It is on and poppin Sep 13, 2007
This book was wonderful but you have to get part II, then wait for Part 3 which I haven't heard anything about. This book isn't predictable at all.
Attention Getter Aug 23, 2007
It has been over six months since I have read anything. I saw this book at Wal-Mart and it got my attention. I love the way the author paid attention to details and how he took his time to make Dee Dee the Baddiest "Itch." I recommend to this book to anyone that is looking for a fast pace, straight out gansta type of reading, "This Is The One." I bought the book last night and I finished it today. I just couldn't put it down. This novel was what I needed. To each of you enjoy reading and take care.....Peace.

Alastair J. Hatter's It's On and Poppin' treats readers to a fresh scene of the grimy streets of Memphis. A story about twin brothers and a younger sister from a a good Christian home may not be what the streets is craving, but throw in the fact that this family is running the drug game in Memphis and you might have yourself a great page turner. Jay and Bee are making waves in the drug game when their younger sister Dee Dee decides to leave the stifling roof of her mother's home to live with her brothers. When things start to go wrong and her brothers end up locked down, Dee Dee is determined to keep the family enterprise afloat by showing her worth. Mr. Hatter can be commended for his great character development, but there are a few editorial issues that should be addressed. All in all It's On and Poppin' leaves readers craving a sequel with a final funeral scene that is anything but expected.
1. What did you like best about this book? I liked that Alastair gave readers a new setting of Memphis.
2. What did you dislike about this book? I didn't like the few typos that I found throughout the book.
3. How can the author improve this book? I think this book is good the way it is creatively. All that needs to be done technically, is maybe a final proofread to clear up any inconsistencies.
Together we stand, together we fall......The Three Musketeers... Jun 23, 2007
"It's On and Poppin" is definitely that and a realistic hood legend!!! Alastair penned this novel around siblings, Bee, Jay, and baby sis, Dee Dee. Bee and Jay are young guys in the game on the come up with alot of muscle, loyalty and street smarts. They're living comfortably but in search of their big break while standing watch over their sister trying to protect her from thugs in the street that live a life similar to theirs. Bee and Jay end up in jail leaving sheltered Dee Dee at the realm of their budding empire, and she's left to fend for all and has to discern who's truly gangsta and who's snake. Can Dee Dee stand for her family or will they all fall?
"It's On and Poppin" is full of gritty, enthralling drama that will have you turning pages and becoming more intrigued with the supporting characters as much as the central characters. Mr. Hatter captures your attention with love, murder, scheming, back-biting, drug game tales, cheating, grief, and heartbreak in the lives of true playas.
