Title Profile & Character Information

The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat

Annotation
In the mid-Sixties, three black teenage friends-Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean-start meeting at Earls All-You-Can-Eat, the first black-owned business in Plainview, IN. Watched over by Earl, they keep meeting there for 40 years. Comparisons to The Help, Waiting To Exhale, and Fried Green Tomatoes; a big tour, a reading group guide, and multiple foreign rights sales recommend this book further.
