 Speaking of Summer ; Kalisha Buckhanon
Counterpoint - 2019


"I was the nice-looking, well-dressed woman running down 151st Street in Harlem after school and before evening rush hour on a bright day at the end of August in 2015.

If you saw me with my purse half-open and my balance tested more than once, you were wrong to laugh and right to be alarmed."

What do you think, read more or pass?


  1. I would probably keep reading. I hope you enjoy it.

  2. That sounds like it's going to be good.

  3. I would read more. Why is she unbalanced? Why is she in a hurry? Is she running to or from something. I look forward to your review.

  4. I'd keep reading, I want to know why she is in such a hurry and why she is unbalanced.

  5. Oh, yes. I want to know why I'd be right to be alarmed!

  6. I'd keep reading to figure out what is going on. I'm curious why we should be alarmed.

  7. I'd definitely want to know what was wrong with her! Lovely cover, too.

    Here's my Tuesday post.
