Book Review: This Game Has No Loyalty by June

    Junior had become the king of the Baptiste housing project in Brooklyn in a relatively short period of time, and the haters didn’t like him because of the fact that he was an outsider and was making money hand over fist selling crack cocaine. He was also dating one of the most coveted girls in Baptiste named Shondra, and life couldn’t be sweeter for the two of them.

    However, things began to unravel for Junior when he started being attacked from all angles―the neighborhood stickup kid Stump wanted him dead, and his right-hand man Kendu set him up to get robbed and murdered by Stump. He was also wanted for questioning by the police for a couple of murders in the area, and his girl Shondra was angry at him for two-timing her with the beautiful Muffin.

    The author June narrated the story with a methodical but steady cadence―paying close attention to detail and painting a picture that was virtually cinematic. It was as though I had a front row seat on a bench in Baptiste, and even if you’re not a fan of urban fiction, this novel is an accurate depiction of what life was like back then in the early 90s. I strongly suggest reading this book as it read like an episode of the hit series The Wire.

    My Rating: ★★★★★
