This is a coming of age story about a young man named Innoxent. The readers were given a front row seat to family life, friendship and the impact that each one has on his life. His cultural experiences, introduced by his mom, inspired poetry. His relationship with uncle Mello taught him how to maneuver thru the streets of Dallas. Growing up with cousin Smurf and Aunt Sharnessa showed the importance of family structure. His best friend Problem taught him humility and brotherhood.
As we know, with the good comes the bad. Penny chooses a man over her son, which leads to the ultimate betrayal…in more ways than one. Mello finds himself in a situation that affects the entire family, and poor Problem is left abandoned and betrayed.
Now, the budding relationship between Innoxent and Halo is beautiful to witness, because her gentleness inspired him to be a better person. I can’t wait to see how this plays out.
This is my second time reading this book by @novelistblacctopp and I fall more in love with it each time. My favorite character is a toss up between Innoxent and Problem. My heart bled that young man. My least favorite character, hands down, is Bean. Rotten to the cute and didn’t care who he destroyed, because of jealousy. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good read.
