I thought I saw all the plot twists coming but was I wrong. What a great storyline - had me thinking of Fanny Flagg. ( )

Much like "A Grown Up Kind of Pretty," by the same author, this book just shines with very clever characters and a bit of mystery. ( )

The writing was sound, but it was just too disturbing to me to love this book as I recall. I wasn't totally thrilled with the the characters, either. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446694533, Paperback)

For 10 years Arlene has kept her promises, and God has kept His end of the bargain. Until now. When an old schoolmate from Possett turns up at Arlene's door in Chicago asking questions about Jim Beverly, former quarterback and god of Possett High, Arlene's break with her former hometown is forced to an end. At the same time, Burr, her long-time boyfriend, has raised an ultimatum: introduce him to her family or consider him gone. Arlene loves him dearly but knows her lily white (not to mention deeply racist)Southern Baptist family will not understand her relationship with an African American boyfriend. Reluctantly, Arlene bows to the pressure, and she and Burr embark on the long-avoided road trip back home. As Arlene digs through guilt and deception, her patched-together alibi begins to unravel, and she discovers how far she will go for love and a chance at redemption.
