This book is action packed from start to finish. You won't want to put it down until your are finished. It's urban literature at it's finest!! --Francell Jermott

I found this book to be very interesting, once I got started I found it hard to put down. I can easily see this book being modified into a script for an independent movie, complete with the "wow" factor already there. It was a quick read as it was filled with realistic life situations that kept my attention, nothing that I wasn't familiar with or heard of but it did take everything to the next level. I also like how it was written and how it all came together. It's a shame that this could be the reality for some young ladies that get trapped in that lifestyle. I give it 5 Stars for remixing a well known topic and still finding a way to make it interesting for a guy... I RECOMMEND.

I am not usually into reading fiction, but I was presented with the opportunity to read this book and I am SO glad I did. The literary balance of sexy, suspense and humor makes this book a page turner. It is not cerebral reading, so it's a great book for one who wants to kick back and take a look into someone else's life for a while. I have recommended this book to quite a few of my friends, I hope they listen, and I am anxiously waiting for the sequel.

One of the best urban novels that I have read in awhile. I read this book in 2 days. It was a page turner. I'm waiting for part 2. Very thrilling and it has a comical edge. Great job!

This was one of the most realistic page-turners I ever read. One of those books that make you so familiar with the characters that they seem like real people you actually know. The Author, Tenia Jamilla did her thing with this one!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Chanel Falls is a young naive teenage girl from the suburbs of Baltimore County. Chanel is spoiled rotten by her overly protective, street savvy brother Chuck; who grants his younger sister her every wish and command. Chanel soon finds herself alone and misguided after Chuck meets an untimely death, and she succumbs to the streets, in order to maintain the pampered lifestyle that her brother once provided. A good read with a lot of angles that keep you yearning for the outcome of the story!
