"Don't be the moth that flies into the flame" -Justine in Moth to a Flame.
If this book was written by Shakespere himself it would no doubt be a Tragedy. Oh yes this one is a tear jerker...

This book was about a 17yr old girl Raven who meets a street hustler named Mizan age 22. Mizan imo was the devil incarnate in fact he is the second character i have read this year that brought out deep hate i never knew i had. Good job Ms. Antoinette. Mizan is not aware of Raven's real age when they meet but when he finds out that her father is Benny Atkins(Drug Kingpin) it no longer matters he decides Raven is worth it and that she alone will be the come up he's been waiting for.

The day Raven decides to be with Mizan against her fathers will is the day her life starts a downward spiral. She has no clue that Mizan's intentions are no good. He becomes obsessive and a control freak with Raven he beats her and introduces her to coke/blow. He eventually makes her believe that he is all she's got and convinces her to turn against the one man that would actually die for her. Her Father. Everything that ensues after that is chaos and when Raven finally escapes an old habit inadvertently brings it back ten fold.

This tale was gritty and not exactly my cup of tea. Moth to a Flame was very well written and had some very good secondary characters as well. I really wish this book had a different ending. But life is not that way all the time.
