Intentional or not, black girl magic became black girl solidarity. And it happened at the site of the ugliest championship finish in US Open history, when Osaka defeated Williams a year ago to win her first Grand Slam, only to have the event marred by boos directed toward official Carlos Ramos. When it comes to winners, losers, tears, and moments that live forever in video clips and memes, the MTV Video Music Awards are the pop culture holy grail. I had to indicate to her that she needed to stay, and perhaps this is a way to have this come full circle and let [Taylor] have her moment. I would normally not say anything, but I had two crying artists.
That conciliatory moment between the two of the biggest pop stars of the past decade had to be produced by a television professional trying to clean up a mess of a live broadcast. Osaka, on the other hand, unilaterally made the split-second decision to share the mic with Gauff out of a sense of empathy and compassion. Honestly, like, I know that you guys are kind of coming at her with love, too. Good story as I'm looking forward to reading more about Johnnie Mae's quests. May 01, Jennifer Williams rated it really liked it. Make sure you read book 4 if you want to read this one.
I will say that it seems possible to read 4 and 5 and then read books 1, 2 and 3 but in that order if you wish. With that said, that book really tops it off and gives us a good view into how Johnnies family lineage started.

If you did not read the first 3 books, not knowing who Johnnie is not a big deal. This book picks up from book 4 and gives us some clues as to what we already think. What I love about these books is that it gives us a li Make sure you read book 4 if you want to read this one. What I love about these books is that it gives us a little something to hold on to until the end which is where we get a huge burst of drama.

Mar 10, Terry rated it really liked it. I really struggled with finishing this particular book. I found it difficult that a 16 year old in slavery times has the ability to not only sass whites but to have them so enthralled with her beauty and eyes that she has them confessing to murder and all sorts of other things.
Quite unrealistic in MY eyes.
But it is fiction after all. However, I prefer the fiction I read be as "realistic" as possible if that makes sense.

My mother bought me this book when I was in the hospital last year. I didn't get a chance to read it until now, but I truly enjoyed. It wasn't the type of book I would normally be interested in since I normally stick to urban fiction and YA books but it really surprised me!
The characters were brilliant. This was the first book of the series that I read so at times I was a little confused butthere were references in the book that made sure I had the ability to stay on track.

It was juicy with lots of unexpected twists and turns. Certains things in it would turn me off momentarily while reading.

Oct 25, Cherelle added it. This was actually the first book I read in the series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had been looking for a few historical fictions, I found 3 and started reading 2 at the same time.
