It’s an intimate account of Wanda’s life and how she lives her dream.This American story transitions from her childhood in the turbulent city of Detroit in the 60’s and 70’s, to her unpredictable adult life in the very progressive and multi-cultural world of the San Francisco region.

The story illuminates how the author relies on her Detroit sensibilities to navigate through the challenges of education, work, friendships and family, with the goal of getting in, fitting in, and making it.The author powerfully grabs you by the collar and yanks you into her shoes to witness the experiences with awkward humor and bold candor.

It is packed with intriguing and dramatic episodes of everyday occurrences that display the psychology of chasing freedom within the societal confines of race- from post-civil rights to the current post-racial periods. It will lead you through a kaleidoscope of emotions and perhaps provide you with new insights. From the city-sponsored swim mobile, to the imminent fear of death in a sea of 20,000 others, it is captivating.This story genuinely poses the poignant and timely questions, with the 50th Anniversaries of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and The Voting Rights Act of 1965, what does the dream of freedom really look like in 21st century?

And are you living the dream?
