I would like to thank you for sharing Crystal's story with us. I am so very proud of her and the things she has overcome. I cried until I couldn't cry anymore. And I'm still crying right now as I am writing this review. I would recommend every young lady to read this book. It shows that you can beat any situation. I don't know if it could've been any worst, but Crystal's determination didn't allow her to become stagnant. Knowing the conditions and how people are in that region she grew up in, it makes me so proud that she didn't rely on temporary outlets to take away the pain. The hand that she was dealt made it seem that all odds were against her but she still came out a shining star! The descriptiveness and how in depth this story was wrote put me right there in Crystals character and the author did such a great job at painting that picture for us. And I am so happy that she met "Zo" ;-)
Keep writing...you had me laughing, and crying. I enjoyed it very much .lol Glenda ....when does the next one come out?
I could not put the book down this well written book mirrored and touched on a lot of my past. Crystal saw her own way through a lot of cloudy moments and some DIFFICULT situations I've been needing a good book and this one was definitely a very good selection ! Now I am waiting for the next! 👏🏾👏🏾 ❤️
I really enjoyed reading this book. It made me laugh, cry, and happy at times. "Crystal" went through a lot in her lifetime, yet she came out fighting Strong. The story was delivered in a way that it held my attention throughout the entire book. I am an avid reader and I must say, this book is very engaging. I felt as if I was reading about a true person, about things I could empathize with. I am looking forward to the upcoming continuance of this story. Congratulations Ms. Talva on doing a great job.
This book was a great read, however its not until the last chapter that the lessons comes full circle. Crystal is a strong and brave young lady that did not allow her circumstance define who she is or who she would be. She kept on keeping on. If you have ever been through anything in your life and allowed it to define your present and future this is the book that may help you to reprogram your thinking and move towards healing. BRAVO!
AWESOME AWESOME BOOK!
Talva touches on a very deep subject that is more common in today's society. She did an awesome job connecting her reads to this story. I can't wait for the sequel of this book and look forward to reading more of Talva's work!
I met you at your seminar the Sacramento Black Book Fair. I finally read and finished your book recently. Outstanding! I thoroughly enjoyed your book. One of the best I've ever read. What other books do you have published?. You have a fan in me.
Talva was able to pull you into the story and keep you there wanting to know what happens next. A must read!
The author, Talva, really captures your curiosity to delve further into the Enigma (Puzzle, Mystery) of life. Through the life of the character Crystal; you get to witness how a childs life can go from sunshine to cloudy grey skies. This is a interesting, compeling, and at times really humorous book. The story will leave you questioning your own thought process about how you view and judge people. Great read!
