Brooklyn Streets Meet Wall Street

Review: Brooklyn Street Meet Wall Street - James Jimmy Richardson - October 2016
Every now and again, a book will impress you, and for me, this was one. Brooklyn Street Meet Wall Street by James Richardson was terrific and quite powerful/inspirational. Without sounding racist, as some of my favorite authors are black like TD Jakes, ReShonda Tate Billingsley, and JJ McAvoy. I have often found black authors hard to read as they use a lot of foul languages and their slang.  However, this was a refreshing read and coming from an unknown author too. In this book we meet Josh Robinson who though he grew up in the ghetto life, he always wanted something better for himself and aimed to prove he was not just another black kid from the lower class. He didn't want to fall into the crowd of drug lords or gang life like his best friend. What I did like was that he still held respect with his friend despite the choices. Josh could still hold his own. This book is about an African American who proved to those around that as long as you try hard and put your mind to it, you can achieve wonders and create your path in life.  This is James's debut novel, and if he decides to write another just as good as this one, then I will be adding it to my TBR Pile as Brooklyn Street Meet Wall Street has made an impression on me. Add now to your piles as worth the read.
