Now in college and on her own, Miya must navigate through not only learning about relationships and life, but dealing with everything while dying from AIDS.
Miya is a remarkable young woman. Though she makes some pretty huge mistakes on her own, she deals with everything thrown at her. I laughed and cried as I read this book. Definitely a tear jerker kind of story with such an important message. I am rating this book 4 stars because, like I said, it’s a first book by a new author and she is still finding her voice. I would definitely recommend this book.
I'll Have the Last Laugh by Deshaunda Deas
I was given an ARC of this book for the purpose of an honest review.
Upon reading this book, I have to say it was a slower start than I would have preferred, but in a literary sense, not a bad one. It took me a while to get wrapped up in the lives of Miya, Tiffany, Mike, Calvin, Bobby, Mr. And Mrs. Black, Aunt KayKay, and Antwoine. However, once the author picks up steam, she really seems to snatch your attention.
Personally, I'm not one for a lot of colloquiasms and didn't quite 'get' some of the phrases, but that helped he really relate to Miya as she was heavily sheltered. Lol.
Some of the 'drama' between characters was something out of my preference as well, but again---from a literary point and having an idea of where the author might have been taking this, it was well-executed.
From about one-third of the way in, I found myself really drawn to Miya's situation and her friendship with Mike. From there, the author had me.
Watching Miya, whom herself was struggling with things beyond the scope any child should be forced to face, grow into a force to he reckoned with as she suffered her own losses and learned to cope was-----well, there's not a lot of words to describe it. I was thoroughly impressed.
This novel tackles some real world issues that we all have seemed to become desensitized to. Just because those with illnesses have managed to get equal treatment under the law, it does not mean they receive equal treatment from society.
Ms. Deas, on behalf of Breaking the Barriers Book Blog, I'd like tp congratulate you on a very socially poignant novel and wish you only the best success.
I was gifted this ebook in exchange for my honest review. Opinions in this review are my own.
A little slow to start off but glad I stayed with it and finished the book out. Turned out to be a pretty good book. What takes place behind the cover of this book is for one to find out... Not exactly what you would think..
