Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ghetto Luv is Mary Wilson’s first novel. The St. Louis native is currently working on her second book.

More About the Author

Entering the literary world was not an easy task for me but my creative mind wouldn't allow me to sit back and writing nothing. Pushing for what I believe in came two published novels entitled Ghetto Luv and Still Ghetto the sequel. Soon to be a junior and senior novel, No Matter and Just Can't Win will be coming your way very soon. This message has been approve by Mary L. Wilson. So sit back and let me glide you through the mean streets of St. Louis, Mo. It can get dangerous so brace yourself.

I recently purchased this book from a second hand bookstore because it seemed interesting when I read the back of the book. After about 12 pages of reading I tossed it to the side. The grammar is absolutely horrible! The stories and names are confusing and the book is unrealistic. I try to support black authors but this book is so bad. The author is funny and the story seems somewhat interesting but I just can't read this book. I can see now why this book was in the clearance bin.

At first I didn't know what to think about the book, to be honest I only read it because I know of the author. I actually cannot wait to tell her tomorrow GOOD JOB!!!!! I really enjoyed this book, with all the twist and turns throughout these young ladies life, turned out for there good. I loved the relationships Scales had with GOD, which goes to show no matter what you do and how you do it, God always knows best and what we may feel is so bad for us, HE turns it ALL GOOD, every time. THANK YOU Mary, you did an awesome job!!!!!!!!

Format: Paperback
Ghetto Luv by Mary L. Wilson

The story of three best friends: Libra, Mya, and Reesie take place in the sometimes ruthless streets of St. Louis, Missouri. The reader is introduced to the everyday happenings of the three young ladies as they ride through the streets and clubs in St. Louis living the high life. Love, lies, and murder surface as the three protagonists find themselves fighting for their lives. While the plot of the story is riveting, the art of the storytelling leaves a few things to be desired. At some points the diction is so heavily based on the dialect of the area that I found it hard to comprehend. The switch of point-of-view and questionable reliable narrating also makes the storyline a bit choppy in some areas, yet the tale is told with vivid detail which makes it an easy, interesting read. Anyone looking to get a sneak peak into how three "sistah-girls" make it on the streets would enjoy the book. I look forward to reading the second installment of the series, Still Ghetto.

Ghetto Luv was a very ghetto books. It displayed alot of slang and not enough details.

Libra is a beautiful and sexy lady with "heart". She is together with her friend, Reesie and Mya. Reesie is in a relationship with a well-know hustler, Caelin Ross. Mya is single and enjoying every bit of it.

Lamarr (Ke-Ke) is another hustler who has to make his ends meet. Tyron (Nutcase) is a trouble maker makings it hard for everyone to eat.

This summer in the Lou(St. Louis) will be the most remembered summer for this group.

This was an okay read but I believe the author will do better on her next novel. I will look for her books in the future.

This book was from the hood of St.Louis' West Side. Told the tale of a trio Mya, Libra and Reese ture gutter girls that always packed a pistol. It told about love and hate. They where sassy chicks that did'nt take no mess but could always be found in one. Libra was in lust with two men Ke-ke and nutcase, they both fell head over hills for her, ready to pay the full price for her love. So all kind of Drama unfo1lds as the story goes on. I enjoyed reading M. Wilson book and it was full of slang that could only be understood by those who live in the Lou. I would surely read a book of hers again.
