display_description A Delightful Summer Read. --The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

Reuben and Camille have always been afraid to let their children play outside in their rough Bronx neighborhood. So when they see an ad for homes in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, they jump at the chance. Spirits are high--until Reuben loses his job.

No one in Milo or Dawn's Brooklyn-based family has ever owned a house, and the Poconos seem perfect. But after they move in, it starts to look like their house was slapped together like a ham sandwich and isn't much stronger.

Norman and Veronica are happy to leave Washington Heights for the country. . .and so are their relatives. Each weekend brings a parade of empty-handed guests expecting to be fed but not expecting to pitch in and help.

Amid trials and triumphs, these families are about to discover that not all is perfect when your dreams come true. . .

"[Griffin Is] A Budding Name In Mainstream African American Fiction." --Chicago magazine

"A compelling drama about three families striving for the American dream." --Booklist
