This quick read started off my summer beach reading. This book is about two girls (the narrator and her best friend Neeka) who live in Queens. They've been friends forever and have their routine in their neighborhood. Then one day a girl shows up and starts talking to them. She's beautiful and cool. She's different...almost like she's from another planet. The girls get to know each other and it's like they've always been just them three. This is a story about their friendship.
In the background of all this, too, is family drama - good and bad and of course, Tupac. I liked the storyline involving Neeka's brother (who is really a sista). He's in jail and dealing with that. It was powerful to see the love of the family. They were always there for him.
This book was pretty good. It was a great story about friendship and family. I liked it.
