Overview

College life has been described as the “best of times and the worst of times”…and in this comical, romantic, and dramatic tale of three African-American female HBCU students in Atlanta, Georgia that statement will prove to be true. Chelle was raised in a two parent home with a seemingly normal family yet has been harboring a secret that continues to play a huge role on every decision that she makes. Shona on the other hand, is the life of the party, always the center of attention which coincides with her cheerleading scholarship and laundry lists of social engagements. Last but not least, we have Trina short, spunky, flip-lipped and almost too much to handle! She has the quick wits of a New York Hustler and the sweet talk of a Georgia Peach. Will these girls find what their looking for as they hurry through life….while telling their future to wait.

I love the book. I read it in one sitting because once I started I could not put it down. The story is detailed enough that I can visualize each part of the story without being overwhelmed by too many details. I like that life was not automatically easy for Chelle just because she was saved because we all have to deal with the difficulities of life. I could not believe that Shona went back to Ramsey after he beat her! Can't wait for the next book, keep up the great writing!!!
