Hello, hello, hello everybody! (All of my associated content readers and viewers.) Now as you may know (my regular readers) I have been giving reviews as well as African American reading group reading groups book suggestions, that are not only subjected to reading groups nor are they only subjected to a particular racial group or background (African Americans.) I loved reading ever since I was a young girl. The first book that I read that marked my transition from children’s books was The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah (which I will suggest and write about next time.) But the book that kept me going non stop and kept me from ever looking back was the book Flyy Girl by Omar Tyree. I truly fell in love with that book. I guess it was because I knew many girls who were similar to the book’s main character Tracy Ellison (and when I read it I was about her age.) One of the things that I loved about Flyy Girl was that all of the things she had done and had been through had not been or done completely or solely in vain. She truly learned from all of the events in her young life. So in other words it had what I would like to think of as a pretty good moral.

Detailing On The Back Of The Book:
The bestselling urban classic novel about a young woman coming of age in the late 1980s.
Tracy Ellison, a young knockout with tall hair and attitude, is living life as fast as she can. Motivated by the material world, she and her friends love and leave the young men who will do anything to get next to them. Its only when the world of gratuitous sex threatens heartbreak that Tracy begins to examine her life, her goals, and her sexuality.
For those in a reading group or reading Flyy Girl with a reading group you must come up with your own questions to ask the group. The book does not have its own or a set of questions that comes within it. I hope you enjoy Flyy Girl as I did and until next time.
