This was a very compelling and heart warming story of true love and the "everyday" conflicts that can occur and destroy it. The crack epidemic that wa..Show More »s the story's back drop was vivid, real-life and told beautifully in this story. I highly recommend this story to all.
First of all let me say, I was pleasantly surprised to find out there was going to be a part 2 to White Lines. I absolutely loved part 1! This one,..Show More » part 2, it was a good read. It was not up there with part 1, but it was good. I say that mainly because this one ended so abruptly. The first book was really long and detailed, but because it was soooo good, the length didn’t matter. So I was a bit surprised when I saw how short this book was. *spoiler alert* Jada and Born, my two favorite characters in this series, need to get it together. I am totally beside myself with these two people. I need them with each other. I need Jada to find some peace and happiness. She’s been through so much in her short life. It’s a wonder she’s not in the psych ward with her son. I didn’t like her decision not to have Born come to her son’s hospital room and meet with the CPS worker. I understand that she wants to put her son first, but there is a balance she needs to learn. I hope this is not the end of their story. Sunny on the other hand, needs to get somewhere and sit down. This woman seems to be trying to live out her younger days that she missed because of becoming so seriously involved with a man at the tender age of 17. She is all over the place and she's knocking 40. Now she's messed up poor Malcolm. Sunny needs to stop being selfish and grow up. As for Ava, I really don't know. Maybe we'll get to see her find a love in the next novel. The bottom line is, this was a good read. I hope the shortness of this novel means that the next part will be here soon. There is so much to be addressed. I look forward to reading Tracy Brown's next project.
