Reading The Trouble with Gritsis like having author Phyllis Pittman join you on the front porch to sip lemonade and hear about one of her dear friends. Through the hilariously honest voice of a young girl, we experience Evangeline Tanner’s trials and victories as she matures, loves, and sets out on grand adventures. Expertly weaving Southern humor and the struggles of life together, Pittman has you anxiously awaiting the next trip to the old candy box.
