I read Married to a Married Man first and then followed up with this book, when it should've been Things in Between first and then Married to a Married Man, but whichever way you decide to read these novels, they will NOT disappoint! The author was able to pull me in and allow me to experience every emotion that Cameron encountered.

According to society and statistics, Cameron's future was predestined for failure, given that his mom was a crackhead and his father a pimp. In his early teen years Cameron's future looks exactly as such, until he's forced to move with his wise, educated, no nonsense, aunt, Mamma D. Down south in Alabama, Mamma D gives him the security, love, discipline, knowledge and ambition, to make it through life. As he begins to make these changes and mentally enforce these traits, his mother, Darlene, wants him back in Detroit with her; she wants a chance to prove to Cameron that she can be a good parent. In the beginning things are going great until Cameron turns 18 and the assistant living programs evicts them both. Cameron has no choice but to take shelter with his best friend, Rayshawn, and his mom choose to live with her niece, Arlene and her drug smoking/dealing boyfriend. Cameron starts to realize his mom's strange behavior and knows within his heart that she's back on drug. Proceeding on with life with the sayings of Mamma D, Cameron is determined to be the man Mamma D begged him to be.
Allow yourself to get lost in Cameron's world.... You'll definitely learn a thing or two.

I'm looking forward to more novels by this author!

Usually if a book doesn't get my attention in the first couple of chapters I put it down. This was one of those books. However,I read Married To a Married Man before this one and really wanted to learn more about Cameron. I loved the storyline, the drama, life's obstacles and success of Cameron but feel the author took too long to get to the real story line and action. There was alot of scenes that could have been left out and it wouldn't have changed the story at all. It seems that the author was trying to add stuff to fill up the pages. I still rated it a 5 Star because once I got to the real storyline, action and drama, it turned out to be a great story. I'm not sure if there is already a book out after Married to A Married Man, but I hope it is because it ties both of these books together.

Just finished rading Things In Between and I didn't know what to expect when I purchased it months ago, but OMG I'm glad I finally read this book...it truly left me wanting more. The author really made the characters believable and relatable to everyday life. You will not read this book without thinking "I know someone like this". I was glad to see that all was not lost with the odds against Cameron. I look forward to the follow up to the story and this author truly has skills brining a great story together and leaving you wanting more.

Things IN Between is an engaging fast paced read. I was hooked from page one. With real life situations, Mr. Portis created characters that made you feel their pain. He showed how one could make it despite the odds that are stacked against them. I loved Cameron's character. I enjoyed watching him grow through his struggles and beating the odds. This story was woven together very nicely and kept me wanting more.

Kuddos to Mr. Portis on his debut novel.

I liked Things In Between. I thought it was more for younger people. It was about a young man trying to make it through college. It does point out that you can do anything you put your mind to. I liked the fact that no matter what came his way he was determined to stay on track. It was a good clean read and I really enjoyed it.

Format: Paperback
A fifteen-year-old boy is home alone. But unlike the menacing kid the movie Home Alone characterizes, Cameron Johnson is a quiet teenager living in the projects. He's just trying to boil some water, using an electric skillet, so he can take a bath because once again his mother has not paid the gas bill. It has been a few days since he's seen his crack-addicted mother, who is always out searching for her next hit. At least, that's what he thinks until a white woman and a police officer take him into custody and explain that his mother has been picked up in a vacant crack house and arrested for outstanding theft warrants. For Cameron, this proves to be just the beginning of Things in Between.  

After two months in a children's home, he's finally sent to live with Momma D, an aunt who lives in Alabama. She teaches him how to use good manners, how to speak proper English, instead of slang, and constantly reiterates the value of education and saving money. When his fresh-from-rehab mother demands that he move back home with her, his world is turned upside down, and his absentee father, who lives in the same city with his wife and twin daughters, refuses to provide Cameron with any fatherly support. It's his best friend, Rayshawn, who encourages Cameron to follow his dreams and to make something out of his life. 

His struggles intensify in college when he is forced to use paycheck advances to pay his utility bills. Witnessing a brutal homicide and his mother's relapse, trying to make ends meet and making the grades becomes a daunting task. Nevertheless, the ambitious engineering student is determined to persevere. 

Nathanial Portis's debut is a touching tale about one young man's fervent effort to overcome "things in between" that are standing in the way of his success.
