    White Lines by Tracy Brown is the real reason I read urban fictionbecause it's about real life real situations and real people Jada Ford the main character in this novel did not have the best upbringingin fact knowing that a mother's love in one of the most cherished things of this world you could say she had one of the worst She lost her father at a young age and because of this her mother just gradually weakened and deteriorated As her daughers grew up Jada along with her younger sister Ava she didn't offer them any protection from her abusive boyfriend or from the streets because she couldn't even help herself As time went on Ava attempted suicide moved into a group home and Jada was forced to deal with her life as it was on her own Gradually she turned to things that would help her forget her very existence weed cocaine crack and sprinkle a little prostitution in the mix She was mixed up totallythen she met Born She thought they were a really good matchkindred spirits soulmatesshe didn't think they would ever fall apart but they did Because even though when they met Jada was clean but she still fell back into her old ways and needless did she know that Born was dealing with his own issueshis own past and he wasn't allowing any room to help Jada deal with hersWhite Lines was so explosive and so powerfulBorn and Jada taught readers the true meaning of friendship lasting the test of time because their's did Never has a book affected me so much since reading The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister SouljaI give it 5 stars

    This was the first book I have read by Tracy Brown and I was so impressed that as soon as I finished this one I was on the internet checking out everything she had written and have fallen in love with her This story truly pulled me in because it is so real it's not all about lovey dovey stuff that no one would believe It's real people real drama and it puts you right in the middle of each chapter as if you are standing in the middle of the characters' conversations for youself I truly felt apart of this story and I loved every character to the last page

    I love a good story I love good story telling I can read a 1000 pages without complaint stopping only to take care of life's other businesses if the story is great and captivating White Lines was okay I only really fell in love with the book at the end which is not really what I look for It's hood literature taking us to the NY projects again and making us live the life of the 'hustlers' as the story unfolds The book contains relevant messages on the numerous social vices the most prominent being drug addiction I saw the whole 'game' from a different perspective empathizing instead of sympathising with or looking down on usersabusers Within the many imperfections grew a love story that would eventually falter under mistrust deception disappointment and hurt Despite all these one can't help wishing the main characters Jada and Born would make up in the end burying all differences and starting a new chapter Dorian and Sunny personified love that stands the test of time works through the difficulties and thrives under the will to make things work I found it hard to like the writer's style I felt the story could have been told in less words The reader is taken through a series of repetitions that do not do well for one's attention Some of the diversions could easily have been done away with leaving a story with great relevance while keeping a simple style that wouldn't lose the reader among the many pages A few times I found myself mixing up the characters with those in Sister Souljah's 'The Coldest Winter Ever' due to the similarities in the main and sub plots Three stars

    This book was an extremely explosive read I found myself saying Wow Oh My Gosh I Can't Believe It Oh Know She Didn't and so many other phrases throughout this book while reading about Jada's life She was really one tough cookie who endured so much It was almost like watching a movie about this woman's life At times I was thinking WTH is she doing I literally said that to my self so many times because I just couldn't believe what I was reading Born was the epitome of a natural born hustler He is the kind of character woman love to read about He was about his business but about his woman also He was down for Jada even with her tawdry past and I couldn't help to have a lot of respect for his character This would have been a 5 star read for me but I felt the first 30% of this book just had way too much information I did want to put the book down uite a bit in the beginning because I just had enough of reading about Jada and Born's childhood Once the book started getting going when Jada and Born met it was a non stop page turner This book was extremely long I am a pretty fast reader and it took me about 8 or 9 hours to get through this one but it was truly worth it Looking forward to reading the seuel

    I was very hesitant in reading this book I'm not into a lot of urban drug related stories but this one is totally different It depicts an era where the drugs ran rampant throughout New York and focuses on the true side of drugs no Hollywood glamour and the affects it had in the lives of the characters in the story It was riveting sad gritty manipulative corrupt and jealousy rolled up into one outstanding storyline This book read like a real soap opera; never knowing what to expect from the characters but hoping they're not going to choose the wrong choice There's a real love story for two couples that goes awryJada Sonny Born and Dorian are the crem dela crem in the drug game and they're not people to mess with You'll either like or love these two couples or hate them This book could also get listed as urban romance

    So many people put the gold seal of urban fiction on The Coldest Winter which I would agree is a good read all the way around although I was disappointed with the 'seuel but not really a seuel' follow upTracy Brown is now a gold standard for me Whenever people find that I am a reader writer and lover of the spoken word they will suggest various books This one was suggested to me by someone that consumes urban fiction in the prison fiction sense of the word so I was concerned I have picked up those books but find that I have to be in a phase to read them One that reuires me to be mindless in my process and looking for an easy read which is a rare mood for me Tracy kicked it up many notches I find her books to be Jackie Collins with an urban flare There isn't meaningless cursing or sex the plot is well written and the salacious aspect is woven into a good story all the way around Additionally she has paired with Penuin for all of the books that I have read of hers which means that everything is edited to a t and I don't have to self edit as I readThis book follows a long the lines of the wayward woman and all of the encounters that she could possibly have The subplots are built for good follow up story lines and the characters are well developed One of the few fictional books that I read uickly but wished it didn't have to end
