I was a bit skeptical about this book but OMG….it was awesome. I could not stop this book and was so disappointed when it ended! Tracey has done it AGAIN!! Great Book!
I'm a very confused person in search of knowledge and entertainment. I have fallin in love with audio books. In my quest for knowledge and entertainment.
The author took me on a journey in which many have lived and it was a very emotional experience. I felt the character's pain, joy, sorrow, pride.... I wanted to help guide the characters at certain points in this book. This was the first time I almost put a book down because the emotional aspect for me was to intense. Great read. Great reader.
I enjoyed the story line and the characters in this story. As I listened to the character backgrounds and their respective expectations, I could not help but yell, "Truth is relative" "stop blaming" "stop making excuses" "That's so selfish". I enjoyed the very realistic illustrations through words, by which I felt like a fly on the wall instead of just an audience member. I cast characters as I read and in no time, I was viewing this book in film form in my head.
This is an excellent story about the ravages of cocaine use, including crack use, on the lives of two young women, and the men who are dealers and who love them.The narrator's voice takes some getting used to, but soon into the book, I was looking forward to hearing Ms. Johnson narrate this excellent piece of fiction.
When Jada relapsed and no longer cared about her appearance, what others thought, and how she lost the love of her life.
She brings voices of compassion, understanding, surprise, and anxiety. She showed great range of display of emotions that each character exhibited.
No in one sitting, but definitely everyday!
Yes. This book played like a movie in my head. It was so real and took me on an emotional journey.
It was well written. Excellent storytelling.
Some of the characters sounded like they were straight out of the old south. It was distracting at first. Other than that, she did each character justice.
I think the title is perfect.
I didn't want it to end.
I've never felt so part of a book before listening to this one. I felt suspense as if Born was going to tap me on the shoulder and ask if I was high lol. I felt the heartache and helplessness I felt the love. Great book
