I received a copy of this book from the author himself, in exchange for a review, and although I wouldn t normally read a book like this, I thoroughly enjoyed it The story is a collection of short stories that is based on the Oakland sex trade The characters that novella focuses on are Cherise, Shanice, Ed, Doris, and Diamond each character is facing hard times, and you truly feel bad for them This novella was very depressing, but somehow at the end of each story each character found the light a [...]

Little Girls is a compilation of short stories that all share a common denominator the sex trade The characters in the storys connect in some fashion with another story, which really brings everything full circle.From the ravaged grieving prostitutue turned lawyer Cherise to the young Shanise, a victim of the sex trade and an evil pimp called KT, the gritty and raw writing will hold you in it s grip From the elderly man who uses his Bible as his crutch while surfing for porn and meeting the girl [...]

California Dreaming Heart breaking and thought provoking, with a backdrop of sunny California against the sometimes gloomy stories we re presented These stories deal with a love that has no name, child sexual trafficking, and memories of abuse that fester and grow into the adults we become There are tales that reveals the darker side of humanity, and the self we try to deal with at times in our life, but healing only comes when we re able to move forward, not forgetting but always carrying a pie [...]

I wish this book had been longer, because when I got to the end of it I was thinking, oh no, it can t be over that fast It s a collection of short stories, some of them are connected because you will see one character in another story, and there are two different stories which share one scene told from two different POV s Overall it s a good collection of short stories, though I did notice a few typos here and there only a few, the kind that spellcheck doesn t catch and it did not really interfe [...]

I won this book from It was easy to read I sat down and read it in about an hour and a half the stories flowed well The chapter 11 500 did have a little bit of a confusing aspect, the flow from present to past back to present was a little confusing until I figured out what was going on I like how the stories all connected in some way I don t know yet if I want to read the entire novel, but I think this was good and would not discourage anyone from reading it It is not a happy go lucky book thoug [...]

2012 04 12 My has arrived o 2012 05 29 Finished this book after cutting the grass, sitting in the sun A review will follow I think I m going to need to cogitate on this one before I write the review It leaves one with lots about which to think There is a longer version of this book I m tempted to look for it the book is not uplifting, but contains many important truths.Thank you to Elton for providing this book hrough First Reads competition.
