    i loved it . it was a page turner but it was kinda short. i felt like the story went to fast and could have spent more time with Gem building her relationship with Nyeem and the family.

    Okay

    I love Ni-Ni Simone with all my heart but that book was just a little too short for my liking. I think that there could have been more elaboration on how Gem finally came to accept that she now had a loving family that cared about her deeply. I also think that Ni-Ni could have gone more into the details of Gem and Ny'eem's realtionship after they got back together. The book was good, but I'm disappointed on how short it is.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I absolutely love how Ni-Ni Simone connects with her readers. Here’s an example from this book’s dedication:

    To the Gems of the world–know that as long as there is God, there is Love, And wherever there is love, there is always hope. And wherever there is hope, there is always the ability to be anything you want to be!

    How powerful is that dedication to teen readers? Very. Then she starts the book with a poem about black beauty that was beautifully written.

    Gem and her brother have been on their own as long as she can remember. She keeps hoping that her Mom will come along and take them out of the foster system but it hasn’t happened yet. Not sure of what’s best for her and her little brother, she acts up and gets them thrown out of each and every home that takes them in…until this one.

    I laughed so much as the characters in this foster home were introduced. The aunt and uncle were eccentric and weird and gave a lightness to the story that had heavy elements. One night, Gem’s little brother climbs into bed with her and convinces her to stop being “mean” so they could stay at one home. It broke my heart knowing that she was a sixteen year old trying to keep their world together and confronting the reality that her mother never would come to rescue them. In fact, when the confrontation took place in the book I cried my eyes out.

    Under the protective eye of her foster family brother, Gem goes to a party and gets introduced to some of the students that will go to her new school. One boy in particular catches her eye but the highlight of the party is finding an old childhood friend she reconnects with. As her life finally seems to be coming together, things fall apart again and Gem has to confide in her best friend and her new foster family as she weathers the pain that comes with a breakup.

    The story flowed from beginning to end and I didn’t have any trouble keeping up with the language nuances, but did feel that some of the elements of being a foster kid were not really explained. For instance, the foster family gives Gem bags and boxes of brand new clothes without really letting us know what they do for a living but the crazy family relatives living in the house more than made up for any little tidbits we didn’t know the answer to.

    I feel that this author has made a connection with her readers that will draw them to this story.

    The best in a long time

    All this time, i have wanted a book that was good, but in my intrest. I recently baught this nook, and my main goal was to look for books that i would like, and share with others. And to be honest, Simone was exactly what i was looking for.

    Okay sooo....

    I mean I enjoyed the book. I just wish that the story was thicker. My expectations of the book was much higher than what i got. The story was mostly about falling in love in 2 months and then trying to figureout if he cheated on you. The answer to that question was answered to quickly. No suspense whatsoever. But whatever i guess ...

    This book was very good. I finished it in a day. Its a page turner if
    you really liked the rest of Ni-Ni Somone books. I enojyed every second
    of it but it ended fast and could have had more detail. But other than
    that i was very satisfied.
