that can only lead to some hot ghetto mess However when I read this novel I enjoyed it It was at times funny suspense filled and at other times it just made me angry I like how Aliya developed the characters and was able to maintain my attention throughout the entire novel I would recommend this novel but I could only give it 35 out of 5 stars I wanted to give it 45 stars out of 5 but I’ll share with you why I couldn’t There were instances in this novel when I felt that Aliya was taking some low blows It’s one thing to create fictitious characters to imitate people which is fine but to purposefully insult people I’m not cool with that one I will list the two examples that really made me blink twice “Why not go out fighting” Jake asked“Like you and Puff and Jay Forty years old and still rappingPutting out a farewell album every other year like it makes sense”Kipenzi hesitated Her mother had been her only stylist—in the beginning because she couldn’t afford anyone else And now in the end because it has become her mother’s identity Kipenzi had grinned and borne it with several of her over the top seuin covered creations “These are just two examples that made me give this novel 35 stars out of 5 It is one thing to write about the lives of people but the insults for me is a real turn off even in fiction when it gets too close to people real lives When reading those comments as fans many of us already know who they are in reference to but it was just poor judgment in my opinion Others may not mind these references and may even find it funny but I couldn’t If this novel were without those insults I would easily rate it a 45 As I read this book I felt that this story had the ability to show that celebrities and their partners are people too I may be wrong but that was just my interpretation In spite of the aforementioned mishap I hope there is a seuel It should be awesome if written with the same style and tone as this novel of course without the sly insults
