Overview

Who said the streets don't love nobody? Black is the novel that shatters the myth. Kaia didn't choose the streets. The streets chose her. Tossed from a broken home, Kaia is forced to learn the hard way just how grimy street life can be. Shedding her innocence overnight it seems, Kaia goes from being an often overlooked, stepped upon and crushed little girl, to a woman. She endures all of the drama that is thrown her way, sometimes catching it and sometimes being knocked flat on her ass. To aid in softening the blow is Aaron. Even street fairy tales have a Prince. Experiencing seclusion and imprisonment while locked down in street dreams and the illusion called love, is Aaron a Savior or Satan? With enemies in disguise, Kaia fights for survival and freedom, but to survive the streets could mean suffocating the freedom of her mind. Like a captured black butterfly, Kaia struggles to emerge and triumph, but victory ain't always sweet. As a matter of fact, sometimes it's bitter to the end.

This book was the best book I ever read. I can realy relate to the book being that so many girls out here are in the same situation. So this book is a great book for young girls to read who are goin through the same thing. On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a +10

Black is a story of Kaia Wesley who faces different adversities in the homefront growing up. With a mother who dispises her and a father who adored her, Kaia life became even more complicated when she witnesses her fathers death. Budding into a beautiful teenager, Kaia meets Aaron who falls head over heels in love with her and she with him. Finally having that sense of security and love that she deserves another hindrance arises that leaves her pregnant and alone to fend for herself. With the help and advice of her friends Kaia comes to stand on her own. When one of her so-called friend betrays her, she will then find out who her real finds are. As the saying goes 'Keep your friends close and enemies closer'. This novel makes you laugh, cry, angry all in one. Tracey Brown did a great job, minus the few grammatical errors that I came across throughout the book. I recommend Black to everyone, the young and the old, just simply wonderful.
