Picture
I wasn't very impressed when I started this book but when I got to about 10 letter exchanges, I could identify with the very real and raw emotions of these 20 somethings who have had to grow up in a short time. This book is an exchange of letters by a young convicted Tony and his first love Natasha. Poor, black and struggling Harlem residents go through the cards that has been dealt them with courage, open mindedness and emotional struggles. It was inspirational how each of them handled things and how they aspired to stop being poor & struggling forever. 

I really liked the way Buchhanon put this together and kept it real.

    I get lost in books and live their lives until I turn the last page. I ponder a while, carry the laughter, shed a few tears and sigh. Then the thirst for more arises.
