* Queen Sugar by Natalie Baszile


The premise of Queen Sugar is that a young African-American woman who lives in Los Angeles unexpectedly  inherits a sugarcane plantation in Louisiana from her father. Upon moving there, the single mother, moving in with her elderly grandmother, discovers that the plantation is a mess and other planters not especially friendly. Add in a wayward half-brother and all the stereotypes of the South,  dysfunctional families, and heroic rescues come together for the ball (and a hurricane, too!)

O dear.
