Mother of Pearl, by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Image credit:

Barrie Graeber is called out of a high school faculty meeting and given the horrible news: her teenage daughter, Pearl, has been killed in a one-car accident.

For a parent, it cannot get any worse than that, right?


It is worse.

Reeling from the bits and pieces she learns, Barrie pursues justice.

“Drop it,” everyone says. “It won’t make any difference now. And think of Pearl’s reputation.”

But Barrie determines she will not give up until she uncovers every secret surrounding that night.

This Great Weekend Read is a tragic, poignant, disturbing, and supremely important story. Kellie Coates Gilbert nails it.

Thanks for reading,
