Epiphany, Keisha and Shana are best friends that chose different paths as they got older. Epiphany basically believed you had to pay to play. With Shana you couldn't really knock her hustle but the way she handled certain situations were uncalled for. Keisha was the most level headed of the three but along the way caught herself in some mess. Smitty did Epiphany wrong but she set herself up in that situation. Just when it seemed Epiphany thought she would be settling down she found out what C-Go ...more
The book I read is called Sheisty by T.N Baker. This fiction book takes you on a bumpy ride! Three bestfriends are tearing apart because of men and money, that's all it takes. Trust is taken away and tension grows!

I will give any genre a shot and this was recommended to me as a classic of urban fiction. Let's just say that I am obviously not the intended audience and I found no redeeming value or literary quality to the story, characters, style or tone. At least I can say I tried.

This was the first book that I have read by this author and when I started reading it I wasn't sure that this was the book for me but as I got into it this book was great and I must say I can't wait to read the second book.

Some of the things could have been avoided if the girls would have stuck together .. Ephihany annoyed me she was all about self and didn't value her friendships. She thought she was better then everyone else .. Keisha is the only one who seems like she having a good relationship going on but somehow she manages to screw it up .. Shana girl is letting a man from jail rule her selling her hopes and dreams and using her to get back on . Tanya just wants to be loved ..

sheisty was a over all a pretty good book, it told the story of what happens to some women that grow up in the project. the mane characters were three women named Epiphany wright, Keisha Moore, and Shana Scott that as kids were best friend but as adults the still remain friend but they want the same bound.
epiphany wright is what most people would call a free spirit, she does and says most thing without thinking about it. she tell people how she really feels no matter who they are except the man

Can a teenage friendship survive adulthood. In my opinion, T.N. Baker has written a very realistic coming of age tale that happens to take place in the hood. Close friends since their teens, Epiphany, Keisha, and Shana are now grown up, but with their hood mentality accompanying the young women into adulthood, their morals and values are rather skewed.

The love of material possession, men of dubious character, and plain greed test the friendship.

There is a cliffhanger ending with a preview of boo

It was hard to tell if this book was good, bad, or in between. The lack of basic editing was so distracting I couldn't focus on the plot.

These 3....This book had the perfect title to describe Epiphany, Keisha & Shauna. I must say these females have a lot going on in their lives. T.N. Baker provided a good storyline & short descriptive chapters that made for a good read. Looking forward to reading Still Sheisty to see what additional drama these 3 provoke in others lives.
