    I received this book as a gift. My first observation was that there were fewer than 100 words on a page. It reads at the level of 3rd graders. The all knowing narrator tells too much instead of showing. There are spelling mistakes and grammatical mistakes within the vernacular used. The fact that the author chooses to say Det. Nilo and Det. Scott constantly instead of writing out the word detective is rediculous. Reading this book is exhausting, it's like driving on a bumpy unpaved road with goats running all about. The words are spaced so far apart that you forget what the last one was, when you get to the next. Even the 'drama' that takes place within the first chapter doesn't capture the readers interest. And to charge $15 for this book?!!! That should be a crime!! Check these out instead: Cane River by Lalita Tademy, The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley, What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day by Pearl Cleage, Monster by Walter Dean Myers, Passing by Nella Larsen, The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B.DuBois, Jazz by Toni Morrison, Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg, Night by Elie Wiesel, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Coffee will make you Black by April Sinclair, One Flew Over a Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kasey, I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb, Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, 1984 by George Orwell. I STAND BY EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE BOOKS and many more. I just don't feel like typing them out.

    Okay Read

    I personally felt as if they were talking about Aalyiah. The book was fine until the end. The end sucked. The book had too many loose ends. It started plots and didn't finish them.
