Cracking the Ice – blurb # 2

A few weeks ago, I shared the first blurb for Cracking the Ice, my novel due out in early June and promised more.  (A blurb is that glowing quote from another writer that when potential readers see it on the cover, prompts them to plunk down their hard-earned cash.)

This next blurb comes from Greg Neri, author of Yummy: the Last Days of a Southside Shorty, a 2011 Coretta Scott King Honor book. Among other flattering things, he said this:

“Cracking the Ice scores the literary equivalent of a hat-trick: funny, harrowing and finally, heartfelt. This book is a winner.”
