    One of the More Believable Urban Novels

    This was my first read by this author and I was satisfied with the read. I found the male characters more interesting and was irritated with the female characters which might be a bit odd since I am female. The main character's attitude was tiring. This story was much more conceivable than some of the other urban novels out there. Mr Holmes did a great job for a first time author.

    It was OK

    After reading books from Zane, Sister Souljah, Noire and countless other amazing writers, I found that this book was just OK. Since finishing the book, I regret spending $10 on it. It wasn't a bad read but I absolutely could not stand Netta nor anyone else in the book for that matter. Read this at the library for free if you MUST.

    Unforgettable

    I read this book as a sophmore in high school, and even now as a a college senior I can't stop thinking about it. I'm an avid reader, yet this is the one book that has remained with me as long as it has. For some reason, I've found myself wanting to read it over and over. Shannon Holmes is an excellent author. With his tough background, unforgettable lifetime experiences, and great accomplishments his litereature hits you in the most unimaginable ways. B-More Careful dicsusses the life of a street-wise Baltimore woman who soon discovers what life is like once the streets get the best of her. This novel isn't like most urban litereature I've read. Something about it is very undeniably different, hard-hitting, compelling. I can't wait to read it again!
