Don't be fooled by the title or cover. This is far from your average story about a young woman lost on the wrong path. Stripped is your gateway into the life of Ciaza, a young woman who had it all and lost it all and is determined to do whatever it takes to keep it all. Overall this book is a pretty fast read with enough of a hook to keep you reading until the end. Although the ending seemed a bit rushed and some of the suspense wasn't fully explored, Jacki Simmons has indeed lived up to all the hype surrounding her freshman effort.
1. What did you like best about this book? I loved that Jacki was able to turn a tired, over used scenario into her own.
2. What did you dislike about this book? I liked the book overall, and although the author took a very common plot and added her own story to it, it does boil down to another book about a young girl lost trying to make her way.
3. How can the author improve this book? Stripped would be better if the book didn't end so quickly.

DID NOT LIKE IT AT ALL!!! Feb 25, 2007
I REALLY WASTED GAS AND TIME SEARCHING FOR THIS BOOK. IT WAS NOT GOOD AT ALL. WITH ALL THE HYPE AROUND MS.SIMMONS, I WAS SURE THT THIS BOOK WOULD BE A PAGE TURNER BUT FOR ME IT WAS NOT. I FELT THT THIS WAS REALLY HAD TO FOLLOW AND I FELT IT WAS A WASTE OF MONEY. I STILL AM AWAITING THE NEXT BOOM FROM THE AUTHOR AND MAYBE IT WILL BE A BETTER READ.
What's a young woman to do? Feb 21, 2007
Caiza Bell thought she was sitting on top of the world, until things made a turn for the worst and all she could think is how I will survive.
Trying to get thru school, pay bills which she is not used to doing and keep food in her and Sparkles mouth; she does the one thing that is a sure way to solve her problems. That's to Use what you got to get what you want, and that she does. She is the baddest b*tch Trina aint got nothing on me is what she tells herself, and she does the one thing she never thought she would do; strip.
This was an enjoyable first read by Ms. Simmons; I look forward to what's to come from Ms. Simmons.
