Publisher's Summary

In the city of Crestview, Florida, there stood an old steel mill. There were several African American families that lived near it in a place they called the Steel Quarters! These are stories told by them and passed down from generation to generation. 

A single father raised his two kids. The girl and boy fought all the time. Many times, they fought so bad that Ms. Maimee would call the dad home from work. Fed up with this behavior, the dad gives an ultimatum: “Fight again and no more electronics!” 

They try their hardest not to fight, to no avail. Right in the middle of what seems like the biggest fight ever, they are met by an unexpected visitor: the Devil! She is ready to drag them to a place where they will burn. She only sets them free when they profess to be kind to each other. A valuable lesson was learned.

Village....

It takes a village to raise a child and she did what she had to do!

It's funny how one little thing can change your whole life just that fast or whatever!
