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.
The story line for this book was a little on the weak side. One thing that I can not phathom is a mother not letting her kid know who his father is o..Show More »r even telling him a name even if it aint the truth. I know some parents hold a lot of their pasts inside but eventually someone around usually says something to the kid or someone says something to the kid. I know this because of personal experience the truth always comes to light no matter what. One thing I was waiting to find out was if Jamari and Born were really brothers I know that Jamari was a liar but sometimes there may be some truth in a lie. The ending of the story took me by surprise because it ended without the readers knowing what will happen next. I just can not believe how stupid Sunny turned out to be and how selfish but if you think about it she never had time to grow up so she is stuck in that mine mine mine mindframe. All in all the book was ok I loved the first one better because I felt like I was part of the story this story left me with a lot of unanswered questions that I hope get answered in book 3.
