Wash Belly is a nostalgic look into the childhood of Gregory McEwan, author of Freedom City and HOMORIA. Back in Jamaica, the youngest child is usually known as the "Wash Belly" of the family, and being the last of several children, Gregory was indeed "Mommy's Wash Belly". With his parents living in Canada for most of the earlier years of their lives, Gregory and his older siblings resided with their adopted grandparents, Banka, and Miss Dell. Life within the Longmore home had its ups and downs, but the closely bonded siblings had one common goal – they all dreamed of moving to Canada one day. Wash Belly will take you back to the 70's – back to Trelawny, Jamaica; in a little house filled with laughter, good times, tears, and sorrow...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Touched all my Feelings" This book is so far from the way I grew up. It made me see things in a different perspective. it was an easy read that just pulled you right into the lives of 7 children who were left at very young ages by their parents who were searching for better lives for all of them. I laughed, I cried and at times I was angry. But Greg sums it up so beautifully at the end that the anger just fades away, and my heart was once again filled with warmth.
