Ashley Antionette is the most successful female writer of her time. The feminine half of the popular married duo, Ashley and JaQuavis, she has co-written over 40 novels. Several of her titles have hit the New York Times best-sellers list, she is most widely regarded for her racy four-book saga, The Prada Plan… Which is by far one of my favorites! Ashley and her husband are extremely talented, and I definitely recommend checking out their work.
Bleu, who is the product of two crackhead parents experienced more at a young age, than most in a lifetime. Her parents used to have a great reputation in Flint, Michigan but turned to become dependent of the street pharmacetuicals sold. They lost everything, and argued constantly about getting high. Bleu hated her life, many days she went nights without eating, and everything she had was used, old, and worn.
Bleu witnessed her father being murdered, and it scared her for life. Bleu’s mother resented her and the abuse became worse, because she reminded her of her father. Seventeen years of this treatment, but Bleu stayed dedicated to school, and working to make something of herself. Senior year she gets a partial scholarship to UCLA. Bleu takes it, and decides to work and attend classes.. anything to remove her from her current situation. Bleu vowed to never make the same mistakes as her parents….
Bleu attends UCLA and encounters so many situations that we all do, as college students. It is very interesting to read the turn of events, and how she handles certain situations. One of the reasons I am a fan of this book, is the same reason as others. Ashley makes her characters the envy of everyone. These young ladies may be committing high prices crimes, or battling with major psychological issues. However, they are not your typical “thugs,” the ladies role with class. People aspire to be these types, and it shows you the grass is not always greener on the other side.
This was definitely a great read, and I am anxious to read part 2.
