I found this novel to be so engaging and thought provoking. The narrative covers the world of racial injustice and inequality at a university in Mississippi in current day. Young sorority women take action against the injustice while bucking against a woman who values money as power and keeping the status quo. She uses her power to manipulate situations to her advantage, often hurting and alienating others with no regard.

Seeing life from a black woman’s perspective is enlightening and painful. She sees her lot in life as set by age old traditions but fights to right the wrongs with the help of the young women. I read every chapter hoping the mean, spiteful antagonist would get her just rewards!
