"Three Girls from Bronzeville: A Uniquely American Memoir of Race, Fate, and Sisterhood" by Dawn Turner

Go left or go right? It seems that at every point in life, you need a decision: take a familiar street, or a route you rarely travel? A restaurant you frequent, or something new for dinner? Sometimes, the choices won't matter next week or in a year, but – as in the new book "Three Girls from Bronzeville" by Dawn Turner – other decisions are more consequential. One of her earliest memories involves her newborn sister. Dawn Turner was no more than a toddler herself then, living in a hotel room with her mother because her father was gone again. Turner remembers the weight of her baby sister, Kim, and knowing that everything had changed.
