Publisher's Summary

Baby Girl McCoy was given her name when her mother couldn't even be bothered to give her another one in the hospital after she gave birth. Baby Girl was the product of rape, and she spends her life in a quest for a father figure. Never in a million years did she imagine that she'd find it in the man that she does.

With a good head on her shoulders and a forgiving heart, Harlem Lee Jones discovers that some things in life must still be accounted for. She may have allowed her heart to find its way to God, but the devil is surely lurking close behind. Has she really left her mean-street ways behind her?These two dramatic stories filled with pain, heartache, and ghetto love, remind listeners that you can take the girl away from the ghetto, but she'll always manage to find her way back.

The narrator and those long pauses!

The performance is horriblllleeee. Those long ass pauses! Lawd this probably isn’t something you shouldn’t do full time. This what made the story boring at some point. I found myself saying damn girl hurry up!

Narrator was terrible

She paused way to much through out the story I almost stopped listening. It was frustrating and annoying. The story was good so I finished it but it was hard

Narrator Tanked It!

This story was not bad but it was hard to get thru it with the narrator. The pauses were too long, her punctuation was off at times and what irritated my entire soul was when the last character was introduced and I'm guessing the name was CoCo but maybe spelled CoaCoa and she kept pronouncing it Coewuh Coewuh..... At any rate, that was beyond annoying!

This book was all over the place

The first one was rushed. The second started out well and went downhill really fast.

Worst Performance Ever

I decided to give the narrator another chance as Audible recommended this book and just like the last one, worst narration ever. Made listening very difficult.

Enjoyable

Love the book. Not many books I've read deserved a sequel but this does. My teenage song even enjoyed this book on our long drives.
