    Good, quick read.

    I was always intrigued by the character Felicia Pearson portrayed in The Wire. So when I learned she had a book, I had to grab it. It didn't diappoint. She's pretty direct and clear about her life and how she lived it and she made no excuses for it. Her book was a quick read and maintains your attention throughout.

    Good book.
    *I purchased this book shortly after it was released so my review is late.

    a true story told truly

    This is her story told in her words. Very authentic. A little more about the lesbian lifestyle than I cared to know. But again, that is part of her story. I look forward to more coming from this artist/actor.

    A Fast Read

    GRACE AFTER MIDNIGHT
    Felicia "Snoop" Pearson
    With David Ritz
    Grand Central Publishing
    ISBN: 978-0-446-19519-5
    $13.99 - Paperback
    240 pages
    Reviewer: Annie Slessman

    Memoirs can include people from all walks of life. From statesmen to the homeless, people share their lives in the hope that somehow they will be remembered. This seems to be the case of Felicia "Snoop" Pearson in her memoir, GRACE AFTER MIDNIGHT. Born into the world of a street kid, she came into the world weighing only three pounds. She grew strong, not only physically, but also mentally. These were traits that served her well on the streets of East Baltimore. Her birth mother was on crack when she gave birth to Snoop and eventually the drug caused her death.

    Snoop was taken in by the Pearson's, a couple who had little, but shared what they had with Snoop. The Pearson's hoped for something better for Snoop than the street life. However, Snoop liked the street life and against their wishes, she becomes part of the life of drugs, guns and sex. Snoop is a self professed homosexual who feels comfortable with her sexuality. Unfortunately, she finds this sexual preference a problem when she ends up in prison for second degree murder.

    Her life story is not a pretty one. It is full of the harsh reality of street survival, prison life and of the people who tried to help her along the way. It was the television media that gave 'Snoop" her biggest break when she is cast as a regular on the HBO television series, "The Wire."

    What turns "Snoop" from the streets and into a legitimate life makes for some interesting reading. Don't look for pretty tales here, they don't exist.
