Overview

Johnnie Wise was just fifteen years old when her mother sold her virginity to an unscrupulous white insurance man named Earl Shamus. Stunningly beautiful, with long naturally wavy black hair, she possessed the voluptuous body of a thirty-year-old woman. Her skin was the color of brown sugar. Johnnie had heard about Earl Shamus and his escapades among the poor black women in New Orleans. But what she didn’t know was that Shamus had quietly made several of the girls in their neighborhood his reluctant concubines when their youthful bodies ripened—she was next. Enter 1950’s New Orleans, a world of betrayal, envy, lust and murder, where everyone has ulterior motives. Take a peek at Johnnie Wise, a 15-year-old girl, being pursued by ruthless crime boss, Napoleon Bentley, who will stop at nothing to have this young beauty. Little Girl Lost will shock you right up to the very end with its revealing truths.

This was the best book I've read in years, and I read over 100 books a year. I could not put the book down and would not have if I didn't have to at times. The characters take you on a journey through their lives and there isn't a dull moment at all. This is a must read for everyone. At the end you will want more which the author will be giving us this February.

My first time reading a book where I felt all emotions humanly possible like angry, sad, happy, laugh, cry. Great book. I'm in the process of reading the other 6 that continues the story. My first time reading a book by Keith Lee Johnson and will continue and look forward to future books by him as well.

This book is so good. I just recently started getting into books about two years ago. This book is so good and hard to put down. It's a definite page turner. I read it in two days. I could have read it in one day but my infant son would not allow me :). Please get this book. It is an EXCELLENT MUST READ!!!!! U will not be disappointed.

This entire series was amazing from the first to the last! I am hoping Keith Lee Johnson has something more in store with Josephine Baptiste and more books like this...that really delve into our history and have our culture and generations to come wanting to learn more about our heritage.

Enter 1950¿s New Orleans a time full of lust, betrayal, envy, and murder.

¿Little Black Girl Lost was a Historical Fiction novel that had a lot of historical moments in time. Johnnie Wise the protagonist. Was just fifteen years old when her mother introduced her to a world she¿d never dreamt of becoming.

In the book Mr. Johnson discussed the murder of Emmet Till, bombings of all black establishments in the black wealthy part of New Orleans. Mr. Johnson also discussed the issue about lynching of the Ku Klux Klan.

Little Black Girl Lost will leave you breathless, shocked, and wanting more!
