This book is about two brown girls who dream to become dancers–but only Tracey has a flair for it. The other girl has flat feet and a little to no talent for dance but abundant thoughts about time and rhythm, about black Music and black bodies, about what makes a tribe, or makes an individual free in every sense of the word. It’s a close relationship, a complicated childhood friendship which ends all of a sudden when they reach their early twenties.
What makes this book stand out?
The fiction was a good one, to begin with, and had some good twists and turns and it reflected the life choice that we have to make at times. Quite an unusual book for club books.

Impressive language and fascinating concept that revolves around life.
Don't read it for
The storyline is good but keeps moving out of focus, so the way the story progresses on is not that great.
