    Fantastic

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for writing such a great novel. I haven't laughed and cried so much in my life. I got this book for a Christmas gift and what a gift it was. When I closed Flipside of the Game I felt like I was leave family memebers behind. This book commands your attention from beginning to end. Its one of the best street tales that I have read in a long time. It deals with real life issues where anyone of us can see ourselves having to deal with. I wish there were more stars to give because I would give this novel ten!

    Flipside of The Game

    This book is quite a flavorable read. It touches on the drug issues of today, and how it can affect our children. While it has some funny parts to the story, it also is a truth revealing novel about the social ills of society. A first time novel for this author who is extremely talented.

    I truely liked this book. It was a quick, entertaining read. The characters were alive and you could get a great visual. I really loved Vera, Taj, and Aunt Cookie. This story lives in the real world and the characters could be in our families. I Like It!

    Flipside of The Game

    This book is a book about the real world and what happens to our children when their parents are on drugs and give birth to drug affected children. Flipside of the Game, tells just some of the trails and tribulations of what children can endure. This story, while it has a true storyline, will have you crying and then laughing. I truly enjoyed this book and Kudos to the talented author. I look forward to more of her writing. This genre is truly welcome to the world of literature. As, an educator I can see the non-fiction in this great fiction book.

    Flipside of The Game

    I heard about this site, came quickly, because I couldn't believe that anyone could be hatin' on Flip Side of the Game. This book has gotten so many favorable reviews especially from the Triple Crown Message Board, that I couldn't believe that any reviewer could say that it doesn't belong with the TCP family. This book is a great read. Ms. Tu-Shonda puts it down in this book. This story will have you crying at some scenes and LOL on some of the other scenes. If you haven't read this book, you should cop it. like yesterday. We support all of our authors from TCP and when they have a banger, we do the dam thang and let people know about it. We congratulate and don't hate.

    Flipside of The Game

    I picked up Flip Side of the Game, by chance, having never read anything by Triple Crown Publications, and am soooo glad that I did. I was first attracted to the beautiful cover and then I fell in love with the story line. This book is an awesome read. It truly touches a delicate subject of childrens' trail and tribulations of having been born to drug addicted parents. However, this book dealt with the subject, gracefully. It will have you howling with laughter, and then crying like a baby. The scenes are so real life. I must say that I read this book is six hours. I couldn't put it down. What a great book and I couldn't believe that this was the author's first novel. Congratulations on a great book and a new beginning for a new author.

    Flipside of The Game

    Flipside of the game is a fantastic read. No, it doesn't have any killings or shootings, however it has brought a new readership to the TCP family. This book is simply off the hook, it is a quick read, full of excitement, laughter, and if you are sensitive, it will have you crying. I appauld TCP for bringing this book to their forum. I sympathize with anyone, who feels that the staff of TCP don't know how to select their authors. I am relieved to know that they don't work for the company or else we would have never been graced with this fine piece of literature. Watch out for this author she is destined to go places. While she is new to the game, her writing will be around for a long time. She has the flavor of a Terri McMillian. I must say this book is a great read, an enjoyable read, and you won't get up until you finish it. This book gives us an inside view of how children are greatly affected by drug abusive parents. It tells of the trails and tribulations that a child who was thrown in the trash dump, had to endure in order to find herself. I give this book five stars, because there is nothing higher.

    Good book!

    I read this book in 1 day. I really enjoyed it! I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars due to the fact that I read it on my nook tablet & it wouldn't let me adjust the font :(
