Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Aunt Sookie & Me by Michael Scott Garvin

Aunt Sookie & Me: the sordid tale of a scandalous southern belle

"If you want to read outstanding, character-driven fiction, this is a book for you. The characters absolutely leap off the pate. The setting is well drawn as well. And the writing is sharp and smart. I loved this."

Young Poppy Wainwright feels much like a deck of cards, shuffled around from a boozing mother to a beloved grandmother. Finally bussed to Savannah, Georgia, to live with her grandmother's cantankerous sister, Sookie. Through the enlightened eyes of a thirteen-year-old girl, the hilarity and insanity ensues.

From the best-selling author of A Faithful Son, this rollicking romp of a ride does not disappoint.

Aunt Sookie & Me: The Sordid Tale of a Scandalous Southern Belle is irreverent, hilarious, and heartbreaking. All political correctness is buried alongside the dead corpse in the family vegetable garden in this riotous book. But don't let the folksy and fresh recipe fool you, Garvin serves up a big helping of reality, cutting through small-town bigotry and bias.
