    I was disappointed.

    I was really disappointed in the fact that Cynthia White never had Queen use any form of sexual protection. These days with AIDS running wild and young girls being so impressionable STDs could have been mentioned. I understand this is fiction but sex is not and nor is AIDS!

    Queen...young and wild

    Queen was a very well writen book i think. It grabs the attention of the younger audience because of the drugs sex and the similarity to a young girls life. As i was reading this book i was on edge not knowing what was going to happen next. And for me being so young i am going threw some of the things queen is going threw and that made the book even more realistic (in some ways) to me. I think all girls should read this book to show you where you could be. But all around this was a great book and i loved it. I cant wait to read part 2 hoping for a part 3.....

    A must read!

    This was a very good book. I think the writer is very talented. I was hoping that there would be and second book to this one. Queen was a very strong young person in this book. She cared deeply for her father.

    Scandalous!

    Queen is as scandalous as they come! Traumatized by her mother's abuse and her father's inprisonment, Queen goes wild, crazy and out of control, but will she get herself together? Read to find out! The drama and scandal is up there with Keisha Ervin's and Deja King's books!

    Queen

    I LOVED this book! Queen was such a mess that she couldn't help but make you feel better about the mistakes you've made in life. After everyone she trusts is taken away from her she finds herself in one crisis after another. Cynthia White has a very unique way of telling a story. I laughed. I cried. I hope there will be a sequel.

    Queen

    I've read this book three times now and I just can't get enough. Everytime I read it I discover something new that I missed the first time around. This girl is one bad Beotch! She does what she wants and tramples on anyone who gets in her way. As far as Triple Crown goes I think this is the best they put out since A Hustler's Wife.

    Urban Fiction to a while new level

    What else can I say but Ahhh-mazing?! I read a lot of Triple Crown's books, and this is so far one of the best ones they put out. For anyone who knows the importance of secrets...and deadly ones at that and love and rejection and life. Loves it.
