My Life Is A Movie Reviews
Choices we make shape us!I was pleasantly surprised with this novel. I was thrust right into the story line and brought back to my youth remembering how hard peer-pressure was growing up. How it seemed double hard being a female trying to find my way in the world. I am sure all can relate to this coming of age novel and will be reminiscing about some of the situations they par took in as a youth. I think that author David L. had all the emotions of the female characters down to a tee. While I only have daughters, I imagine that what the males go though is precisely conveyed also. Kayla Brown is the main character and we follow her as she deals with day-to-day struggles with school, boyfriends, and family issues. Kayla believes the sun rises and sets on her. The decisions she makes affects not only her but also those around her.Tamika is Kayla’s best friend. She has her head on straight and a plan for her life. Tamika is the voice of reason for Kayla. These two are thick as thieves and different in every way imaginable but their bond is solid.Donavon is the star football player and boyfriend of Tamika. Donavon has a plan and the plan includes going pro after college and marrying Tamika. The females love that Donovan is a star football player. See how Donavon and Tamika deal with his rising stardom.As I read this, I was hoping that every teenager could get a hold of this book. I could not help thinking about the old saying my mother used to say to me “A hard a** make for a soft behind”. The lessons in this book are those we all learned growing up. The choices we make will affect us for the rest of lives. As teenagers, we all reached a point where we thought we were grown and that is the point that these kids are in this book. We follow along and see how their choices play out. I look forward to reading more from this talented author in the near future.SiStar TeaARC Book Club Inc5 star rating
I enjoyed reading this book. I'm promised that I will reading one of David L.'s books. I choose to read My Life is a Movie. The main character is Kayla Brown. My Life is a movie is dealing with emotion, youth, struggling, rape, self-esteem, and peer pressure. This is my first time to reading from David L. This book is hard for me to read because there is something wrong with Kayla. Likes:I like the concept and vibe in this book. David L did a good job. Tamika, Donovan and Arden are good friend to Kayla. Dislikes: Kayla Brown is a good young and intelligent woman but she decides to choose the opposite direction and choice the wrong men in her life. She is struggling in school and her family. Ellis is not good man to her because he is disrespected to Kayla Brown. Dickie is wrong for shooting at Donovan because over the dice game. Sorry:I'm sorry to hear about what's happen to Donovan and Kayla. So far, this book is really good to rear. David L. takes his to writing in this book. I choose 10.5 stars because this author and book deserve 10.5 starts. It's really sad and emotion because Donovon doesn't deserve to get shot over the dumb dice games. I'm looking forward to read another book from this author.Good Job: Sandra
OkThis was an OK read. It was predictable. I expected a but more though. It's as if the writer just got bored and dropped the open. And we never !earned who killed Marsha. The 80's..them were some times.
Enjoyed it. But ole girl was just as annoying as they came. Just dense and self centered.
