T belong in any fictional it s just plain weird the only I Ever Had ever had Coldest Winter Ever was when I ead about the author in the authors own book Straight weird if you ask me Anyway the comment between people at the meeting about how a black girl abduction goes unnoticed while a white girls would be all over the news how did that progress the story It didn t It takes away from it for any intelligent person eading it because they know this isn t true It s just not factual It smacks of acism actually Those are the only aspects of the book that bothered me The talented writing is there it always is with Hobbs books The moral to the story and the premise the characters everything is on point as always in my opinion Hobbs is by far the best female author in the genre The potential is there for genre crossing she could definitely appeal to a much larger audience with a few changes The conversations between the characters all felt eal Oh one other small thing I like when the covers match the character and have to assume the girl on the cover here is Gianna Yet she doesn t match the story She seems to be taking a casual stroll down an alleyway instead of fleeing a pimp I think the cover would have been better had she had a fearful look on her face maybe glancing behind her and wearing the clothes she was described as having on in the beginning of the book One good thing for Phillysurrounding area eaders there are tons of street names Fairmount Park etc so you can get that comfy feeling that comes from eading about areas you know and have been to.
