Somebody’s Daughter: A Memoir is Ashley C. Ford‘s powerful debut work, a story of growing up a poor Black girl in Indiana battling her body and her environment, within a family fragmented by incarceration. For Celestial and Roy, the couple at the center of Tayari Jones‘ An American Marriage: A Novel, the American dream in sight. But it all collapses when Roy is arrested and sentenced to 12 years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit.
