways in which the community has affected her friends and their trajectory.

   Powerful book that challenges urban myths
This is a book about the lives of three girls who meet at the elementary school and whose lives take different paths. It is a book about second chances, redemption, forgiveness, and determination. Many who live outside urban ghettos think that poverty and crime are the reasons for a lack of achievement in urban youth, but this book tells us that more must be taken into account. I know this because I grew up in a block where a black boy retreated to gangs and drugs, but another became the CEO of a large company. When I finished reading the book, I thought, but for the grace of God go I.

   heartfelt memoir
Three similar girls of small backgrounds, but their paths are very separate. Excellent story and insights by a very talented and observant writer.

   One of the best ever!
The memories of the three girls'lives made me cry even more. It is hard to find the words, so I say just Dawn Turner, well done.

   Important Chicago Information
Born in Chicago, I moved to a small town and then moved back and lived there for 10 years as an adult. I have never heard the term bronzeville, which saddens me. I learned the memoir and loved SO much.

   Sad Truth and Triumph
Turner's disciplined, deeply affective prose provides access to a world of experience that few people have seen much less understand. She gives a full picture of the lives and times of three young women who grew up together and apart, with no easy answers as to how one gains conventional success, another a life prison term and the third, no life at all. Through it all, the book shows life in a neighborhood revived by black determination, abandoned by city services and betrayed by the memories of a caring, careful author.
