"It was refreshing to read a story that delved deep into the hearts and minds of so many diverse characters. LaQueisha Malone pens a powerful story of faith, trust, and distrust, friendship, love, and—most importantly—life-changing secrets. This is one story that’ll have you thinking about your own innermost secrets, as well as the secrets of those around you."
~Jordan Belcher, author of Hush Love and Status
"I knew when I cracked this cover and read the first few paragraphs I was going to be treading a familiar ground or territory...This author delivery of the story was gripping and real, but I know she could have given us a lot more. I felt like I was cheated. I craved more! I gave this novel 4 stars."
~Reviewed by MizAuthorT (Bookworm Reviewer for The Urban Release Magazine)
"..a nice beautiful topic...people don't write like this anymore. I love it..."
~Reviewer Patrick Washington
"The book was really good, well-written, and something that's not usually talked about. It was an eye-opener on reality..."
~Reviewer T. Porter

~Reviewer Dimpra Kaleem, author of Yesterday's Dreams
