Product description

About the Author

I'm not really sure what to say about myself - my real life is defiantly not as exciting as my imaginary one! I'm currently working in childcare and writing in my spare time. All my life I've dreamed of becoming an author, except when I was little and wanted to be a farmer! Besides writing, and obviously reading anything I can get my hands on, my other passion is travel. After finishing college I took a break from education to travel, visiting Mexico, Sri Lanka and, my personal favourite, Japan. One day I hope to be able to combine the two and travel while writing professionally.

This was quite the box ticking exercise.
#Fantasy #Drama #Romance #YA #Action #Dystopian

Action: 4/5
Drama: 4/5
Characters: 4/5
Plot: 4/5

This little gem is set in the future and centers around Sunny, the president's daughter.
I found this book wasn't just a piece of well-written fiction but that it was a morality compass which shone the light on segregation and injustice highlighted in the class system within the book that could easily mirror some lives of people today.
I am never a fan of telling the plot in a review, so I will suffice it to say if you love sci-fi/dystopian/romance that reaches out to touch real life then you will love Ghetto. It is well deserving of the 4* Stars awarded. This is M L Sparrow at her best. Be prepared to root for the underdogs.

I have to say that this is not my usual genre I read but once I got into this book I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
Sunny is a young intelligent girl who has lived her whole life in the safety of her world, she has an added complication as she is the daughter of the President. Sunny is a remarkable character that has survived cancer and has taught herself about technology and computers, but will a quest for a piece of equipment for her latest project change her life forever.

The Ghetto is a prison like area, were only the criminals are sent to live out their days, but events happen to Sunny that has her questioning everything the government has told them.

Sunny is working on one of her new projects and realises that she is a part missing, once she researches and finds that the exact part she requires is close but unfortunately it is in the Ghetto. Sunny decides that the part is too valuable to her project not to try and get it so she leaves the confines of her safe home and ventures into the Ghetto to recover the part. But once she arrives something happens that has her scared, she is kidnapped by the resistance.

Sin is the leader of the resistance and is closed off emotionally; he has to be hard after being born in the Ghetto, but something happens to him when he sees Sunny she infuriates him and they fight like cat and dog but something is there in the relationship.
But as the story goes on Sin slowly opens Sunny eyes to the Ghetto that not everyone is bad and that there are helpless children and innocent people who have been abandoned there. Will Sin convince Sunny enough to rebel against her own father?

Ghetto by M L Sparrow for me is a five star read.

This is a YA dystopian book and can be read as a standalone. This is the first book I have read from this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had me gripped from the very first page and I did not want to put it down and even took it with me to read whilst doing housework. It is just filled to the brim of action, adventure and romance. This book can be enjoyed whether you're a young adult or a grown up adult. It is amazingly intense and the author prepares you for the journey for you to take alongside the characters really well. If you're a fan of books like The Hunger Games then you will love this book. So many twists and turns to keep you entertained. I'm really looking forward to reading more from this author.

The characters and story development were perfectly done. This book was extremley well written and has fast become of my favourite books in this genre. I will definitely want to one click future releases from this author. This book was full of different emotions with many twists and turns in the book that will keep you guessing what is going to happen till the very end. All of them are such strong characters that they could have a book dedicated to each of them or as a whole.

Highly recommended to all friends and family. An author to watch out for.

Ghetto is the first read from this author for me and I thoroughly enjoyed this YA Dystopian, filled with action, adventure and amazing intense relationships that brew throughout. Incredibly written and draws any reader in not just from the blurb either, makes you feel you're on the same journey as the characters.
We met Sunny Beaumont daughter of the president, protected and pampered but also caged and alone. Whizz at the low hacking seen and has a project of restoring an old typewriter. This leads her to heading into the criminal world of the Ghetto where she is kidnapped and we meet the leader of the rebel fabrication Sin. I absolutely loved this character, excellently written, the more and more you read of him they more you warmed to him. As a prisoner underground Sunny believe her father knows what exactly is going on and believed he has lied to her. She soon realises that she had admiration for her captors especially Sin. Twists and turns in those last few chapter which you don't expect to see coming so that made the plot for the whole novel more worth the read.
Anyone who likes district 9 or hunger games will really enjoy this read.
Sparrow had areas of great character development and story development. This was a new author for me and I'm glad a gave it chance after the slow beginning but will be now keeping an eye out for future releases.
