"Excellent book. A definite page turner from start to finish. Blu, Ashanti, and Sandra are three women from different backgrounds. Each of the women has high aspirations that land them on a college campus together and form a lasting friendship with one another."

RAWSISTAZ Reviewers
"BABIES' DADDIES was filled with real-life situations; situations that make you sit down and think about the choices we make in life. Marlene does a great job of meshing the worlds of the three women, guiding readers through the value of friendship, loyalty and being true-to-self. This is a definite inspiration for anyone whose life has been plagued with disappointments."

This was an very intruging story of the continuation of Sandra from Jamaican Girl! I love it and the other characters were exceptional clever and determined to suceed based on the hand that was dealt them. A really good urban drama novel.

I did a lot of page jumping to get past all the craziness and confusion in the beginning. I don't know what I was expecting from the cover and the summary but I didn't get it. I cannot imagine wanting to keep a baby that is the result of rape. The story just left me wanting more.

It took me awhile to get into, but once I did I was hooked. I suggest that you read Jamican Gaal first though, so you know whats going on with Sandra.
