Although the name Ashley Antoinette may not ring a quick bell for some, if you throw JaQuavis in the mix, you will understand that the two have made up some of the best street lit fiction to hit the shelves. With The Prada Plan we welcome Ashley’s solo debut.

At the tender age of 6 Disaya, better known as Yaya handily learns the quality of couture and the importance of having a plan in life, a Prada Plan. Disaster strikes Yaya’s world when both parents are eliminated, and is suddenly forced to f
This book is VERY well written. I have to admit that I am a little shocked and pleasantly surprised that Ashley Antoinette did so well without JaQuavis Coleman. I am so proud of her. You go girl! Haha. This book is definitely FIVE STARS. The only complaints I have about this book is that there are a few inconsistencies that contradict each other in the first half of the book and also that the book is a little slow in some places. She was VERY detailed and really stretched this book out which I c ...more
Really good book, I listened on audio and it really pulled me in! I was rooting for YaYa the whole way through and praying for Leah's demise. Leah showed she was a cold hearted, unfeeling, deceitful person over an over again. I just can't imagine all that evilness stemmed from obsession and rejection. I definitely have to pick up part 2 and see what more havoc Leah can wreak and how things play out with YaYa and Indy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good urban lit book with st ...more
I could bash this, but it was actually really interesting reading something with a target audience so far outside my demographic.

Although YaYa parents lifestyle was not the best I'm sure it would've turned out better then not having them in her life. YaYa and Mona endured so much pain and abuse which caused a spiral of downfalls throughout their life. Everyone desires a chance to make their wrongs , right .
Yaya's moment came in Vegas when Indie gave her the courage to change for the better she should've left the game at that very moment. Leah is scorned and possessive , what happened in Leah's life to cause her to be so
The book The Prada plan is an urban fictional book written by Ashley Antoinette. It tells the story of a girl whose mother was a prostitute who was killed by the jealous lover of her father who was a pimp. Her father was sent to jail for life due to the charges of her mother’s death being put on him. She is placed in a foster home at the age of six and becomes close with another young lady at the same age because they were being raped by the foster mothers sixteen year old son every night until ...more

I loved loved loved this book ! I'm mad that I read it and didn't have the second part to fall back on ! what is life !
Despite the fact of me reading half of this book in girls from da hood 4, I loved it.
The love that yaya and indie shared was inseparable .. Multiple things managed to come between them and they always made it . The prostitution job went wrong and Leah ended up shooting Nanzi (indie's brother) and framing yaya for it . And that caused indie to completely be submissive of her ..

"Life can sure throw you some curves"

This is the story of Disaya Morgan. A little girl born into a life that most would not choose, one that was forever altered when a jealous lover murders her mother and sends the only father she's ever known to prison. Disaya ends up in the foster care system where she meets Mona another little girl who's life has been altered due to circumstances beyond her control and they form a bond. As the saying goes sometimes drastic times call for drastic measures. The

Wow...I'm glad iDidn't read this book when it first came out because iWoulda been too pissed if iHad to wait on the Part 2. The book was great! Filled with drama on pretty much every page. iHave a few suggestion for the actual medical things that goes on in the book, but that could be because iWork in that field. Overall, great book!

I just finished this book and I was like damn! This book kept me entertained and I couldn't stop turning the pages. Disaya had her priorities out of walk as a child because her mother was a prostitute her daddy was a pimp, she met Mona at a foster home and they were sexy ally abused by the foster mothers son. They finally ran away and became prostitutes for elite, Mona contracted aids, Disaya met Indie and fell in love. She wanted to turn her life around but Leah was a crazy bitch. She framed Di ...more
I read this book from start to finish in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. If you aren't hop to Ashley & Jaquavis, what are you waiting for? Ashley did her thing with her first solo novel. I can't wait for The Prada Plan 2
This book was amazing. Not one boring part in the book. An absolute page-turner. Not that realistic, but still an amazing book!

WOW is all I can say Leah that bitch is crazy I can 't wait to read part two.... The prada plan is a must read
Louise Payne
I LOVED this book, page after page of greatness.
YaYa and Indie, the definition of ride or die! Bonnie and Clyde but they have a problem named Leah. That's all I'll say without giving away too many details. This book has so many ups and downs. You'll ride the roller coaster of emotion and you'll want YaYa to win so bad! At the same time you'll appreciate Indie for his patience, understanding and unconditional love for YaYa. I could go on and on but honestly it'll be easier for me to encourage you to pick up a copy of this drama filled and perf ...more

Okay- here goes. I'm extremely dissappointed in this book, Ashley's writing, the plot, the characters, pretty much everything included in this debut. Of course this is the first book in a series- that was a must given the ser
This is kind of a complicated book to review. There's some history here. 'The Prada Plan' was a short story by Ashley and JaQuavis which was featured in the compilation 'Girls From Da Hood 4'. It ended on a cliffhanger, so this novel is the rest of the story, written entirely by Ashley Antoinette.

HOWEVER, the entire middle section of the book is a copy-paste of the short story from Girls From Da Hood 4. So there's 50 pages about Disaya's upbringing, then the copy-pasted chunk, then 100 pages of

This book was off the chain. It was a definitely a page turner I read this book in one night. I didn't put it down until I finished it. I kick myself for waiting so long to read it. I see what all the hype is about. Ashley did her thang on this book. I'm so thirsty to see what happens I about to start part.2. Great job Ashley 5 star read.......

This book is everything everyone says it is. I listened to the audiobook and it kept me in my car to finish chapters on more than one occasion. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the amount of drama in the book got a little over the top and predictable toward the end, but it was still VERY entertaining!

Disaya Morgan was a pretty green eye girl that alot of people love and have. Dynasty was her mother and known prostuite her pimp was Slim that all the hoes loved. But only this is that his heart only belone to one hoe and that was Dynasty and he also claim Disaya even though he knew she wasn't his. After days later Yaya waited on her mother and dad to come back, but they never did so, a social worker came to get her and place her in a home.

I just finished reading The Prada Plan by Ashley Antoinette. The Prada Plan is a good book to read. This book is about Disaya's story. I like the concept and vibe for this book.

Leah is a something else. She is crazy and jealousy. She needs to go to rehab or something. Disaya needs to be careful who she is dealing with. I felt bad what's happening to Mona. Disaya has been through in her life.

Ashley Antoinette did a good job for this book. She is a good writers and author. She is never disappoint

DNF. Couldn't relate to subject matter. No judgments --just not interested in pimps and hos. Foolishly thought the story arc was more about rags to riches, revenge and redemption, especially after such a stark beginning with foster care and sexual abuse.

Listening to this book was drudgery for me. I completed it only to learn that it ends in the midst of high drama. The problem I have with this book is the writing style. The author tells rather than shows. Not good for me. I prefer more craftiness when I'm reading but that's just me.

This book was great... I learned about high class prostitution, how to start a drug empire, anal... you know all the stuff I"ll never want to experience in real life. It was exciting and I can't wait to read the second book. I have to know what happens to Indie and Yaya's baby. Be forewarned though it starts out absolutely disgusting I was ready to put it down but thankfully I kept reading because it got better.
