|Plot Summary of I Wish I Had a Red Dress|
|"As white person, I picked this book up without a cover, not knowing it was a "black" story. I found the author's storytelling fascinating, along with the subject involved. The characters were very well defined without going into too much unecessary detail. It was a difficult book to put down and I was sorry when I was finished reading it, I wanted to hear more about the "Miz J's" life. "
