Overview

Cartier Timmons and Monya White were born to teenage mothers who were also best friends. At 15, Cartier formed her own crew aptly named the Cartier Cartel. The main and only vision of the crew; Cartier, Monya, Bam, Lil Momma, and Shanine was to do petty crimes in order to wear the flyest gear. While Monya loves boys, clothes, and money (in that order), Cartier is tired of the petty boosting to keep a few dollars in her pockets.

Always wise beyond her years, Cartier observes how the corner boys hustle drugs and figures her crew could do the same. Cartier realizes too late that her and her crew are in more trouble than they can handle. Once a rival drug-hustler gets murdered, Cartier's Cartel will need to make a life-altering decision.

Meet the Author

Nisa Santiago came bursting onto the literary scene in 2009 with her debut title, Cartier Cartel. The book garnered rave reviews and left her readers wanting more. She followed up with the sequel, Return of the Cartier Cartel – which turned into a national bestseller. The Library Journal declared that Santiago’s sequel, [Return of the Cartier Cartel] “Will keep readers hooked to the last chapter.”
Born and raised in Brooklyn, and now living in Harlem, the author is moving at full speed with her writing endeavors. Coined the Duchess of Hop-Hip lit, Santiago humbly admits, “I’m just grateful to be doing what I love as a career and not just a hobby.”

Her latest novel, Bad Apple – The Baddest Chick is slated for an October 2011 release date. The author emphatically states that her decision to start a new series instead of penning part 3 to Cartier Cartel was a brave one. “My readers love Cartier and they wanted more.” Santiago wants her readers to know that she has so many stories to tell and shows no signs of slowing down. Dirty Money Honey is an anthology with her peers, Erica Hilton and Kim K., Melodrama Publishing’s new trinity of authors.

The book was good from the beginning. The lives the girls lived remind you how kids today take the wrong road. The book also shows how parents play a role in the actions that your take. It is definitely a cycle. The book was also about redemption and loyalty. Over all it was one of the better books that I have read in a long time. I was glad to see that it was not the typical story. I cried some, I was surprised a lot, I even stopped to think about my own actions and how they affect others. Pick up the book, it is a good read.

Worth the read

So many turn around's, definitely kept me intrigued and wanting more. In a way I was relieved Monya was caught slipping. Cartier learned her lesson and if the girls would have followed suit their lives would be heading in the right direction as her's is. All in all this was a great read. Can't wait to read part 2!!!!

"Cartier Cartel" chronicles the lives of a group of female friends from the 'hood' who survive by stealing clothes and other merchandise from high-end stores. Cartier, the main character, is the group's leader. The book starts with her tense relationship with her unfit mother who seems to be more interested in partying than seeing about her teenage daughter. Nisa Santiago does a good job developing the characters as they go from their teenage years to their adult years. However, the relationship between the girls seems to be nonexistent towards the middle to the end of the book. The story then shifts towards a love triangle involving Cartier. Overall, it was a good story; full of drama and a a few twists and turns. Reviewed by: Jermaine
