This book was terrible. It was very corny & not realistic. It was like a story that my 13 yr old daughter would tell. too fairytalish. I mean who really writes a book where ppl sell drugs and kill ppl with no consequences and a 17 yr old girl and her best friend have matching everything. Men are just giving them everything they want with nothng in return and no consequences. Glad i didnt grow up thinkin like that. Aint nobody game that tight unless they dealin wit dummies.
I had to force myself to finish because that's just the type of reader I am - once I start a book, I'm damn well gonna finish it regardless of how much it kills me to do so. HOOD RICHEST was your basic urban fiction book about a chick that wanted to live the 'hood life' because for some reason she felt it was better! I was really hoping this book was going to be a better read - but it let me down substantially. Hopefully Miss Monay's next novel, will be of a better quality.
This book is HORRIBLE. I like to give every book a chance even though there are mixed reviews, because i want to go off based on my opinion, but i couldn't do it. I tried!! I'm the type of person to stick it to the end no matter how bad a book is but this was extreme. This book is unrealistic, i couldnt conect to the characters, and i just thoght it was too much. I wasted my money but it a lesson learned.
