After giving her life much thought, Tracey Dubois was convinced that she had it all figured out. She would become a rich and famous singer, dazzling audiences with unmatched vocals and lyrics written to break hearts. She was prepared to do everything in her power to make her dreams a reality, at least until she laid eyes on JP Baptiste. Tracey decided then and there that she had to find a way to make JP hers, but she quickly realizes that her cantankerous grandmother, Ma-Me, was right when she preached, "be careful what you pray for." Ninth Ward Blues is a coming of age story that faultlessly captures the flavor of New Orleans and the unfaltering and unconditional love that can only be found in the heart of family.
