What I understood about this novel...

First of all this is a urban read that I thought this author has written very well for her readers. Unique has really had a hard life however she makes it through be sold to a cartel in Mexico and being put in prison after she makes her way back to the U.S. This author really knows how to get and keep your attention as you will be found turning the pages quickly to see what is happening next in this read. Unique best friend for life Teeydah and her new boyfriend Kennard who was a boxer promoter seemed to be all she needed until Unique's life is turned around again. Are their old enemies trying to get back at Unique again? The author really gives the reader some read that seems to pop off the script with there being so much action going on. There is so much drama going on, hospital visits and yes a little bit of it all. This was indeed a different kind of read for me. A lots of this read I didn't understand just what all was going on but toward the end I think it all comes together for me. No, I am not from the streets but being the avid reader that I am I try to read a little bit of it all and this is one that I did have to re read many parts of it over to try to truly understand this author's reasoning to that particular situation. The boyfriend/fiancé Kennard did seem very concerned with not knowing of Unique's past but he still seemed to show her love. All I can say is that I would not want to be one that messed with Unique, Teeydah, their prison buddies or Kennard. The characters in the novel are all off the chart...being well portrayed, some are strong and definitely believable in a weird sort of way. I did find a few of the characters very dark and down right scary. Will revenge be enough for Unique or does she have something else planned for her old enemies? I am only left thinking that maybe this could happen in a real world, yes our world! Oh well, I guess we will have to wait for this author's next series to see what she has planned for Unique. ( )
