It is Annie Desmond’s sixteenth birthday and her friends have decided to
help her celebrate in style, complete with a brand new tattoo. Before her
special night is over, however, Annie and her friends enter into a life
altering pact. When Annie tries to make good on her promise to her friends,
she is forced to take a good look at the world that surrounds her. She
befriends Malik, who promises a bright future, and Keera, whose evangelical
leanings inspire Annie in a way her young parents have not been able to do.
In the end Annie’s choices propel her onto an irreversible path in this
story that combines wit, poetry, and hope.
*Milk Like Sugar’s remarkable features include its locale, an urban,
African-American subworld that displays, for once, neither the brutalizing
clichés of a poverty-stricken ghetto nor the discomfiting artificiality of
a talented-tenth safe haven. Instead, Greenidge populates her story with a
sampling of the innumerable young people between those extremes." - The
