Authors Note: Please be advised that this book contains some explicit language. “Keep it in your pants,” Mrs. Holmes warns Xavier, her 17-year old son, who leaves his hometown of Glassboro, NJ to head to the City of Brotherly Love on a basketball scholarship to Temple University. The 6’7” prototype point guard, with a handle out of this world, quickly asserts his authority as the big man on campus when he laid eyes on Marisol Avelar, the Cuban cutie with the auburn coiled locks. Curious to acquaint herself with the all-star, Marisol gives herself to him every afternoon in the gymnasium stairwell after basketball practice. The rendezvous ends when the campus police catch them in the act. Xavier’s life changes forever when Marisol accuses him of rape. The prominent star is charged with rape and later expelled from the University.

    I can relate to the young brotha! His frustration and anger with the Marisol, his church, Temple University, and his family leaps off the pages! It held my attention which is why I was able to finish it so quickly. This book is on the mark! The book touches on risky behaviors which affects teenagers’ walk with the Lord - and forgiveness is one of them. Having to forgive those who trespass against us - even when the Christian folks treat you wrong –is hard for a 17-year old brotha to do! The author did a nice job in using the movie theatre to teach the lesson of forgiveness and other spiritual messages. Fantastic read for the summer. Any brotha (or sista for that matter) can relate to Xavier which makes this book so timely! By the way, the curse words were not overbearing and do not take away from story. They were in fact appropriate since they complemented his jacked-up behavior.
