This is quite possibly one of the worst books I've read recently. I enjoyed Black & Blue back when it was an Oprah book but this is just . . . ugh. It doesn't have characters, it has cliché after cliché. Hard career woman, perfect teen, sassy wise black women, bleeding heart social workers, crusty old cops . . . the list goes on and none of them are particularly likeable or interesting. And the "incident" that sets everything into motion was laughable.
By the end I didn't care what happened to anyone, I just wanted it to be over. I guess that's why it was on the BOGO rack at the bookstore.
