I was pleasantly surprised by this book! The storyline was believable enough with a touch of unreality - something like the main character. Speaking of Davie Jones, this book has the typical antihero plot line which works wonderfully for the story. Sometimes you love her, sometimes you're ashamed of her. At the end it all makes sense and she holds a little place in your heart. I doubt I will ever forget reading Davie's story. It was entertaining, fun and had quite the message to boot.
I am excited about discovering this author's other works.
The narrator did a good enough job. She has great intonation and interpretation of the emotions of each character. She also had the southern attitude and accent down pat. She only fell short on the foreign accents. Wooooooo Wee! Those were terrible. Lol. Thankfully they were very brief and she redeemed herself otherwise.
Pick this book. You will enjoy it.
I love this story from the very beginning until the end. It is superbly written, and the characters were completely developed. I was completely interwoven into every experience, every stage, and even the unexpected twists. I did not want it to end! I look forward to the next story from thisamazing author. It is unbelievable that this is her first book. Enjoy !!!
One of the reasons I lives this book is because. It tells a black story that is not the cliché and tropes that has dominated any kind of expression of blackness. it's a story any girl, and especially any black girl could see herself in, a story any black girl could see herself the star of. Books like these are rare and I really appreciate and love this one.
This is my second time reading this book. Having the story narrated was a different experience. I laughed, got excited and sympathized with the character.Looking forward to hearing more from this author.
I enjoyed the progression of this story.
My favorite scene was when Davi ended up in the lap of her longtime crush while at work.
I wouldn't rename it.
