To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really dont like this book . I have read three " Blocks ( chapters ) " . The characters are violent/victims of violence , traumatised, messed up , hustlers etc..... Cant children be children at least for a while . Do I want my 9 yo reading "snitches get stitches or sometimes ditches" . No. I do not. I appreciate authors make up worlds and maybe this world has some basis in reality for some but it is not a nice world to visit. Lastly, language. Stream of consiousness/jive was great when I was a teenager reading On the Road . A bit tricky when as a white middle class parent I am reading to my kids and keep "auto correcting" the protaganists grammar. Donny Hathaway . Legend. This book not so much .
