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.
