In the first installment of It Was All A Dream, Kelvin F. Jackson, introduces us to Kevin Johnson, a street hustler from Wyandanch, NY, and his ride or die chick, Mattie. Kevin and Mattie decide to leave the fast life of New York and move to a small, country town in Martinsville, VA, until a run-in with the law changes the course of their lives forever.

Excellent... this book as did the parts 2 & 3 had my mouth hung open many times, yelling at the book. He is a excellent writer and will read more of his books.

The book reels you in from the first page and keeps you yearning for what happens next. Kevin,the main character shows how to turn big dreams into reality.

There were some grammar issues but all in all the story line was very interesting. Looking forward to part 2. Thanks Kelvin for the chance to read this interesting story
An excellent read!
