I picked up this book at a Hair and Beauty Show in London and had never read one of her titles before. When I finished it I went straight on the internet frantically searching for more of her fiction titles. My 3 sisters and my cousin also couldn't put the book down. It was a masterpiece. Realistic, sad, funny, "street" & oh so real. I laughed with Winter, I cried with Winter, I boosted with Winter, but most of all I wanted to hunt out Sister Souljah and beg - even pay her! to get more material out there. When you finally manage to put this book down you will find yourself oh so vexed that you've come to the end! 5 stars just doesn't even do her justice!
