Nisa Santiago you did a number on this book, it was truely a page turner!!! When I first saw the 510 pages I was like omg I will be reading for days and once I started reading it you had my undivided attention...lol It was a very active book with no confusion on anything. I really enjoyed this book and i am so ready to begin with Coca Kola to find out what happens next with the two sisters. I was sad and couldn't believe the choices they made but that is what kept me on my toes and wanting to fi ...more

Night and Day

Seventeen-year-old twins Apple and Kola are like night and day. Although identical in looks, they have different personalities. The two cannot stand one another and are always at each other's throats, arguing and fighting. Apple is the more laid back twin. Kola, on the other hand, is wild and loud, making moves of her own.

When a tragedy strikes their family, the twins are devastated. Unfortunately, Kola is angry because she knows that Apple had a part to play in it all. Apple knows

This was my first novel by this author and I wasn't impressed. The story started off good. I loved the character development on Apple, Kola, and Nichols, but somewhere along the book, all that came to an end. In the beginning, I found myself rooting for Apple and disliking Kola, but oh how that quickly changed. Apple became a dumb bish that I couldn't tolerate too much longer. Also, in May, if I remember correctly, Apple or Kola, told someone that their birthday was in two months. Au

Kola is the go getter who has a scheme and has aligned herself with a notorious street team while Apple is naive and daydreams about a baller elevating her to wifey status. Apple shuns Kola for her wild reputation in the streets while Kola views Apple as lazy although the two didn’t always get along they had each

Nisa Santiago tells a very engaging story of twin sisters, Apple and Kola, who go at each other like complete strangers in the midst of all their struggles. you would think the sisters would come together and actually act like a family once tradgedy strikes, but they do the exact opposite and pledge all out war on each other.

The teenage girls experience a rollercoaster of love, hatred, betrayal, and revenge. They both seem street smat, but Kola definitely shines in that department while Apple s

Apple & Cola are twins that have absolutely nothing in common. One is quiet and more reserved while the other likes to wild out every chance she gets. When an unfortunate tragedy disrupts the girls lives, they become instant enemies.

This book confused me . It started out with great promise but somehow along the way it turned into a book that was just plain outright unbelievable. The relationship between Apple & Supreme was confusing at its best, especially when you add on the incident wi

Her Sister’s Keeper?


Twin sisters Apple and Kola may share the same DNA, but that is where all similarities end. Apple is meek while Kola is a wild child. When tragedy hits close to home, instead of the twins coming together, it pits them against each other.

Nisa Santiago’s “Bad Apple” started with great potential but somewhere along the pages that potential diminished. I found many things to be unbelievable, reaching and too far-fetched. Had the author maintained more of a balance with the belie

How do I read it on this app

Yes this is my kinda read excellent read. Apple and Kola, Kola and Apple. These twins are fighting for something that they shouldn't be. They should have love for each other and fight these bottles together. Things are spiraling out of hand fast and there's no turning back. Over a small unnecessary moment that could have been changed with just the truth then things could have gone better. Anyway what would the story be like "BORING" lo. Thanks for the good read author Santiago...:-)On to part 2.

All I can say is wow as I have never known twins who were so opposite and hated each other, especially for identical twins. Nichols, the younger sister, wanted to be like them and she kept the peace when she was around but then tragedy strikes and she is killed. All h*ll breaks out then and the twins, Apple and Kola, declare all out war on each other and struggle to see who comes out on top. Great read and looking forward to finishing this series but when two sisters are going at it no one reall ...more

I wanted to just stop reading this book at the middle point. The violence is graphic and it is not for the faint at heart. The only thing that kelp me reading is the fact that I had bought all four books in this series at the same time. I finished them all but be forewarned if graphic violence torture rape ain't for you just bypass this book set because in four books I think at least maybe 100 characters were killed. I skipped the sections of torture. I didn't want that in my mind.
Tamar Jones
It was the greatest book ever along with coca kola checkmate and face off it's needs a part 5 great books nisa santiiago

when i first read this book, i kept turning the page. i mean ive seening or heard aboutn family having disaggrement and all but this book took it to another level. two sisters apple and cola went at it in this book. pride, selfishness, competion. the drama is very good. but to see a family break apart was very hard to me. the death of their little sister made it wrost.
Nicole
Ahhh! I loved this. It was sad and f'd up what happened to Nichols. And its crazy how Kola and Apple were at each other like strangers. Supreme got what he deserved for doin them like that. But what happened to Apple at the end of this I feel bad for her but she shouldn't have been in Harlem trying to show off. But luke u said I loved this. Gotta get part two and so on ....
Rakia
Twins Apple and Kola were always at each others throats but the rape/murder of their youngest sister turns them into sworn enemies. Apples's greed and guilt leads in the arms of her sister's killer making Kola swear revenge on both Apple and their mother.

this book is a pager turner and really shows how $$$ money can change people and have family members going at eachother. i cant to read the next book and see what apples gonna do after her face got burned.
Tanesha Walker
This book was good, but kind of disappointing. I hate that Apple turned so dirty and cold. I thought she was going to be the good twin. Now i am currently reading part two, Coca Kola.
Krystall
I could not put this book down. there is so much stuff that happens in it at such a fast pace that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
Michelle
I thought this was a good book. However, I couldn't believe how dumb Apple seemed to be and how their mother treated them in the beginning. Would like to see what happens next.
Chantal
This is your typical book about a female in the hood who wants to make a come up. There was a very unexpected twist of fate and I can't wait to finish the sequel.
