    One thought on “Ghetto”

    1. A big shout out to the author for sending me a review copy! Be prepared to be surprised because Ghetto was surprisingly great. Yes, it did have its cliches and in the beginning I was so annoyed by the information dumps but the characters really shine over all that. Let's start with the introduction which I didn't really like. I kept getting this vibe that I read the plot before mum dies of cancer because she doesn't want to give up the baby it's really familiar. Anyone know of the book? Anyways, [...]

    2. 5 StarsGhetto by M.L. Sparrow is quite a surprise package. It is a fantasy/science fiction, YA action/adventure with drama and romance.

    4. Ghetto by ML Sparrow is a great book!! I was hooked from the first chapters, all the way through the end. I kind of wish there was a seaquel to the book, so I could continue the story. This is the second book I have read by this author, and she did not disappoint. The book was a steady pace, and I fell in love with the characters right away. While the story is set in a futuristic time, I can still relate to the things they are going through, and their feelings. I highly recommend this book to an [...]

    5. Ghetto M L Sparrow 5 stars“If you are silent about your pain, they will kill you and say you enjoyed it” – Zora Neale HurstonThere is so much I want to write about this book but I don’t want to make this a socio-economic, political rant because this isn’t the forum. I will only say that if “we” don’t speak up and start being heard - this story could be (and may already be) so true.This is the story about a time (perhaps not so far in the future) where the classes of the world are [...]

    7. **I was provided with a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review!**When I first read the blurb for this book, I was instantly intrigued. I’ve read my fair share of YA Dystopians, but this one seemed to fit right in line with what I like. It sounded familiar in some ways and new in so many others – I was sure to give it a try. And my gut feeling didn’t betray me! Despite the quick rundown in the summary above, we get eased into the story very nicely. The world-building is well do [...]

    8. “Most people aren’t cruel, just blind. All we need to do is open their eyes.”Firstly, I must say I rarely read young adult and dystopian sci-fi books. However, the synopsis for this book had me dying to read it and I am so happy I stepped outside the box with this read and with how the story touched me. This book is a scary glimpse into a future that is not so far from what will eventually be a reality for our world if we don’t all step up and learn to love one another without prejudice. [...]

    19. Ghetto by M.L. SparrowFive StarsGhetto is the second book I have read by M.L. Sparrow. I have to say she is a true storyteller. M.L. makes this story come to life with detailed descriptions of how this dystopian world works and the emotions of Sunny and Sin made me angry, sad, anxious and happy.

    20. This is my first read by M.L Sparrow. When I first started this read I wasn’t really sure what to expect but then I was like whoa. A little slow to start but then it started picking up for me.The story starts with Sunny Beaumont, the Presidents daughter. Sunny is an only child whose mother passed right after her birth. As we can all assume being the Presidents daughter when you are a teenager is not all glitter and shine. With no real friends and little interaction with people Sunny is a self [...]

    21. Ghetto by M.L. Sparrow is a dystopian book. The summary really intrigued me so I was pretty excited to start this book. From the first page I found the book to be interesting. I also really liked the main character Sunny. She is the president's daughter and while in the start she is spoiled a bit I feel like her character grew leaps and bounds and she became a no nonsense lady. There was a lot of stuff going on in this book. And while I felt like most of it was important some parts were a little [...]

    22. Ghetto is completely out of the genre of books that I read. I came across it because it was different. I knew it was a bit young and based in the future, yet it peaked my interests. This book reminded me of going to a movie that my husband chose and I left thinking about it for days. The very first page had me instantly thinking that this is a movie that I would enjoy. Ghetto is based in the future but still had objects and references of the life we currently live in. Sunny is the daughter of th [...]

    27. 4 - GhettoImmediately this story is engaging because the lead character feels almost dippy in her outlook, you can almost smell her naivety. You can see it coming, you are screaming at her walking into the Ghetto, trusting the young kid that takes her to the camp, you want to shake her. However, as it leads to her finding out ‘how the other half live’ it is almost excusable. The depth of the writing is sincerely felt especially as the main character continues to attempt to escape, until s [...]

    29. Wow! What a great story. I'm a big fan of Dystopian reads, as well as YA, and and ML Sparrow's Ghetto nailed them both. I loved the interaction between Sunny and Sin, and their tumultuous journey towards what seems an impossible future together.
