    Growing up in the Caribbean in the 1960s … A riveting coming of age story – a true page turner!

    I read this book all in one sitting. It’s a true page turner with a surprise end. Now, don’t go flipping to the back! Savor the story of Charmaine’s life as it should be appreciated, one page at a time.

    Ms Powder’s descriptions of life in 60s is as vivid as me taking a time machine back to the days of boiling the Christmas ham and playing in the streets at night. Her Christmas morning chapter is my fave …

    This book is truly an outpouring of the heart … My emotions were all a roller coaster ride as I read it from cover to cover in one sitting.

    Long after I finished reading, i kept thinking about the characters and possible alternate endings if only some events could have been tweaked in the middle … To get the reader to truly care, is the hallmark of great literary work!

    This is indeed one of the better coming of age books that i have read. Well done Charmaine Powder … looking forward to seeing more of your work …

    CAVEAT: While researching ‘The Disney Film Heritage of Tobago’, Charmaine Powder made contact with me. It was truly serendipitous how we met! Charmaine’s story is so intricately interwoven with Swiss Family Robinson that I ended up going back down the rabbit hole to dig deeper into Disney’s stay on the island of Tobago.
