If you want a good story that stays on track, keeps your interest and is straight to the point, then this is the book. Janaya takes the reader direct to the subject matter-the abusive, drugged-out, traumatized world of Marion Hayes. In this character the reader will find a bit of herself in some components of Marion. Sister, caretaker, confused, sensitive and striving to survive when the odds seem stacked against her.

The great thing about this book is that in 153 pages the author succeeded in telling a complete, simple story. From start to finish you continually capture the characters origin to her demise. It does not take you off into boring tangents or convoluted mixes of characters connected to other characters and so forth. You can read this book in one day straight -granted you can get a day alone without any disturbances.

This is an excellent short story and well worth the read

I know the author personally, and if she writes as well as she sings, then "we've got the next best thang ya'll!" I mean, she is an educated, influential black Woman with a mind of her own. She knew what she wanted to do and she accomplished it. GON JANAYA:)I will definitly be buying this book and any others she writes!!!!!

This book is great for people that like to read a novel that gets to the point without being long and drawn out. I was able to read it in four hours. I would highly recommend this book to all women and expecially teens that are looking for an easy way out of their current bad situation. I would say that Mrs. Black did an excellent job on her first project. There was a level of suspense but also a level of predictability. Keep up the fantastic work and I look forward to your next novel.

And just to think I thought it was only one of me. Boy, was I wrong. My name is Valencia Williams and I'm an author. I read Janaya's book and I LOVED it! It was able to relate to the characters as is if was I was one of the charcters myself. The authors writing touched me and I realize more than ever that I have some serious competiton. Keep up the good work Jay! I can't wait to see you on you next one.

In The Breaking Point, author, Janaya Black, takes us with Vanessa a reporter, who interviews Marion, a woman imprisoned for killing her husband.

We go on Marion's journey and what drove her to the choice she made.

I truly enjoyed Janaya's suspense and as always I can't wait for more from this author.

I could not put the book down. The Breaking Point pulled me in and I could stop reading it until the very end.
