I liked this book, but felt that the main character was lacking in personality. It would say how hard she was yet make her out to be naive all at the same time. I also felt that she was a little stupid at times. I just didn't feel very connected with her at all.
Although I didn't feel very connected with the main character I did enjoy the story. I wanted Shantell to get out of the struggle, and was happy everytime something good happened.
I would say this was a pretty good book as far as the stor...more

Well, if you can get past the mistakes this is a pretty good book. If you can't get past the won't be nearly as good as it could have been. I don't get the mistakes. I don't get how the authors allow these mistakes. These books have their names on them. If I were to produce something that was going to carry my name, pen or not, I would make damn sure there were no errors, as much as possible.

In The Eye of The Storm

Shantell Bryant used to be a happy child. She'd sing and play in her room and was content. Unfortunately, that happiness would be forever ruined. Victimized, deserted, and left for the vultures to feed off of, Shantell is alone fighting this cold, bitter world. Would she be able to trek such a grueling excursion?

I was vigilant in my search for Blake Karrington's debut novel, All Or Nothing What Wouldn't You Do To Get Ahead. When I couldn't immediately find it, that should...more
Pop, Lock and Drop It

The cards are stacked against Shantell Bryant. Living in the dangerous Piedmont Courts with a mother addicted to drugs, Shantell was forced to navigate herself from childhood to womanhood. Somewhere along the way, she became a single mother. Determined to make a better life for herself and her daughter and without an education, she relies on her most valuable asset...her body. Will it be enough?

"All or Nothing" is a mediocre read. There's nothing here that we haven't read b...more
I liked the story, however compared to the other three books I have read by the author I felt a little disappointed. I understand he was showing how life can be for girls growing up in the hood but Shantell just made me so mad it would have been nice to have some type encouragement for young girls instead of painting the picture they already see.
I really hate how it ended...ruined the whole book for me personally...

Blake Karrington is more than an author. He’s a storyteller who places his readers in action-filled moments. It’s in these creative spaces that readers are allowed to get to know his complex characters as if they’re really alive.

Most of Blake’s titles are in the South in urban settings that are often overlooked by the mainstream. But through Blake’s eyes, readers quickly learn that places like Cha...more
