I jumped this book to the top of my list after reading a very positive review of it in the New York Times "summer reading" review. Sadly, I found it was greatly overrated. The author is apparently trying to set up her protagonist, Lola, as a new tough gangsta leader with a conscience and core family values - sequels to come. If they do, the writing has to get much tighter. This one was way too long and just not worth the effort. I did not find Lola to be particularly interesting nor did I find the the story to be captivating. As a beach read, I would throw it in the ocean.
