I enjoy this book, “Just Us Woman”, because it shows the bond between two woman or two girls can have without men or boys. This book is about a little girl and her sweet Aunt Martha taking a road trip all the way to the state North Carolina in Aunt Martha’s new car. The little girl always had to remind her Aunt Martha about everything. Aunt Martha always forgot. The last road trip they took together, Aunt Martha forgot the maps on her kitchen table so this time they brought two maps. The little girl always saved two show boxes for her lunch which was fried chicken and bread and the other one was for cake and napkins. They always stopped at the roadside markets on the way to North Carolina to buy all types of things like shirts. They often called it “junk they liked.” They loved going on these road trips because they didn’t want anyone telling them they couldn’t stop or things like that. As it started to rain, they would walk in the rain. Last year they walked in Delaware and Maryland. They took pictures, and every time they ran out of food they would go to a fancy restaurant and spend time together. I like this book because it shows the bond between family members and woman. It also shows that no matter how much the age difference, you can still have fun with family. What I didn’t like about the book was that Jeannette Caines didn’t say the little girls name. But other then that, I highly recommend this book.
