As for the book, yes it was great. The characters were really good for me in their real factor. What I loved was that they all grew up in the same low income areas, fought to stay alive and didnt get fame and fortune thrown their way. The author does an absolute service to the reader in the description of drug use, showing the consequences, and the basic cause and effect.
I think I liked Dizzy and his sister Lace more because they were not at each others side at all times. I also liked how Dizzy knew the bad things Lace was doing and let her do them. Too many books show sort of unreal relationships. His was better because he knew she was doing drugs and also too the chance that she would eventually hit rock bottom and do it on her own. As with other vices you sure cant come between an addict and her needle.
The main characters Bryan and Warren were friends who shared a few events as kids that leads to Bryan having the utmost loyalty to Warren.
The miss here for me is slight. The first is the time frame and one flashback was 2 years and one was 6 years. I think I would have loved it had it been alternating chapters of time framed references or a solid book starting with the past. The past explains the future pull between the characters so it would have been greater for me to read it that way.
A little confusion with the names too Bry & Bryan and Warren or War were bad enough but then add the character of Dizzy and a nickname of bullet and I was lost at times.
Last on my list which, like I said was slight, is an aids test. Using needles and no threat or questions was a little strange.
If you love REAL and RAW this is for you. I loved it!
Bry and Lace's story was one that I couldn't and didn't want to put down. I will warn you, the subject matter is intense and emotional...so it's not for the weak of heart. The turmoil that Michelle puts her characters through is torturous at times, but as always, she rewards them heavily when it's all said and done.
I truly do love the way that Michelle writes about life on the road for musicians/rockers. Sometimes I wonder if she secretly travels with Foo Fighters or something!! She seems to have an insight into this world that isn't hard to believe!! Sex, drugs, and so much more.
The one thing that I love the most about this story is the intensity in which Lace handles everything. Her personal failures and triumphs...I was in tears at several points during the book reading about what Lace was going through or had gone through. So young and so many crazy experiences...like I said, it's intense.
I loved watching the relationship between War and Bry change as well. Bro's before Hoe's....yeah...see how that works out.
Without giving too much away, this is definitely a story worth spending time with. I am impatiently, as always, awaiting book #2 in the series. Well done Michelle!! Well Done!!
I appreciate a prologue and I don't mind a couple jumps in time at the beginning of a book but in this one, there were too many jumps by three different characters. You were tossed back and forth in time through a character reminiscing and it made for a very disjointed story. Add in the storyline with the drug use and I was becoming rather annoyed. I usually sit and read these stories straight through the but this one I set down for a day and had to make a conscious effort to pick back up.
I give this three stars because it did get better for me. I picked it back up because I wanted to know how the author resolved the storylines. I was satisfied with the way it played out for the most part and generally, I'd say this was a good book. Just know going in that for about the first half there are jumps breaking the story flow and there's instances of drug use that appear casual but become central to the overall resolution of the story.
