    My friends and I got the book for our reading club because one of our members is from the land of Guyana which I knew nothing about. Also, I had never read a play before. This story is so real and touching to me because my parents are also immigrants. It covers the hard times and the high notes of a young girls life and some really funny moments too. Btw it's easy and fun to read a play. I recommend it.

    I saw the play in Guyana and absolutely loved it. So I purchased the book as a memento. Reading the play allowed me to revisit so many good moments in the story! Ingrid Griffith is such a good writer. I can't wait to see her next play or read her next book. S.W.

    My friend gave me this book and I could not put it down. Would be a great movie.

    Of course, its great to see a play but "Demerara Gold" by Ingrid Griffith is a GREAT READ. Get the book. I promise you'll love it. It's about a girl who fights to keep her hope and trust intact when her parents leave her behind in Guyana. And then it follows her through new troubles that arise once she comes to the U.S. as a teenager. The story has a familiar feel but is so fresh and touching. The author has such a good eye for detail and the dialogue is authentic and HILARIOUS. The characters jump out at you. One of the girl's custodial grandmothers in Guyana is so eccentric and sharply drawn - peeking out the window at her neighbors all day and sleeping at night with a wig and sneakers on -that I couldn't stop laughing. Ultimately, "Demerara Gold" is really about bravery. The end is unforgettable.
