Recommends it for: younger urban fiction readers
Recommended to Eva by: bookmooch
Shelves: b-urban-fiction
This was an okay book- obviously written for the younger crowd as it was missing some of the average violence, language and sexual content of other urban fiction books. It's basically a cutsy fairytale type story about a young woman who is in the dark that her father is (half) king of the streets in her city. Despite the fact that she lives more lavishly than most famous athletes and rap stars, this hasn't come to her yet. Okay. She meets a young man who is (guess who!) the son of the other ...more
Completely unrealistic on every level to me, but then again what do I know about the extravagant lifestyles of underworld rulers of the ghetto?
I think they're trying to be like a Romeo/Juliet setup here with the star-crossed teen couple. I also found parts of the book to be racist towards whites, but then again, I don't think I got any more offended by this story than a black person would be by racist literature directed at blacks.

I was extremely surprised by this book. I'd actually give it 3 1/2 stars if I could, as I think it does an excellent job of doing what it set out to do ("clean" urban fiction for teens). In an attempt to further put off starting the 2nd Octavian Nothing book (I did read its summary of the first book...), I picked this up last night, and was shocked when I couldn't put it down again until I finished it at 2am! The plot is actually very well done and compelling. The main character is fairly well ...more

Mercedes Clinton is sweet sixteen and boy is she ready to let her hair down and explore the wilder side of life. Privileged, living in an upscale community, attending a boarding school and laced with all of the hottest gear, Mercedes is still in search of her own identity. Preparing to tear the mall up with her favorite cuzo, Keisha, visiting for the summer from New York, Mercedes is thrown for a couple of loops. How will Mercedes endure her summer vacation with Daddy and Mommy keeping a
This ghetto fairy tale would be great teenage fiction if it weren't for the sex and the bad portrayal of young love. I would hate for a young person, more specifically a young lady to read this and believe this is what true love should be. Three out of the four main men in this book are controlling, demeaning, and very jealous. Briefly and in very few instances did this novel even shed light on what a true loving relationship should be. With that said, it is definitely love at first sight for ...more

I don't remember enough about this to really say anything but I remember liking it. It's more along the lines of YA than adult but it'd be hard to get a book that isn't good if it's from King.
I just happened to see the part in the description mentioning Biggie and am laughing my ass off. Thanks for that tip guys! Most of the people reading King's books probably wouldn't have picked that up without that tip. (Um, can anyone pick up on my sarcasticness?)

This was a watered down version of Romeo and Juliet. No, there wasn't any cursing in this book. However, there was sex. I still wouldn't give this book to someone under 18. I was annoyed by this whiny little girl. Going on and on about how much she loves this guy that her father forbids her to see because he's the son of his enemy..WHO CARES??? Glad I got this one for free lol.

What I learned from this book is this book is another version of romeo and juliet.Its about a boy and a girl want to be together but cant because they come from two different familie.Will they make it in the end because romeo and juliet never did.
