    Okay read...

    This was a decent read. There were a ton of real life scenarios that were jumbled into this book. It was kind of busy at times but fairly easy to follow. I will likely read the sequel but only when it's available formy Nook.

    Great Read!!!

    I love this book from cover to cover! I found it hard to put down and actually read it in a day. This novels sheds light on the issues of crack addiction, homosexuality, HIV/AIDS and most of all true friendship. I think she did an outsatnding job of putting together this story and helping you relate to the characters in the's almost like I knew them. I look forward to reading more from Sereniti.

    I Wasn't Addicted,

    Just one little taste was all it took to turn Tiny into a full-blown crackhead. She went from valedictorian to turning tricks or come what may be just to get the next hit. With the help of her best friend, Frenchy, Tiny gets cleaned up. Before she knows it, her body has filled back out and she's once again looking like her old self. It's this Tiny that captures the interest of Roscoe, a local hustler with baggage. Unfortunately for Tiny, he becomes her new drug of choice.

    While I appreciate the author's efforts to deliver a cautionary tale and shine light on issues such as HIV/AIDS awareness, drug addiction, abuse and homosexuality, her efforts fall short. FEENIN' is disjointed and sorely lacks development, focus and direction. I waded through the first half of the book waiting for the story to begin. After eleven chapters of first-person narrative, it flips to third-person, only to flip back the next chapter. Several chapters later, there is another flip in narration. Again only for one chapter.

    The writing is thin and very basic. I couldn't connect with any of the characters. I had no feelings for them and did not really care what happened to them. The ending is rushed and unbelievable. The epilogue reads more like an author's note.

    To its credit, FEENIN' is a quick read, but that's because there isn't much to digest. I didn't downright hate this book, but I certainly did not enjoy it. Had it not been for review, I doubt I would have completed it. With so many books saturating the industry today, FEENIN' will quickly fall by the wayside. A sequel is ill-advised.
