I finished it in about 2 days, it is very interesting and entertaining. I stayed up late every night until I finished it and I loved every minute of it. The author is young and fresh and it really reveals how teen romance is in the real world. The relationships between the characters was well-defined and clear to the point. I want to read it over and over again. MUST GET IT !

    Too Fast for her own good!

    Too fast for her own good! Kyra Jones is sixteen and in love with her drug dealing boyfriend Makai, who keeps her fitted in the finest designer gear. Kyra is happy with life as she knows it in Chicago, but she gets a big surprise one day when she comes home from school. Kyra¿s single mother Geneva is offered a job in the Caribbean on Prince Paul Island and Geneva has accepted and they will be moving. Of course Kyra thinks it¿s the end of the world and is not pleased that she has to leave her friends and boyfriend behind. Once on the Island Kyra feels home sick as her mother is busy with her new job. Kyra meets Justine and falls in love, but all is not what it seems¿ Back in Chicago Kyra¿s old boyfriend has made it big in the drug trade and vows to bring Kyra back to Chicago... Read on as Kyra¿s two worlds collide in one big explosion and she realizes that leaving the world of violence and drugs is just not that easy! A good read by eighteen year old author Cassandra Carter, I love how she pointed out that sometimes it¿s not so easy to start over without paying a heavy price. And in this case Kyra was in way over her head. I was disappointed with the mother Geneva¿s part in this story¿she was sort of a grey area for me, she moves her child to a new environment and she wasn¿t really there for her. I couldn¿t really understand this mother and daughter relationship especially as Kyra was an only child. This story has plenty of dramatic twists that will keep you turning the pages.

    I loved how Cassandra Carter used slang and descriptive language thoughout the book. It Really helped develop a strong voice for the main character. This book was very good in the beginning and the middle but became unrealistic torwards the end, but I would still recomend it

    I enjoyed this book. The slang was difficult at first but became easy after a couple pages of dialogue. Great summer read.
