Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mama Ruby fans, this is the Upper Room prequel you’ve been waiting for! Monroe not only answers questions about how Ruby came to be one of the most vicious and fascinating characters of our time, but opens up more questions about the love/hate relationship with her best frenemy Othella Cartier. Great dialogue, setting, and more.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Although this works as a stand-alone title, fans of Monroe’s The Upper Room will be thrilled to see this prequel, which explains what made Mama Ruby the one-of-a-kind woman she is.” Booklist
