    This story is very cinematic and full of action. It brilliantly weaves together the innocence of first love and the cold, harsh world of growing up in an inner-city neighborhood filled with drugs, violence and broken dreams. This urban Romeo & Juliet is a must-read for anyone who enjoys action and love stories - this book is a heavy dose of both.

    From: Ben Bell If Tomorrow Never Comes tells the true-life story of Adrienne “A.J.” Harding. It is written in an effortless style, with an authentic, flowing urban narrative. An understanding of A.J. and the ghetto culture she has grown up in is fully realized, rich with the colors, sounds and emotions of day-day life. A.J loves her mother, whose dabbling in and out of heroin and drink often causes the roles to be reversed: “My mom and I had a weird relationship. 50% of the time I took care of her and the rest of the time she took care of me. Other people thought it was crazy but it's just how we were.” Despite been sexually abused as a child, this intelligent, thoughtful and warm girl’s life is filled with joy, excitement and all the usual dramas and loves of growing up, as we follow her dance group Double Impact and their humour-filled exploits. Playing at malls and street corners, they raise funds and enter competitions in order to follow their band idols, 5IVE BROTHAZ, the lead... More > singer of whom A.J falls for and enters into a rocky but passionate relationship with. By the end of the novel it seems there is no justice as events take a turn for the worse for A.J. But If Tomorrow Never Comes is not about the happy ending; it is about the beauty, vulnerability and love of an individual life amidst tragic circumstances, told in the most honest, open and poignant way. It will cut you through to the heart.< Less
