Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, once one of the mafia's most feared hit men. With 19 confessed murders, the former Gambino Crime Family underboss - and John Gotti’s right-hand man - is the highest ranking gangster ever to turn State’s evidence and testify against members of his high-profile crime family. But to Karen, Sammy Gravano was a sometimes elusive but always loving father figure. He was ever-present at the head of the dinner table.

I love her narration and the story. To see her life from her eyes using her words makes you feel like you know her. I do not like to read about people in magazines because it's never true. Seeing her on her show always made me want to know her more and this book was the perfect opportunity. I love her strength and morals. This was an amazing listen and i could not put the phone down.

Bobby Brown has been one of the most compelling American artists of the past 30 years, a magnetic and talented figure who successfully crossed over many musical genres, including R&B and hip-hop as well as the mainstream. In the late 1980s, the former front man of New Edition had a wildly successful solo career - especially with the launch of Don't Be Cruel - garnering multiple hits on the Billboard top 10 list as well as several Grammy, American Music, and Soul Train awards.

The story is a really good insight on his life from his eyes. I love to see people life stories from them. I do not care for his narration it was not natural, its like he is reading a book that he is not familiar with. Overall good book and love the story.

If you could sum up I Don't Belong to You in three words, what would they be?

Bold, Honest, Independent

What did you like best about this story?

I LOVE that keke is reading the book it gives every emotion that she was writing and trying to get across. I love how she basically say BE WHO YOU ARE.

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

I didnt know anything about her until this book. I love learning about her life because I watched her on tv while growing up and hearing her story makes me feel close to her like we are lifelong girlfriends.

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

Laugh! I love that she was so open about her life and kept it raw.

I LOVE YOU KEKE..!
