I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a very suspensefull book you won't know what the next chapter may bring. What I liked about the book the most was that sinclair realized it wasn't about revenge it was about her seeking her own happiness while in a not so happy situation

This book is a great read. I admit, when I first took a glance at the title, I really did not know what to expect from this book. After reading the first page, however, I was immediately drawn in to the intense plot. The book's use of explosive language and a willingness to tell things exactly how they happen instead of using euphemisms keeps you attached to this book. I literally could not stop reading it. In the book, one of the main characters, Aliette, sleeps with a married man named Vernon. She then unknowingly befriends Vernon¿s then wife, Sinclair. It turns out that Sinclair finds out about who Aliette really is, and decides to take action. Through all of this drama, Sinclair and Aliette become very good friends. Sinclair keeps Aliette¿s head on straight, because Aliette has so many issues. After reading the first chapter, I realized how relevant the title of this book was. Furthermore, this book very closely relates to the lives on many people today. So often, people are put into harmful relationships, but they are often too afraid to get out of them. This book teaches people to stand up for what they deserve, and to not let anyone take advantage of them. In addition, this book teaches people to love everyone, no matter how bad people may treat you, and good things will come to you. Even though Aliette slept with Sinclair¿s husband, Sinclair still took Aliette in as a friend, and analyzed her situation. Even though she let her aggression out on Aliette, Sinclair still showed Aliette how to behave like a real woman, and to have respect for herself and others. It focuses on the value of family, being that Sinclair¿s sanity in all of this turmoil was due, in part, to her mother¿s advice. Sinclair¿s life eventually becomes positive again, and she decides to start her life over, erasing all of the negativity that she lived through. I strongly encourage everyone, reader or nonreader, to pick up a copy of this book. It teaches very important life lessons, and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. I promise that once you take a glance at it, you will not be able to put this book down. The book can relate to people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I know you will too.

This book was a total let down, the dialogue between the characters was not enough to make you feel as if you knew them, the chapters were too short! I must admit i laughed like once here or there..but seriously I do NOT recommend you go out and buy this..3 books I'm going to check out are Without Saying Goodbye by Kendra Willis, Triangle of Sins by Nurit Folkes, The Bridge is Over by J.Sebastian I heard they are really good!!

Whew Lawd is all I can say after reading this book! Talk about issues, this book contains probably the biggest one of all. What would you do ladies, if your man was cheating on you and you happened to come in contact with the woman who ruined your relationship? Would you react immediately or would you bide your time for the right opportunity to react? Meet Sinclair, a woman scorned and Aliette, a woman who has many issues including sleeping with married men. Not what I expected just by glancing at the title, She¿s Got Issues is a well-written exposé on the feelings experienced in a relationship where infidelity has occurred. There are mental issues for both women, but that¿s expected when dealing with a broken heart. While reading, I went through anger with Sinclair, hurt and pain, and the desire to destroy Aliette¿s life in the same manner in which Aliette destroyed hers. That¿s keeping it real to me. Sinclair is probably the only true friend Aliette has. Aliette isn¿t able to maintain a healthy relationship with anyone, not family, not friends, nor men, so Sinclair is her savior in many respects. Certainly she isn¿t able to view this in their relationship, but as the book is so aptly titled, She¿s Got Issues. Through the plot twists is an interesting and captivating read. Readers will find themselves wondering what is going to happen next. At every turn of the page, something subtle but necessary to the plot occurs which makes this book hard to put down. Torn between the two characters, the reader becomes intimately involved and to me that is what makes a dynamic story. Dealing with infidelity, and the journey to discover ones true self, this book is power packed. Stephanie Johnson has a book that she can be proud of. Urban Books has a book they can be proud of, Carl Weber-keep doing your thing.
