    Rosie Perez first caught our attention with her fierce dance in the title sequence of Do the Right Thing and has since defined herself as a funny and talented actress who broke boundaries for Latinas in the film industry. What most people would be surprised to learn is that the woman with the big, effervescent personality has a secret straight out of a Dickens novel. At the age of three, Rosie’s life was turned upside down when her mentally ill mother tore her away from the only family she knew and placed her in a Catholic children’s home in New York’s Westchester County.

    The fact that Rosie is actually reading it, to hear her story, in her own voice was amazing and really added to the book.

    How she broke up the sad parts with laughter, her comedic timing was great.


    Have you listened to any of Rosie Perez’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no

    I throughly enjoyed this book, it was so interesting and surprising to find out the dark past she came from but is still the bubbly personality we see today. Also she is hilarious, there are some real laugh out loud moments in this book! She is a true star!

    In this sequel to Something on the Side, two Rubenesque beauties kiss the Big Apple goodbye and launch a new chapter of the Big Girls Book Club in Richmond, Virginia. But this time, the size-14-and-over ladies’ club is welcoming a chunky (and very male) player into its ranks—and plus-size shenanigans are sure to follow.

    I enjoyed this story a great deal, it kept my interest to the very end.

    Taught by her drug-addict mother to get hers by any means necessary, Tionna's heart is cold, but she holds a warm place in it for Duhan, the father of her two sons, her on-again-off-again boyfriend since they were teenagers, her knight in shining armor. But with Dunham behind bars and everything she loves seized, she finds herself starting over in the same neighborhood that she swore she'd never return to.

    Jennifer says: "This book will have you checkin' for K'wan!"
    "Good but the Sequeal is Better!"
    Overall

    I actually listened to the sequel Welfare Wifeys first before I realized that there was a book before it. This is a good listen but the narrator just didn't live up to the job that the Welfare Wifeys narrator gave. I still suggest this book because it gives you more insight on the charactors which I enjoyed.
