Book Description


At last, mega-bestselling author Sister Souljah delivers the stunning sequel to The Coldest Winter Ever. Fierce, raw, and filled with adventure and emotional intensity, A Deeper Love Inside is an unforgettable coming-of-age story in the words of Porsche Santiaga, Winter’s younger sister.

Sharp-tongued, quick-witted Porsche worships her sister Winter. Cut from the same cloth as her father, Ricky Santiaga, Porsche is also a natural-born hustler. Passionate and loyal to the extreme, she refuses to accept her new life in group homes, foster care, and juvenile detention after her family is torn apart. Porsche—unique, young, and beautiful—cries as much as she fights and uses whatever she has to reclaim her status. Unselfish, she pushes to get back everything that ever belonged to her wealthy, loving family.

In A Deeper Love Inside, readers will encounter their favorite characters from The Coldest Winter Ever, including Winter and Midnight. Sister Souljah’s soulful writing will again move your heart and open your eyes to a shocking reality.

3.0 out of 5 stars A big let down... January 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a big fan of Coldest Winter Ever. I remember being enthralled with the book in high school and not putting the book down until it was finished. I could not wait until the movie came out. I was let down when the movie deal fell through but the light at the end of the tunnel was the sequel to the book. I couldnt wait for kindle to get their act together so I purchased it for Nook on Barnes and Noble. So the book picks up with Porsche being 10 years old and what happend to her from the point when she was taken from the family home that fateful day by BCS. First off, some of the words, thinking and ideas this little girl has in this book makes it UNBELIEVABLE that a 10 year old is thinking these things, writing these things, experiencing these things and understanding these things. The first 22 chapters were boring and I found myself not interested in reading the book anymore and having to will myself to continue reading. From juve, to an indian reservation and back to Brooklyn I just couldnt get into this book.

After attempting to read the last two Midnight books and losing interest I had a vague notion that Souljahs writing style had changed and thus her books are changing too. However, when you write an urban masterpiece like Coldest Winter Ever, you cannot change the flow of the story by writing something that is totally opposite. In CWE you felt Winter, you could see Winters reality through her words. The way she talked, the way she thought, the way she moved you understood it and most importantly it was believable. The book did pick up somewhat when Porsche finally got off the Indian reservation and ventured the Brooklyn streets in search of mom only to find out that her mother was a crackhead, but again she was 10 YEARS OLD!

1.0 out of 5 stars Did you read Midnight? Then you've read this book. February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Look, I know what you're thinking. You grew up on TCWE and Flyy Girl books. You feel like Souljah couldn't possibly mess this up. And hey, the first chapter is pretty interesting, like the old Souljah. So how bad can it be?

Very bad. Very, VERY bad.

If you read the Midnight books, you've read this one. A preteen kid who is able to hustle up tens of thousands of dollars while apparently nobody - and I mean NO DAMN BODY - seems to care that she's never in school. A prepubescent child who writes and talks like a 40-year-old. (I'm an educator who gives writing prompts on a near-daily basis, so Porsche's so-called journal entries are all that more ridiculous.) Seriously, 80% of this book is Porsche from ages 10-12. Bored yet? You will be after the first 300 pages.

Let's not forget Souljah's Islam fetish, where Muslims are never presented as real people and Islam is some magical cult that would save black America from itself. Does Souljah even KNOW any Muslims? Because they are never people in her stories, only caricatures. Souljah's penis envy is also in overdrive by the end - her definition of "patriarchy" could have only been Babelfished from ancient Greek, it's so off-base. Let's not even get started with the inconsistencies! Even the ones she tries to explain away (like her relationship with Buster) are appallingly bad.

Pick this up at the library if you just have to check it out, but do NOT put your money towards this project. It's time to stop supporting mediocrity - and long-winded mediocrity at that. TCWE was either a fluke or was ghostwritten. Midnight, Meaning of Love, and now this. One...two...three strikes, Souljah. Hang it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Wait! January 29, 2013
Whenever I am asked what my favorite fiction book is, I always answer `The Coldest Winter Ever' by Sister Souljah so to say I was excited to read `A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story' would be an understatement. Porsche is Winter's younger sister and this is her story told from her point of view. A Deeper Love Inside seems to pick up right where The Coldest Winter left off and Porsche is a young teen in a world of trouble.

Sister Souljah takes us into this young girl's journey throughout the juvenile detention system, through group homes, through being on the run, and ultimately to finding her place in the world. Porsche is her father Rickey's daughter as she is a hustler just like him. She also worships her sister Winter so it is in her blood to do whatever is necessary to survive.

Sister Souljah has an amazing ability to make the reader feel as if they are Porsche and experiencing her trials and tribulations as if they are their own. `The Coldest Winter Ever' and `A Deeper Love Inside' are considered to be of the street lit genre, but both are unlike any street lit book I have ever read. Souljah uses her unique voice that makes you seem to forget that the main characters in her books: Winter, Rickey, Midnight, Porsche, and some new supporting characters are not the most upstanding citizens in society. You feel for them, you empathize with their situations, and even if you did not grow up and/or lived in their type of environments, you somehow seem to understand their thought process.

Yes, it has been several years since `The Coldest Winter Ever' was released, but `A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story' was well worth the wait. All street lit authors need to read Sister Souljah's books and learn how to develop a story that goes beyond the typical brand name dropping genre stereotype. Oh, and let me end this by saying, Winter and Midnight make appearances in `A Deeper Love Inside' so that is a definite bonus!

A Deeper Love Inside by Sister Souljah (Porsche Santiaga story)
I'm excited about this book finally coming out too! I have been trying to be patient waiting for this book for years. I have to disagree with the Midnight series, I simply loved it and I'm sure many others who were intrigued by the mystery of Midnight. So now that we have his background I also... Read More
