    1. This was very disappointing and definitely did not compare to its predecessor :( When I finished the companion of this book, Sweet Thang, I realized that there was a sequel. Do you know how long it took me to get a hold of this thing?Yeahabout two years. And I was all excited about reading this. I mean, seriously. I loved Whittenberg's writing in Sweet Thang and I had high expectations for its companion.UmTo me, Charmaine just didn't seem the same. I can barely remember what she was like in the [...]


    2. I'm not sure what the cover designer was thinking, but for me, the cover depicted a whole different book than what lay inside. I was thinking: young black couple in the '70s moves from Hollywood to Maine, little boy in tow. Cultures clash! It was actually a sort of family portrait of a black family in the Philadelphia '70s, told through their 15 year old daughter Charmaine (Maine), who isn't sure if she wants to model. A lot of the tension in the plot felt forced, but that could just be me expec [...]


    3. thiss book is qettinq soo qud likee im at thee part where tracy john was at hiss baseeball qame.but beforee that i likeed thee part where charmaine was at thee modelinq thinq nd thee other ppl that wass there ,,thier parents were curiouss so theyy was askinq thee model aqencyy questins about thee cost of thinqs and everythinqq u hadd tew payy for likee the porfolio,,covers and thinqqs likee dat.! but itss qettinq qudd so far.


    4. im not done with this book just yet im about 30 pages away from being done so far its not so exciting and wild like the books i read before but its not to bad and its doesnt bored you to sleep. its mainly about her life the most intresting is thatt she's a young black girl thats going to become a model not a model but take pictures like a model and she's a really well put together character.


    5. Well let me just start off by saying that i am really greatful to meet another author, allison whittenburg. What I learned from the book so far is that charmaine has alot of dreams but theres so many distraction coming to her like her uncle coming to her house.But anyways i'm likeing the book so far, and im gonna keep going into it


    6. The book is not what i thought this would be. Like in the book Charimanine she was having a good life she had her own room and her own stereo but when her uncle E came to visit her then it turn out he was going live with so now she mad because her is a jailbird and she dont trust him. then she st




    7. Though it takes on a few weighty issues (war, socialism, crime), Hollywood and Maine is a lighthearted novel with vivid personalities and a charming romance plot. An easy rec.
