Have you thought of someplace nice? Ooh, that sounds nice. So should I go ahead and book a ticket for you. Margaret started kissing the doll. Laci laughed and playfully threw a pillow at her. Then take that! She pounded Laci repeatedly with a pillow and began to laugh hysterically. Margaret asked out of breath, getting in another hit. Wait, wait, Laci said, reaching for her ringing Mickey Mouse phone on the nightstand next to the bed.
Laci, her mother called from behind her, You want to catch a movie or go to dinner tonight? You know. I said do you wanna go out and celebrate tonight? With graduation right around the corner and you going off to college, I figured that was cause enough for us to get out of this house and go do something. Okay, Mom. Laci then directed her attention back to the phone. Laci tried to hurry up and grab the pillow to get the last hit, but her mother was too quick and ran out of the room. Fooling around with my crazy mother.
We were having a pillow fight, Laci giggled. She wants to take me out tonight. Laci should have seen it coming. Monique had been living with her grandmother for the last few years. Her mother died when she was just a freshman in high school. You sound like a white girl. Look, Laci huffed, was there a reason for this call, or did you just feel like starting another argument? Never mind, Monique said, sucking her teeth.
Forget it. Go hang out with your mommy. Peace out. Laci was confused. Her face revealed the frustration she endured on a daily basis as a result of interacting with her homegirls. It was safe to say that she was the prima donna of the pack. She definitely had the most going for her; sweet and laid back, Laci was the complete opposite of her loud, foul-mouthed friends from the South Bronx.
Born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Laci was living the lifestyle of the rich and famous compared to her girls. Her mother was white and a former model featured in such magazines as Sports Illustrated, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour. Her dad, Jay Johnson, was black and a corporate lawyer. Although Laci and her girls lived in the same borough, they lived worlds apart. It probably would have been in her best interest to not associate with a group of around-the-way girls. Some of those girls wanted to be her, and it was only a matter of time before jealousy would rear its ugly head.
Margaret asked, noticing the sudden change in her disposition. Laci sighed. Everything I say is bad. Like us having money, or you and I being so close. Laci sighed again, falling back on the bed. When I talk about you and me going shopping, they get all uptight. Margaret asked, concerned. She walked over to the bed and sat down next to Laci. Laci nodded. I just want to hang with them, you know? Margaret remained silent. Laci sighed again. And why is it that you want to hang out with them? Laci thought for a moment. I just like hanging out with more down-to-earth people I can relate and talk to.
I love talking to you, but I need girls my age to kick it with.
Margaret threw her hands up in surrender as she got up from the bed and walked over to the door. She thought it was just what her seventeen-year-old daughter needed after such a traumatic year.

Then, the family was living in Philadelphia, where Jay Johnson was a successful and well-known corporate attorney, one of the few in town who were black. This particular night, the two of them had decided to go see Beaches. Laci was standing in line at the cineplex for popcorn, while her mother was in the bathroom, when she noticed that the girl in front of her had forgotten her change. The girl was both shocked and impressed.
Crackhead by Lisa Lennox
Most people, rich or poor, would have taken that money and spent it at the concession stand or pocketed it. The girl had never met anyone that honest. Oh, okay. Damn, this bitch must be paid , the girl thought. My name is Tonette. No, no crew. Laci looked down and noticed the letters SBB.
I just go to school and hang out with my mom. Are you? Tonette nodded her head politely and thought for a minute.

Crackhead : A Novel by Lisa Lennox (2012, Paperback)
Lennox has an obvious talent for story-telling and with certain adjustments she could really live up to her potential. There is a serious lack of editing, as I seem to find with a lot of self-published and urban fiction books, and this takes a lot away from a book. No one wants a car that breaks down once you get on t This is an okay urban fiction book but what bugs me is that it could have been a lot better. No one wants a car that breaks down once you get on the highway. So why do authors find it okay to put out low quality products? And why do readers accept it? The story of Laci and Dink didn't make sense at times, along with the rest of the SBB's and other characters.
It just didn't mesh the way it should have to make the story flow and I found myself with a lot of questions I did love the ending however - that was the best part of Crack Head 2 by far. I would read another book by Lennox but I hope that someone gets through to her the importance of quality - the importance of making sure a product with your name on it is good quality. If she gets that right and works a little harder I honestly think she could move towards the top.

Well I finally read it and it was good, I'm glad Lacie got her revenge and all but personally I feel she was stupid for keeping a baby that could possibly be addicted to crack, and further more she needed to stay with Dink, they could have worked out if she stayed, I don't know that's just my personal opinion. That is why this book gets 4 stars unlike Crack Head 1. Apr 11, Na'Tisha Riley rated it really liked it. This series is a good suggestion to all young girls.
It really shows them by falling to peer pressure and not being a leader can really mess up their lives. The part I didn't like was the ending for Laci and Dink. Apr 17, Tahasti Hopper rated it really liked it. Betty Blaise, or Fly Betty to those who truly know her, was not in it to be a wife or even the baby momma of a wealthy public figure — she had her sights set higher, much higher. While most of these women use sex as their weapon of choice, Betty, a senior majoring in psychology, has developed a weapon that proves much more powerful.
Up until now Betty has lived her life according to her own strict rules and standards, refusing to compromise for anyone, even if it potentially meant shielding herself from true love. But when she encounters a man that she would never have anticipated falling for in a million years, soon, the very rules Betty once lived and died by are going to be put to the test.
The very tools she used so effectively against wealthy men begin to turn against her — and deadly consequences are sure to follow. Similar ebooks. Crackhead II: A Novel. Lisa Lennox.
