Do you understand the level of this book. I am a high school teacher and the first book, The Coldest Winter Ever (though some material seems mature) got students reading again. I was compelled by this book and have always been compelled by the controversal wisdom the brilliant Sista Souljhah! She has reinvented herself in a fresh way. Hit them in the dome sis! I would pay nice money go get this in my hands (legally) before Oct 14! Peace
I hope so, Winter has has a lot of time to grow and mature. I think that was Midnight's issue, she wasn't ready......let's not forget about her sisters that he adopted. I wonder if the mother and father will get mentioned in this book.
Yeah its on you know lol. Winter is always thinking on her feet she already thought the dude had something to do with her Daddy getting knocked. I hope she finds love with Midnight but i dont thinks she is taking any shorts.
I think she will pay him back who knows Midnight might even help her.
I can't wait to read this book! I love Souljah and her creative way of telling a story. The Coldest Winter Ever is one of my all time favorite books. Not only was it throughly entertaining but it wasn't one of those typical books that are out now--you know the ones that don't have any substance and are all about sex.
Like Winter, I could see Midnight's appeal. I know Winter was trifling and all, but I wanted she and Midnight to get together, even if he was WAY too good a dude for her. Midnight's story is going to be a good one.
I am really excited about this book too! Here is a review by Publishers Weekly I found on Barnes and Nobel. com. It sounds pretty good.
Souljah's follow-up to her bestselling novel, TheColdest Winter Ever, is another gritty coming-of-age tale, picking up the story of Midnight (a character in Coldest Winter) as he tries desperately to navigate American culture, Brooklyn streets and the dicey business of growing up. The novel begins as seven-year-old Midnight and his pregnant mother, Umma, are forced to leave their privileged life in Sudan for a hardscrabble American existence. Midnight spends his formative years in Brooklyn guiding and translating for his loyal, loving and talented mother, helping her get a factory job while encouraging her to start a clothing line. Eventually, Midnight starts working at a Chinatown fish shop, finds love, joins a dangerous hustler's basketball league and tries to disentangle his ambivalent feelings toward romance, family and personal honor. Souljah's sensitive treatment of her protagonist is honest and affecting, with some realistic moments of crisis. Unfortunately, a slack plot and slow pacing cause serious bloat, and Souljah's distinctive prose is woefully unpolished. Frustrations aside, Souljah has obvious talent and sincere motives, making her a street-lit sophomore worth watching. (Oct.)
IM SORRY TO SAY, BUT I KNOW THAT IF THIS IS WHAT THE BOOK IS GOING TO BE ABOUT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTED.IV'E BEEN READING THE POST FOR THE LAST 6 MONTHS ABOUTH THIS SEQUEL AND IT'S OBVIOUSLY NOT WHAT THE READERS, MYSELF INCLUDED WANT. SORRY SISTA SOULJAH.
You guys should atleast give the book a chance to come out before talking junk about it. Me for one I can't wait and if it happens to be mad I will be the first to say so but atleast give a chance to be bad!
It's been a llllllloooooooooonnnnnnnnnngggggggggg time...I'm hoping she's stepped her game up and is coming with it. Never saw the "movie"...as was the talk for a while...but I'll give her a chance...hoping she'll make me proud!
