The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat literally had me laughing out loud, and I couldn't wait to pass it on to my mom. Superb character development from start to finish! This is a novel about the power of friendship, family, and community. The story surrounds a group of women who grew up together and helped each other face some of life's most difficult challenges, everything from adultery and abuse to drug use and death, and though there are certainly some tear-jerking moments in the book, there are many more moments of celebration, joy, and laughter along the way. It was so good that I read it in one sitting. Very few books make me actually laugh out loud, but this one did!
