The Queen of New York based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I was really looking forward to reading this novel after reading the acknowledgements. Sometimes acknowledgements will give you some type of outline on who the author really is. Visa's foreword had me wanting to rock with my afro puffs. After I started reading, I politely turned my puffs into a nice and neat ponytail. Visa opens with Sadon and his homie, Jamil who are from the outskirts of Miami. As many people will say and if you have ever been around, the streets are the streets no matter where you go or where you're from. Sadon felt no different after his one-way ticket landed him in the bustling city of New York. Dressed in his colorful Miami clothing, country talk and gold teeth, his first encounter with his guy, North, couldn't have been sweeter. North is all about the projects. Living, sleeping, hustling and smoking are Shay-North's main concerns. Pouring out a little liquor for his dead homies only add to why he loves the projects so much. Meeting his down south friend, 'Don,' only makes their hustle for getting money inseparable. Nina Nunez is as beautiful as they come. With her tomboy attitude and quick mouth, it is no wonder why Don instantly fell for the Latina goddess. Having dealt with her parents being in the life of drugs and alcohol, she wants no part of it and Don is slowly testing her patience and love. When things couldn't get any sweeter for the trio, the haters come out to play and will soon bring tragedy to the doorsteps of all present. Nina finds that what she has hidden in her past will come out and eventually crown her THE QUEEN OF NEW YORK. I know SKP will get tired of me saying GET AN EDITOR, but hey, it wouldn't be MY review without me informing you. Any who, Visa did a decent job with developing her characters and not making everything into a run-way show you know Prada, Gucci, Presidential Rolexes, etc. Joe Joe did a good job with adding her to his team.
