    That ending tho! That ending tho! I can't believe that it ended like that. I did not see that coming. Poor Tonya just couldn't catch a break. She has gone through so much on her young life. Every time she overcomes one obstacle, and things seem to be back on track, something else is thrown in her path. I hope that things get better for her in part 2, and that Tone gets what he deserves. He made me wanted to choke him until his eyes popped out for the way that he treated her.

    Interesting read 1st time reading this author. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters. The story kept my attention. I had to know what would happen next. That ending surprised me. The only bad thing about the book was errors. That takes away from the story. I will read the next book though.

    Work of aet Black Tonya was dealt messed up had, but she played it to the fullest. Tone needs mental help. Chris is nice fit for Tonya. I hope Dre didn't mess up her young life. I feel that Dre is a pedophile and preyed on Tonya because 17 is not an adult. Part 2 needs to drop soon. Great work Patrice Balark

    Page Turner Great page turner.. Tonya endured alot from the different men in her life. I think maybe her and Monte could have had a decent relationship if she hadn't ran off. But Chris was a real gentlemen. I hope that he doesn't get caught up in any mess with Tonya. Tone was just abusive and crazy. Then that ending honey, l hope she doesn't have Aids.

    This is my first read from this author and I was impressed! Seeing the journey and transformation Tonya had from the beginning of the story through to the cliffhanger ending, I was engulfed in her story the entire time. The character development was well executed.
