This was a true pageturner.Kept me reading and wanting to get the end quickly. The end was a bit predictable,but overall a really good book.

The story was addicting, although incredibly ridiculous. I like that it goes into issues that mixed people face, and that it has a well-developed gay character. But I was not a fan of the dialect use or the overdramatic, adjective-heavy writing style.

Just one example: "For the first time in weeks, Juanita's stomach heaved and bucked, unaided by her sweeping fingers. Scalded by an ocean of tears, she retched and swooned as she scrambled down the flights of stairs, yanked open the heavy glass door

"Chocolate Sangria" was a brutally honest book about stereotypes and racism, loving oneself and finding oneself. Tracy Price-Thompson created a well-woven tapestry of characters and gave them life. I gave it three stars, instead of four because the book is extremely graphic, and I felt it took a way from the beauty of the writing. Other than that, I thought it was an amazing read.

What a book, at first you think it's going to be about a love story, but it's also about a drama at the same time and the characters in it dance back and forth as you rush to read each chapter to see how it's going to end...I love what happens in the end. This story has betreyal and rape and tales of boys being gay, and all that... you'll love it.

This is a well-told story that really kept my interest. I really couldn't put it down. I will definitely be checking out other titles by this writer!
Surprises unvailed throughout the story. Deviations from the expected enhanced through "mini-stories" from each main character.
