    Hardcover Description:

    Women like us.In the 1960’s, four African-American preteensbanded together to form the Justus Girls, a crack drill team. They vowed to be friends forever, but Peaches, Sally Mae, Jan, and Roach drifted apart. It is Peaches’s sudden death that brings them together again. The hip-swinging Sally Mae is a new grandmother; the beautiful and once-shy Roach has become a devout Muslim named Rasheeda; and the levelheaded Jan has launched her own business.Troubles like ours.The Justus Girls soon find out that they need each other now just as much as in the old days. Jan’s husband has died and her business is faltering. Rasheeda faces the battle of her life, trying to keep custody of her two sons. And though Sally Mae doesn’t know it yet, her past is about to catch up with her.Friendship we could all use.The JG’s make a pact to find out what happened to Peaches, to meet once a week, and to reclaim their own lives. It’s a pact that will take them through the old neighborhood, with all its characters, and reveal secrets that have remained unspoken for too long. Through it all, the Justus Girls rediscover the love, laughter, and support they had forgotten, but that rescues them just in the nick of time.
