While living in Boston with his mother and brother, Ace, Kevin "Kidd" Jamieson has tried to find a job and help support his family, but has been unsuccessful. When he meets his cousin, Cameron, from St. Louis, Cameron paints a picture of St. Louis that has never-ending opportunities. It's just too hard to pass up. Kevin will find out that he was sucked into moving to St. Louis and winds up working in a nursing home. During all of this, Kevin has been angry with his dad because he was basically non-existent in his and his brother's lives. But he demanded that his children carried his last name. Ace, who thinks he's God's gift to women, will soon find out that the grass is not always greener on the other side when it comes to being a womanizer. Their cousin Cameron, who has a degree from MIT, has made it his goal to prevent the family from annihilation. While researching their heritage, Cameron finds out their ancestors come from a royal African tribe. He tells his cousins either they can fall into the typical stereotype of angry black men, or they can become the strong black men their legacy has been made of.
Author Pat Simmons has another great book on her hands with Guilty By Association. Throughout this novel, you are constantly reminded of how strong the love of God is. You will read how each character has an obstacle to conquer, and how they soon realize they cannot do it without God. I enjoyed how the author has given just enough detail to each character that you understand what they are going through. You will fall in love with each character, especially Grandma BB! She's a pistol. But with her help, and the help of some others, you will see how the angry black man's wall starts to crumble. Even though Kevin's trying hard not to let that happen, with God's help, Kevin is fighting a losing battle.
