Overview

What if "O" suddenly gave every poor person in the impoverished streets of America a chance to be rich? In, GOD, I RESPECT YA GANGSTA by Teresa Rae Butler, winning participants of this story must prove low-income status to claim winnings.
Rainy Dae Harris picks up where dead Coraz, a.k.a. Rainia Harris has left off by organizing a lottery for the poor with famous, talk-show host, Ophelia Windsor, 'Baddest in the Windy.' They are only giving the money to the unfortunate, meaning anyone can buy a ticket however you must be poor to win. Miss Harris helps fix individual's credit and educational problems alongside their winnings with an assisting program, RE-RAISE 4 PRAISE.
It is a story within a story that goes even deeper as to why and how many people suffer in the struggle. Join Billy Jacksin, the pimp; Ms. Jack, the cross dresser; O.B., the drug dealer; Anmarie, Coraz's mother who used to be just the white stripper with three, mixed kids for an extreme adventure.
You as a reader will find ghosts, the State Street suicide, murder, tremendous wealth and poverty, all of the spirits that take them on this journey of death for a glimpse of eye opening revelations about God, world love, forgiveness and more that are sure to make you laugh until you cry, cry until your eyes swell, get so upset and finally walk away from the novels feeling POWERFUL! There are also over twenty illustrations that help to bring this fierce title to life. If the belief in GOD does not grab you from the beginning, then HIS unbelievable ending will!

This book was so good that my co-workers and I had all been called for a special reprimand meeting concerning how serious we were about our jobs. Although we were at the vending machinces conversing, it was our obnoxious outbursts and squeals that got special attention. The illustrations were great! We are professionals, but this book did that to us. Teresa Rae Butler has indeed captured a story within a trilogy that makes up for alot of bad urban lit. So many of our people's stories are characterized as just smut, but Butler has a world vision of peace that is undeniable. Her characters will make you sob, laugh to the point you may get fired from your position at a firm, or just make you lie awake at night thinking about your own short-comings. I truly cannot wait for Butler's next book, and I do admit that I tell people of it whenever I get the chance. It has become apart of my life now and if I had the galaxy at my disposal, I would give this book all of the stars in it, and then some! Bravo, Butler....Bravo!!!!!
