I agree and disagree with this read because even though I believe that love conquers on. I am questioning if young love is really that strong. I felt like I walked through the twilight zone and was reading about the problems that puppy love has, but I was clearly mistaken. It was more of a tale about going after your dreams and following your heart as best you can. It had tales of friendships that were gained and broken. And unique set a character who each in a way had to grow in order to not just get what they want but learn how to come to terms with who they are and how they love. Lankenua is a teenage girl who is uprooted from her home in Africa by her parents and is flown all the way to the US of A, where she goes to school at Gramby High and runs her parents store part time.

The story was really all over the place for me and was really one of those books that I would pick up for a few day and put it right back down for the same amount. It was story that intrigued me in the love factor, but was losing me at times when it came to the character development. The plot of the story had its moments where you are moving from one scene to the next very quickly. All in all, my nose was in this book when it had the chance. You meet Rico and Rockwell who live in the H in Illinois. These two are together and have their own hustles in away. Their relationship is really on and off and in secret due to Rockwell’s uncle Marcel. Rico works for Rockwell’s uncle and I got to say that is grimy. Rockwell well she is a different breed of hustle and is good at boosting stuff from stores. How they met was out of the ordinary because Rico thought she was fine as wine but never saw her approaching him.
The drama continues to unfold in Gangsta Divas by Denesha Diamond. I don't know how long we are going to keep this up, but I'm always hyped up when another Diva book comes out. Of course, all your favorite characters are back and are coming back more ruthless than ever when it comes to being on top of the street game. The one gang, the cripettes make an appearance in this book and you actually get a few questions answered. Willow is making a statement, Leshelle gets what she always wanted, and Tashara is letting her love for Profit rule all.
The book picks up right where the Street Divas left off and Lucifer's life is flipped upside down when one minute she is professing her love and the next she is losing her love and gaining some hope at the same time. With Fat Ace gone, there is a power struggle between Lucifer and her brother, but that doesn't last long because Lucifer is not having it. She knows she controls all the power of the Vice Lords and she is not about to fight for it. Her brother does take too long trying to realize that.
The girls are back, well almost all of them. We are more centered on Shayla and what her life has become since her split with Titus and Lissa who is her best friend, now. And I got to say, she really ended up on top and was really showing it in the beginning of this books. On this trail of finding herself, she went back to school and is a doctor. I know pretty cool right, but that wasn't even the best part. She got remarried to the wonderful Antonio Davis and if you don't know who that is then I suggest you go back to the first book and see what I am talking about. She has a son named Tyler and her life is really good and you would think nothing would go wrong, well it does.
It all starts with annual conference that she and her best friend Lissa have to go to. Meanwhile, you find out that Rhonda is back in town with disturbing new. Shayla ends up learning that Rhonda is one of her patients she tells her husband who is against it from the start. He slowly starts to open up about the whole thing later on. Lissa and Shayla end up going to the conference where Lissa meets a man named Seth and instant sparks flew and remained through most of the story. You also see this creepy dude named Tom stalking Shayla for some hidden reason of his own.
