Red Means Go is the amazing story of a young woman, Joanne Balducci from Bayside, Queens. The oldest among her four siblings, all boys except her, she learns at an early age to handle responsibility and be a strong leader against all odds and ill will.
Falling in love with a neighborhood young man, their love affair takes us to the Bronx, to Island Park, and Long Beach by the Atlantic Ocean. Never complacent with the easy-to-reach low-hanging fruit, the Almighty blesses her with plenty of brainpower, gumption, and resolve, and she overcomes all difficulties piled upon her delicate shoulders.
From a large Italian family, she has plenty of relatives, some good, some are devil incarnates. She presents us in fine-tuned details the struggle to become a licensed professional, a mother of two, a singer, a college comptroller, and at the end, a lovable school bus driver and a Florida professor.
Deep introspection and sharp dialogue open the inner world of a woman who on a shoestring budget becomes a success in the world of greedy men and gossiping school administrators. An immensely enjoyable listen that will stay with the listener and will restore his or her faith in the goodness of mankind.
