Jada left home at the age of sixteen, running from her own demons and the horrors of physical abuse inflicted by her mother’s boyfriend. She partied hard, and life seemed good when she was with Born, the neighborhood kingpin whose name was synonymous with money, power, and respect. But all his love couldn’t save her from a crack addiction. Jada goes from crack addict and prostitute to survivor and back again before she finds the strength to live for herself and come out on top.

This put me on an emotional roller coaster in a good way I laughed I wanted to cry and I felt for each character. Amazingly written.

The beloved #1 Essence best-selling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters yet. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they're pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards.

It was well worth every penny. It got me through work listening to it. I found myself so engaged into the story. As a 25year old this book taught me the value of friendship and how to come out of myself to be an even more better friend to what I like to call the 5 close friends in my life my SISTERS. Amazingly written I wouldn't have changed a thing. I hope that some other young woman or just a woman in general can see themselves in this story and use it as a guide to a beautiful sisterhood with their friends.

Naeema "Queen" Cole takes care of herself. From the death of her parents when she was just eleven years old to when she found herself pregnant and alone at sixteen, Naeema has had to make her own way in the world. She gave up her son for adoption and became an apprentice at a barber shop, making just enough money to pay the bills and get high. She tried being a wife, but ultimately found that she and Tank, now her ex-husband, are better friends and occasional lovers than partners.

Kept me on my toes. Amazingly written for a great visual. It left with sequel feel. I'm more than happy to purchase the next!
