Gee, author of I Can’t Live Like This Anymore!
In the 1950s, colored people and whites don’t mix much. Different neighborhoods,
different schools, even different drinking fountains keep everything separate. Comfortable. Safe.
But changes are creeping into Jake Schultz’s Chicago neighborhood--changes
that could force Jake to reexamine the way he looks at race, changes that could lead his young son to the love of his life,
changes that hint at profound shifts to come.
changes start when a know-it-all colored woman—Mama Rose—moves in right next door to Jake. Her
granddaughter, Shelly, forms an immediate bond with his son, Mark. Their love story spans decades, and
leads them to a choice: will they be able to put their differences and secrets aside and allow love to transform them?
