Publisher's Summary

A fateful blow to the stomach would change Cynthia White's life forever, exposing the truth about her family's long-kept secrets. Born and raised in Winston Salem, NC, Cynthia, or Cee Cee as she is called, is raised by her father and grandmother after the death of her mother. Vernon does everything to make sure his daughter never wants for anything, providing a picture-perfect life and sheltering her from the hard streets that he once knew.

An incident at school changes all of this when Cee Cee meets Chuck and her hidden promiscuous ways are exposed. Will the one secret that she kept from her friend Chuck prove to be the deadliest, or will the secret that her family has been keeping be the smoking mirror?

    "I want more! I want more! I want more! *chanting*"

    Mike O, Ohhhh, Mike O! What else can I say but you are so wrong for leaving me hanging like this. I want more! This story was very well developed and you get to know the characters and their strengths and weaknesses. The description and sexual content in the book were well written and filled with imagination. What I like most about this book is the many real life topics you see the characters go through. This book actually has opened my eyes to what is going on in the minds of our youth and the things they deal with in their young lives. I also like how the author helps the readers put the puzzle pieces together so that you know the back story and the importance of some of the characters and can recognize their roles in the story. Lashone Garth is a good narrator and did ok but I think Celeste Graham would have did an awesome job too. I suggest this book to all my urban literature friends you won't want to put this one down. I can't wait for the sequel to see how the characters lives turn out based on everything that we now know. Good Job Mike O you did that and I want more!

    Would you listen to Smokin Mirrors again? Why?

    I would listen to the story again; it was very interesting, and I enjoyed it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was exciting and action packed, just what I enjoy in a book.


    What does LaShone Garth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She made the story leap off the page and gave it life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Listening to it definitely gave me a "no they didn't", experience. I couldn't wait to hear what was happening next.

    Story
    "A woman's life lived by in a teen world."
    Would you listen to Smokin Mirrors again? Why?

    Yes, the story truly kept me wanting to see how mature the characters would be with what they encountered.


    What other book might you compare Smokin Mirrors to and why?

    None at this time


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    What I liked most was that you really felt the drama that adults would go thru which the the teenagers experienced b/c the narrator coincide w/alot of the characters and the scenes. What I liked least was a few times the narrator did not give life to certain parts of the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Everthing in the dark MUST come to lite.


    Any additional comments?

    This truly is a story that is told by a woman told truth a teenagers world.

    Story
    "Drama & Wrecklessness Meets Real Life"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. The story was thorough and interesting. The way that Mike O wrote the book, makes you think that you really do know CeCe and Chuck. They could be anybody from your hood or school.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character from the book has to be Chuck. Not only is this dude involved in everything, but he's involved in EVERYTHING. Chuck is a real "F"ed up individual. I can't wait to find out what happens in book 2.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Perhaps the narrator could put more into the character voices. I didn't really notice a change.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When I found out who really killed Chuck's mom, I just remember thinking that was real messed up. His whole life was messed up and he didn't even realize it.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an amazing read and I look forward to book 2. Keep up the good work and I hope to see you on the best author's list one day! I know you can do it. You can do anything you put your mind to, and you've proven it time and time again. I'll continue to support you doing what you love to do. You're very creative ;). Start a book club!!!!
