What plays out on the pages of YOUNGIN is anyone s guess. At first, I thought it was somewhat of a typical read, but there are unexpected plot twists, which engages the reader. Written in the third person, author Arlene Brathwaite has penned a street novel that seems all too realistic. She incorporates a bevy of various characters to create subplots to roll along with the overall drama of the story. If you re a fan of street fiction, YOUNGIN is not to be overlooked.

It has been too long before I made it clear to the world that I'd finish reading. I did so within a few hours. The last that I laughed outloud & saw the vivid imagery was of The Coldest Winter Ever. I am deeply inspired in a spider web of ways. You don't even know. I want to thank you for being a women amongst those whom are competitive, classify my status, etc. -willing to allow me to breath a spec of the air you are beginning to breathe. That says so much of you. Am I worthy?...we'll see how proud you'll be, if you is what you see in me!!!! --Egypt Hill
I really loved the book and yes I read it in about 4 hours.. I cannot wait to read the sequel. --Linda Edwards
