The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis

Ayana Mathis made a huge splash with her deeply brooding novel The Twelve Tribes of Hattie. Selected to be a part of Oprah’s Book Club and now featured on various bestseller lists, this novel is surely a talker. With a plot focusing on one mother’s plight of raising and protecting her “tribe” of 11 children and one grandchild in the Jim Crow era, many can relate to the hardships that are expressed throughout this novel’s discourse.
