I finished it in about 2 days, it is very interesting and entertaining. I stayed up late every night until I finished it and I loved every minute of it. The author is young and fresh and it really reveals how teen romance is in the real world. The relationships between the characters was well-defined and clear to the point. I want to read it over and over again. MUST GET IT !

So good that the book alone should be made into a series

I first brought this book when i was 14 years old. I am now 18 and i can still say this is one of my most favorite books. Whenever i need something to do i read this book. I truly wish there was a second part to this book! It shows the burning passion of real teenage love. It shows adults that teenagers love is the real deal. It is a true page turner and i guarentee you wont want to put this book down until the last page is read and even then you will stare at the book wanting more.

I loved this book so much. When I really like a book I cant put it down, and Fast Life was one of those books. There was so much suspense, and danger. The romance between the characters mad it so much better. This is a definate must read.

Kyra Jones is a teen who knows everyone and everything in her hometown of Chicago and who everyone wants to be, while her Boyfriend is the head runner drug-dealer of the streets. Kyra thinks she has everything going for her until her mom annouces their moving out of the country to an island. So Kyra knows her life can't get any worse, until she meets a boy on the island, but tries not to gain feelings for him because she knows she still is in love with her boyfriend from back home. But one day Kyra finds out that her moving was the best thing for her friend and boyfriend because they decide to have an affair. Kyra then allows the boy on the island to become her true lover and knock downs any haters and people in her way to break up the relationship, until she catches him lieing to her and kissing his ex,and she then breaks down and makes some hasty decisions. And to make matters worse, her ex boyfriend from Chicago came back to get her after keeping his word, and with so much in her mind she decides to take his invitation. Once she finally reaches Chicago again she is so happy that she's back where it all started, but what she doesnt realize is that alot of things have changed since shes been gone and the only thing she could do is get caught up in the Fast Life!

This book was good , It's one of those books that you refuse to put down after reading each page. I read it in the 7th grade and after reading it twice I haven't forgotten not one part of this book , at least I think so. I as well read ' PUSHING PAUSE ,' but It does not compare to Fast Life. Though I wouldnt necessarily recommend this book to a student in high School especially those who enjoy challenges. For fun ? Of course. I wish there was a sequel I'd read it any day !

Growing up attuned to the hustler lifestyle, Kyra Jones goes from spoiled princess to being dropped abruptly into reality's many offenses. 'Fast Life' is Carter's first novel filled with an intensity that won't let you put the book down. An impressive read for all those looking for a ride-of-your-life storyline.

This book was so good that every once in a while I have to read it again. Carter did a great job on this book, I just wished she could have done a sequel to it.
