    Davie—an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi—is positive her life couldn’t be any worse. She has the meanest mother in the South, possibly the world, and on top of that, she’s pretty sure she’s ugly. Just when she’s resigned herself to her fate, she sees a movie that will change her life—Sixteen Candles. But in her case, life doesn’t imitate art.

    "A good read...."
    Overall

    A true underdog story, 32 Candles embodies the spirit of most young women trying to make since of themselves and how they can fit into the world around them. Everyone remembers the Davidia Jones’ of our high schools. Awkward, shy, “unattractive”, usually poor, and in general; an outcast. Following Davidia Jones through her maturation as her class outcast to a beautiful young woman (internally & externally) who loves herself and her world was quite enjoyable. Ernessa T. Carter has a good sense of humor that I think will make most readers share the laugh out loud moments I enjoyed. A feel good story mixed with romance, drama and humor. Definitely recommend to anyone to read.

    Set in 1950s New Orleans, Little Black Girl Lost is a powerful tale filled with sex, greed, and the explosive political and social climates of an America long gone. Fifteen-year-old beauty Johnnie Wise lives her life devoted to God. But her innocence is shattered when her mother, who has been a prostitute for years, sells Johnnie's body to lecherous insurance man Earl Shamus.

    "Step it up"
    Overall

    I felt this book had a decent story line that with effort could have been a good read. Most of the plot was unrealistic to me, characters superficial and the books value was diminished with uneccessary sex scenes. I think the author should "step it up" on all levels of this one. My advice is to skip this one.

    Pursued by a Texas bounty hunter, Matthew returns to Fountain Creek, Colorado, to apologize to his brother for insulting his wife Annabelle and to share his Idaho homestead. Learning that his brother has left already, he answers an ad for someone to guide a widow to Idaho. But he's shocked to see the widow is Annabelle, a woman whose sordid past repulses him.

    "Overall good read"
    Overall

    Overall, I enjoyed Revealed and found it easy to listen to. Concepts of God's grace, forgiveness, friendship and love weave into a feel good story that I believe most will enjoy. My only critique is some points seemed to be drawn out (Matthew's initial hate for Anna Belle...Anna Belles own diminshed self love). These ideas slowed down the book. However, if you like romance and redemption stories you'll enjoy this one.
