Publisher's Summary

There's a saying in Brooklyn that if you come from my part of town, you're from around the way. Well Lyric, Juicy, and Precious are all from around the way. They all live in Crown Heights, one of the most notorious sections of Brooklyn, but to them it's just a place they call home. Around the Way Girls 2 is a fast-paced look at the life of some street-smart women who think they know it all but are about to get the lessons of their lives.

Lyric Crenshaw has been playing the game so long she's mastered it. Her motto has always been to use what you got to get what you want. With a face and a body like hers, the possibilities are endless. But when a love struck coworker teaches her otherwise and she meets a man that sees right through her, she may have to open her eyes and see that winning the game ain't everything.

If Juicy Brown were to die today, her obituary would read "another welfare recipient bites the dust". But things have to change. She agrees with some of the rumors around the neighborhood about her, but one is straight scandalous! And she's about to clear it up by any means necessary.

Precious Paine is a ghetto jewel haunted by memories of a troubled childhood. She and her crew have the game on smash, but trouble lurks around the corner. Can the love of a good man make Precious leave behind her hustles in the streets, or will she become another victim of the inner-city life that's marked for self-destruction?

Ummmmm......

That first story dragged on! I was waiting for the big bang in the first one but nothing happened. The second story had me in tears😢! It was a really good story but it was sad. I'm glad through the gloom she prevailed! And for that last one I'm just going to say "You see, you can't trust b@#$% or n@%#$"

Get rid of this narrator please! She isn’t a good narrator!!

I don’t even know how to rate this book because whoever is reading this book is horrible you can tell that she’s reading and not telling a story,a voice doesn’t fit the characters and she’s reading the whole book sensual one parts that shouldn’t be sensual. She’s only good when if she changes her voice to tell you what somebody else said Sidney or another character. So, it’s taking me longer to get into the book. I’m only trying to give it a chance because it’s 11 books. I’m almost ready to find another book so with that being said I’m not and can’t rate the book. FYI THE NARRATOR DOESNT HAVE A GOOD VOICE TO READ BOOKS MAYBE ONE CHARACTER BUT NOT ALL OF THEM ID RATHER LISTEN/RWAD A BOOK IVE ALREADY READ BEFORE.

Good read

I enjoyed all of the stories.. One story in particular was a bit crazy but I do believe that there are families out there like that.

Great story line. Loved all three books and I am looking forward to a sequel!!
