Narrator Joniece Abbott-Pratt's warm, rich voice takes listeners on a life-changing road trip from New York City to Atlanta in August 1968. Zelda is feeling trapped at home while waiting to start her senior year at Spelman College. Her best friends, Veronica and Daphne, convince her to join them on the drive to Spelman, despite her fear of how three young black women will be received in the South. Abbott-Pratt creates delightful and lively personalities for the women with shifts in accents and tone, and a husky voice for Daniel, the Morehouse senior who joins them on their trip and intrigues Zelda. This captivating story does not steer clear of racial violence as the friends navigate dangerous and disturbing situations still relevant today.
