If you have been, or have kids that are, or curious to find out, how young adults bond through love, hate, pain, and laughter these two books are a great place to start. I can't begin to tell you how awesome this story is, as well as a great public announcement to the prevention and education about HIV and AIDS. I had mix feeling with the relationship between Jermaine and Cara. The brother has a stout heart that's for sure. I would love to see Memo break Seleste down even further by getting her to submit to yet another unthinkable act. I hope the author decides to continue the journey. If not in my mind Seletse will end up marring Memo and he'll knock her-up every year for five years. To the author, I really appreciate your passion for writing after you explained the tattoo on your arm. If the world didn't have people like you, it would never change. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and imagination with me and so many others. Great job!!

Great book about young people trying to become adults in this crazy world. Reading it you come across the same people you see in real life. The guy who doesn't care about anything but himself the young, confused girl who makes horrible decisions and the main character you can't help but like but who has to deal with a horrible father. The author takes on some issues that most people would rather forget about in our MTV society and by the end you're reminded of people you know in the real world.

Round Trip, the follow up to Change For A Twenty, was a great read. It started where the last one left off and in this book you were put in each of the characters minds. You were able to see thru there eyes how each one of them saw things. My favorite character in the book was Memo. He was very high on family values and that is something that this society has strayed away from. There was some things that I didn't see coming and that is what makes this book a great read. If you haven't read the first you should get both so that you can read them back to back because it was, for me, a long wait for the second. Compared to the first book you can see the growth in this young and talented writer. This series should be given to anyone that is going to attend or already attending college. They both have positve messages that should be shared with our youth.

'Round Trip' was an excellent book which I could not put down until I had finished it completely... SERIOUSLY! Shamontiel Vaughn delivers a continuation narrative to her first book ('Change for a Twenty') but with climactic events and closure. The author's tale of friendship, which includes numerous plot twists, keeps the reader persistently interested and yearning for more. If you have read 'Change for a Twenty', you have already become familiar with Vaughn's amiable characters. In addition to the interesting aspect of this story, the author brings to light (via the sequence of events) the impactful social crisis of AIDS. As the readers progress through the chapters of this book, they are challenged to reflect on the AIDS epidemic (prevention, transmission, life after acquiring the disease, etc.). I think this book is defiantly a worthwhile reading experience and I TOTALLY recommend it. Ms. Vaughn is a very talented emerging author and I look forward to her future publications.

I read both Change for a Twenty and Round Trip. Round Trip had me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions that wouldn't end until I got to the end of the book. I felt like I was reading about my own friends and family. I was so into the book, I couldn't go to sleep until I finished it! I actually felt like I was watching a movie LOL I laughed, I gasped, I cried, I cheered!! It was a very good read. Can't wait for the next Shamontiel Vaughn classic!! Keep up the good work!

I love this book! After the main characters meet up at the airport the story takes off. What I liked was each chapter was written through the eyes of one of the players. Author, Shamontiel, was able to sound like a guy when telling the tale through a guy's eyes. Each of the young adult's personalities shined through the writing and I could easily visualize their looks through descriptions. The story did bring tears to me eyes at certain times. I truly hated for it to end, because it was like saying goodbye to new friends. What I did not know was that I would meet them all again in Ms. Vaughn's 'Change for a Twenty'. That part of the college kids lives came first, but 'Round Trip' gave that background info, so that 'Round Trip' could be read independently of 'Change for a Twenty'. It is a tale with a timely social message, but not at all preachy. The tale was so engrossing I could not put it down until I read it to the end.
