5.0 out of 5 stars Pearl Cleage's JUST WANNA TESTIFY Will Have You Sharing For Some Time, May 10, 2011
This review is from: Just Wanna Testify: A Novel (Hardcover)
Using her gift of bringing together characters and personalities that are both relevant and easy to relate to, bestselling author Pearl Cleage is satisfying the thirst of her fan base and new readers with JUST WANNA TESTIFY.

In this new adventure that speaks to the fame-crazed, self-absorded world that we find ourselves living in, Cleage takes us into Atlanta's West End, a town like others that is wrestling to keep its identity and some semblance of normalcy. That becomes an interesting task when visitors enter the town, promising to bring some recognition and attention to the area; but it is what they intend on leaving with that becomes the real concern.

What develops is a storyline that is at times humorous yet speaks to many of the issues going on in Everywhere, USA.

What are you willing to give up to have the life you feel like is the one for you? Are there any good men (other than West End's unofficial mayor and the President) left in a world that has become so interested in itself? And then there is this thoughtful question: what are we allowing to suck the lives out of us, keeping us from really living? All of these and more are questions you will find yourself asking as you devour this literary adventure.

Smart, sophisticated and funny while remaining easy to read and enjoy, JUST WANNA TESTIFY by Pearl Cleage will have you sharing for some time.
