The author Sharon Bell Mathis has created a intricate world of sight and sounds that transforms the reader into a place and time that is so passionate, so intense, and so very real that the reader is longing to know what will happen long after the last page has been read. What a wonderful little book.

This book was fascinating. The reader is brought into the world of the blind while getting a strong dose of "black power". Mathis combines several problems - alcoholism, blindness, murder, rape, and minorities together in a very realistic and compelling story. Michelle rated it it was ok Feb 02, 2015.

  • An extraordinary work of art. I read this book as a child numerous times & well into adulthood. Sharon Bell Mathis has crafted a people, place & time that is so vivid, so vibrant and so alive you become one with Muffin Johnson world. You feel the pain, sorrow, laughter, joy and love in her world. Love. Love of beautiful extraordinary people. You will never want it to end.

  • This is a wondeful book that I never tire of reading over and over again. I read this book when I was a very young girl and I must say that after all these years I still enjoy this book immensley. Marvina "Muffin" Johnson is a blind, African American teenager not only coping with blindness, but more importantly coping with the death of her father who she loved dearly, and coping with a mother " Leola" who is loosing herself in drink and despair over the death of her husband. But despite blindness and grief " Muffin" has the love and support of neighbors " Mr Dale," " Mr Willie Williams," "Tank" " Miss Geneva", a friend "Deeta", and a love interest "Ernie" who all embrace "Muffin" during her many times of need. The author Sharon Bell Mathis has created a intricate world of sight and sounds that transforms the reader into a place and time that is so passionate, so intense, and so very real that the reader is longing to know what will happen long after the last page has been read. What a wonderful little book. A very satisfied reader.

  • The contents of this book had a tremendous affect
    on my early years. I read this book at a very early
    age and I can recall being encouraged by it's
    contents. I would recommend that all young people
    being challenged with life read this book.
    The fact that she was blind was overshadowed by the
    true challenges in her life.
    Alcholism, abuse, death, etc..... Very powerful!
