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.

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.

You meet Rico and Rockwell who live in the H in Illinois. These two are together and have their own hustles in away.

How they met was out of the ordinary because Rico thought she was fine as wine but never saw her approaching him.
What’s Your Totem?by Melissa PriceHave you ever had the occasion to keep noticing something? Perhaps it’s an item or an animal that appears wherever you travel or whenever you visit a particular place.This phenomenon surged into my life last week at the Southern California coast. While it wouldn’t be entirely unusual to view a dolphin, a seal, a sea lion, or even a shark in those waters, would it make you think if you saw only one of those species – repeatedly? How about continually?Whether I was walking, standing on the beach, or looking out from the pier, a seal came to greet me. Daytime or night, regardless of the spot where I found myself, seals appeared. Aptly named, Seal Beach was where I had my sendoff encounter with the largest of any I had seen.Strolling along the pier on a clear cool evening, I leaned on the railing to look...
So this book automatically introduces you to all the characters. Well, at least the main characters. Princess and Kia are at a club living it up for the last time and are being eyed by this cat named Mace. He automatically has a thing for Princess and you can just see it or read it. On the outside, Mace is the perfect gentleman. Princess, in turn feels it too and what started in the club seems like its going to be a long term thing. I read this and thought it was going to be your typical love story because these two characters moved really fast as far as the progression of a relationship. You get to see how strong the bond between the two cousins are when you see Kia leaving for college and leaving Princess there for the first time in years. When Mace and Kia have left, she ends up turning to her ex for attention. She does feel guilty, but that moment quickly passes in her mind. Princess finally get the phone she has been waiting for and goes to see Mace where he dumps a trip
to Las Vegas in her lap.
