I abandoned this story after 25 pages. Perhaps I will give it another chance at some point, but I couldn't get past the slangy tone of the writing. This surprised me because I am generally attracted to slang from all cultures. However, the black urban hipster tone of this book smacked me in the face from the first page. As a black girl, I hear plenty of this speech pattern in real life and it doesn't bother me. It can actually be quite funny when used properly. In writing, it comes off as stilted.
