About the Author

Tanika L. Lynch was born on July 8, 1978 on the East side of Detroit, Michigan to her 15-year-old mother, Gyra, and her much older father, Lloyd, who left before she was born. Tanika is the eldest of three siblings, and also the black sheep of the family. After being inflicted with severe abuse, abandonment, betrayal and rejection from the hands of loved ones, she was forced out onto the streets at the age of 12 to make a new home. In order to survive, she was introduced to the dope game. It wasn’t long before Tanika was caught up in the street life, and all the drama that came along with it. This life eventually landed her in prison on murder charges at the age of 16, and pregnant. The penitentiary became her turning point. Within two months of incarceration, Tanika received her G.E.D., attended college full time with hopes of receiving a degree in psychology, received vocational certificates in Culinary arts and Building trades and pursued her life long dreams of becoming an author, after endless encouragement from a prison guard. Today, Tanika is a 27-year-old reformed woman whose main goal is to reach the hearts of others through her writing. Tanika has plans to devote her life to helping misunderstood youths upon her release. She feels as though she had been there, done all that. Tanika is a divine example of God’s mercy and grace!

Tanika Lynch deserves a standing ovation for this captivating tale of misery that engulfs you and pulls you through the wringer with the central character, a young abused teenager named Kamone. Kamone has suffered just about any type of abuse you can imagine but holds true to her lifelong love for her siblings to fight until the very end to assure their well being and safety. She will pull at your heartstings making it skip a few beats, you will become breathless, matter of fact, you will have to put the book down a couple of times to get yourself together. That's just how good this book is!

Tanika's story seems like one of the bunch, but, I assure you the journey she takes you on will be one of the most memorable ones that you will ever have the privilege of traveling.

Tanika Lynch most definitely deserves 10 stars for this wonderful literary piece of art! I applaud you Ms. Lynch and will mos def be in line for your future endeavors!!!!!!! Your light is shining! Many blessings to you and yours!

Format: Paperback
THIS BOOK WAS ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD, AND ALOT BETTER THAN I EXPECTED. THIS BOOK WAS HARD FOR ME TO PUT DOWN ONCE I GOT INTO IT. THIS BOOK IS ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL NAMED KAMONE, WHO HAS LITERALLY BEEN USED AND ABUSED BY EVERYONE WHO WAS ANYONE IN HER LIFE. HER MOTHER WAS AN HIV POSITIVE, CRACK HEAD, [...], WHOM WAS JEALOUS OF HER DAUGHTER KAMONE. SHE LEFT KAMONE AND HER HER TWO SIBLINGS, KAMONE WAS FORCED BY HER MOTHERS MADAME (PIMP) INTO A LIFE OF [...]. SHE WAS MANIPULATED TO GO MAKE MONEY OR HERSELF AND HER SIBLINGS WOULD BE REPORTED TO CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES AND BE SEPERATED. KAMONE WENT OUT INTO THE MEAN STREETS, AND INDULGED IN COCAINE TO COPE WITH TURNING TRICKS, THE OTHER [...] ON THE BLOCK WERE JEALOUS OF HER BECAUSE SHE WAS YOUNG, PRETTY , AND FRESH MEAT. ONE OF THE OTHER [...] ON THE STREETS SET KAMONE UP TO BE BEATEN AND RAPED, AND INJECTED WITH HEROIN , AND SHE WAS LEFT FOR DEAD IN A DUMPSTER. KAMONE WAS FOUND BY A MAN NAMED LUCCI. LUCCI TOOK KAMONE IN AND SHELTERED HER, AND GREW TO LOVE HER. LUCCI WAS A BIG TIME DRUG DEALER, WHO LAVISHED KAMONE WITH EVERYTHING, AND RAISED HER TWO YOUNGER SIBLINGS AS HIS OWN CHILDREN. LUCCI WAS THE ONLY MAN KAMONE EVER MET WHOM DIDN'T ABUSE HER AND THROW HER OUT FOR DEAD! LUCCI'S TWIN BROTHER DAVID, IS A REAL MANIAC. HE HIMSELF IS THE DEVIL IN SHEEPS CLOTHING. HE IS A COP, AND INSTANTLY FORMS AN ATTRACTION TO KAMONE, AND DECIDEDS SHE WILL BE HIS WOMAN. HE IS SICK AND TWISTED AND WILL MANIPULATE, AND DO ANYTHING, INCLUDING ABUSING HER TO HAVE HER, AND HE IS WILLING TO LIE CHEAT STEAL AND EVEN KILL HIS BROTHER TO GET TO HIS WOMAN.OVERALL THIS WAS A FAST PACED READ. IT WAS SUSPENSFUL AND HAD BIZARRE TWISTS THAT YOU DONT SEE COMING! I THINK READERS WILL ENJOY THIS BOOK, I DID!!

Format: Paperback
This was a quick read that kept one fairly interested, but it was just so dam# depressing! Girl grows up in a screwed up environment, girl makes escape, girl meets boy but can't cast off ghetto upbringing, girl falls back into old lifestyle, girl finally gets it together...happily eva after! I had to put it down, and I never picked it back up. On the one hand, I couldn't stand reading that much heartbreak and pain; on the other hand, I couldn't relate to someone making the same dumb mistakes. It just depressed me so much (and pissed me off) that Kamone couldn't make some better decisions. I know that a lot of people emulate what they see, but Lord Have mercy...that was just too much!

I can't say enough about this book..at first I thought ok here is the same ol TCP book..but I definitely judged wrong. Ms. Lynch has taken us into Kamone's world..who endured and struggled through a horrible childhood...she was used abused and mistreated but she still persevered and did what she had to do to make sure her and her siblings had just the basics...kudos to Ms. Lynch for writing a story that you could relate to and identify with..it wasn't about the bling or material items..just one persons desire to be genuinely loved and not have to give anything in return..if you haven't read this book..don't let the title fool you..this is a hot joint that needs to be read..much love and continued success Ms. Lynch!!1
