About the Author

Angie Jones hits hard in this first-hand account of growing up in the inner cities of California. With plain talk, Struck probes with deep questions, attacking head-on the aged patterns of behaviors that have held the young Black culture in bondage; such as abuse, relationships, skin tones and other factors ordinarily used to determine self-worth. Gleaning bits of her own life, she offers a real and raw heart-cry to her people for steps take new generations out of the hood mentality, up to higher ground: The first step, to face yourself. Inspired through single motherhood of her twin girls, and works, such as Bill Cosby's Come on People, Jones found the courage to face off with herself. This unique insight gave her the ability to not only identify self-destructive choices common in her culture, but also see clearly in what those choices are rooted. At the same time, she could sift through and lift up the beauty in her life and cultivate a new attitude in herself. The resulting blueprint is Struck. This mini-biography breaks the ice into a series to be expected from Jones, as she embarks on a journey to resound this heart-cry to, primarily, at risk youth of the African-American culture. Struck hopes to open doors into public speaking at high schools, juvenile halls, prisons, colleges and other arenas to reach every willing ear possible and bring change with her message: Everyone has "the potential to be phenomenal." It's what you do with that potential that makes or breaks the opportunity. Visit Angie at www.angiejones.org

Miss Jones is very intelligent, "down-to-earth", relatable to everyone regardless of race. This book trully woke me up, I had share with my friends so i bought another. I can't wait for the next book. I'll make sure to read anything else she comes out with.

As an avid reader, there's no doubt that this was an interesting read! The author is an up and coming force to be reckon with. The writer has a way with her reading audience that leads you to trust her as a reader. She assures her readers that she is just like them. Many issues are brought up throughout this read that affects the black community, today. The issue of love, loss, relationships, having to grow up early, living in the hood and being color struck are some of the topics highlighted. I would love to see the author go into more depth regarding these topics in another book. She would really get some hard, straight forward discussions going in the black community, especially between black women and men. I would definitely read every book by Angie Jones, for she has so much great potential and relates to her reading fans, well. These are the many reasons I've recommended this book to family and friends. The talent of this author is striking and I am looking forward to many more inspirational writings from her!
