    Finally a change of pace

    Poison Ivy is a story about a young girl Ivy Davidson who went through more struggles and abuse than most people would believe. At the young age of ten not only was Ivy burdened to keep a painful secret but she also witnessed her father brutally killed in front her. With only her mom around Ivy clung to her, yearning for her love but her mom had her own demons to deal with. Not only was she left a widow but also now she must become the breadwinner of the house. Tragedy strikes again and Ivy is left alone in the world. Forced into prostitution by a man who becomes a permanent figure in her life. Ivy only has one person she can turn to Black Pearl. Travis Fox gives writing is a breath of fresh air. This novel is not your normal urban fiction. Its packed with gritty and uncensored scenes that for some will be a hard to swallow but for others this will be a book you will not be able to put down. Ivy's life was a filled with many tragedies but it tales you every ending aint a happily ever after!

    A Hard Way to Exist

    Ivy Davidson lives with her parents in the Huntington Park of Philadelphia. To onlookers, it may appear that they have a very good life. However, that's the furthest thing from the truth. Drowning in a sorrowful sea, Ivy was terrorized as early as age five. Frightened of losing God's love, Ivy's sick father used that in order to trick his baby girl out of her innocence. Unable to feel love and happiness like others, Ivy's only comfort came via heroine. All Ivy ever wanted was love, to live, go to prom and graduate. Instead she was misled, misguided, assaulted, raped and hated. Continuously defiled, poor little Ivy never really grew up and suffers with trying to pave a way out of nothing. Will there ever be a change in Ivy's circumstance, or is she destined to be a forsaken soul? Poison Ivy is a very difficult book to read as it deals with molestation. Though I felt like Travis Vp Fox started the book with promise, he completely lost me. Although I was able to complete the book, I am left wondering if Ivy was a schizophrenic, who began to hallucinate, or if she had alter personalities. It's unclear about what was and wasn't real and how much time had honestly passed. While I didn't find Poison Ivy insufferable, I do see room for improvements.

    A reviewer

    This book seems to have it all! Something from almost every genre spun into a delicious tale. It's a tremendous...awesome book. It keeps you there, as you travel deeper and deeper through her journey! I keep reading it over and over! If you feel like you've missed something, then read it again...like a chameleon it keeps changing, weaving it's way deeper into you. I truly hope that there is a sequel. I'm addicted!
