This book was absolutely brilliant. I couldn't put it down. Rain Pryor explores her Daddy with more detail and lovingness than any other that has depicted his story before. God bless you Rain! God made you for a purpose and your father, Richard Pryor, is very proud of who you have become.

I found this book interesting. It's an easy read, with same chapters. The subject matter delves into what it was like for Rain, being bi-racial, bi-religious, and caught up in the drama of her parents. Considering one of them was Richard Pryor, you can imagine that the drama was just that...dramatic.

She survived, and has blossomed as well. I really enjoyed learning about her life and thought she told it well.
