NEW REVIEW: Sister Souljah - A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story

Sister Souljah
A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story
Available Now!
5 out of 5 books

Porsche Santiaga had spent the first eight years of her life looking up to her older sister Winter. But when her dad is sent to prison, Porsche is forced to grow up in the harsh juvenile justice system that Winter knew nothing about. Through this growing process, Porsche is determined to become a strong woman. Will Porsche be the queen that she is destined to be, or will she be just another statistic?

Sister Souljah finally gives us a true sequel to The Coldest Winter Ever with A Deeper Love Inside. In the prior book, Porsche blended into the background and you didn’t get her whole story. With this novel, Porsche is telling you everything in her own voice so that you see everything through her eyes. Sister Souljah does an excellent job of showing the harsh realities of Porsche growing up in the juvenile justice system. Readers will find that Porsche has a totally different mindset than her older sister at an early age. She was not only concerned about surviving but also to become a better and stronger person. It was refreshing to see the growth in Porsche from the beginning to the end of the book. This story also has some great secondary characters that help Porsche along her journey including a young man named Elisha. Midnight and Winter do make appearances in this novel but this story is not about them. Sister Souljah also connects this story with the end of The Coldest Winter Ever so readers will not feel cheated. By the end of the book, you get a sound and satisfying conclusion with all of your questions answered about Porsche. You actually see the mature young woman that she becomes. A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story is a thought provoking coming-of-age story that was definitely worth the wait.
