Publisher Description

The captivating first book in the acclaimed, award-winning and New York Times bestselling God series sweeps readers back to the streets, porches, and parlors of civil rights-era Ohio to bring to life the beginning of an enduring friendship between two girls from opposite sides of the track.

"Reminiscent of Zora Neale Hurston." —Publishers Weekly

Annette Goode is a shy, awkward, overweight child with a terrible secret. Frightened and ashamed, Annette withdraws into a world of books and food. But the summer she turns thirteen, something incredible happens: Rhoda Nelson chooses her as a friend.

Dazzling, generous Rhoda, who is everything Annette is not—gorgeous, slim, and worldly—welcomes Annette into the heart of her eccentric family, which includes her handsome and dignified father; her lovely, fragile “Muh’Dear;” her brooding, dangerous brother Jock; and her colorful white relatives—half-crazy Uncle Johnny, sultry Aunt Lola, and scary, surly Granny Goose.

With Rhoda’s help, Annette survives adolescence and blossoms as a woman. But when her beautiful best friend makes a stunning confession about a horrific childhood crime, Annette’s world will never be the same.

Cry, laugh, suspense, repeat

This is one of the best books I’ve ever read, I’ve read it 3 plus times and I still discover something new every time. As you get older and read this book you develop different perspectives and you have those awakening moments. This book is relatable, welcoming, engaging and darn right excellent. I got to know Annette a lot throughout the God series and by the final book, I no longer puttied her and I learned to accept her for who she was. She made me upset, sad, happy, and frustrated throughout the series and I appreciate that considering it’s fictional yet, it had the ability to move me over and over. If you haven’t, please read!!

Second Time Around

I read this book ten years ago. After reading it again, it was better than ever! I couldn’t stop reading, can’t wait to read the next book in this series that I read so many years ago too.
