This is a story about the breakdown of a marriage in the 1950s. It’s told from three perspectives: Jimmy, the would-be doctor, May, daughter of a wealthy and influential southern family, and Joey, their unplanned 12-year-old son. It’s a story about broken dreams and new found realities and how this family deals with them. I give this story an A+! – it was well-written and thought-provoking.

A+! – (96-100%)
