Publisher's Summary

In this stirring prequel, New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe returns to the “cold-blooded yet fascinating” (Publishers Weekly) character from her acclaimed novel The Upper Room. Ruby is a wild youth, with a thirst for boys and booze by the age of 15. When she discovers she’s pregnant, the only person she can confide in is her best friend Othella. But Othella talks Ruby into giving up the child, leaving Ruby emotionally shattered and adamant that Othella is to blame for her loss.

I am disappointed!!

After reading the first book "The Upper Room" I was very excited when this book came out!!
I was even excited that the same reader Kevin Free was narrator.
While the Upper room was over the top with the story...it included humor and suspense. This book was to tell the story of Ruby from a child to young womanhood. It was way to much sex and violence. Yes, the first book had the same but, the story was better told. This one seemed thrown together and offered no sympathy for the characters.
The reader did the best he could with what he had...
