Charming historical fiction featuring the sharp-witted advice columnist, Miss Sweetie. Atlanta in the 1890s was struggling with racism, not only against the emancipated slaves, but also their Chinese replacements. Holding her secrets close, Chinese-American Jo (Miss Sweetie’s creator) boldly envisions a future even while her past struggles to reveal itself. A sweet story, handling issues of class and racism gently.— Jamie
