    "Not exactly my cup of tea, but it has a goodly number of reviews on the web. So if you're an African-American female you might like these. And the Kindle version is only ten dollars, so go for it!"

    "This book is by blacks for blacks. It is full of the usual black complaints about society. It should be sent directly the the trash and ignored."

    "The third installment of the Choices series, Crossroads shows the growth and maturity of the characters. Skyy has done an amazing job of portraying very realistic black lesbian lives and their community. Buy the book, spread the word, leave a review and support this author."

    "Are these characters supposed to be a realistic depiction of African American lesbians? People as morally deficient as the ones described in this book are shocking. This really deserved a no star rating."

    "My home schooled teen daughter read this historical fiction novel for black history month. It's a well told story about an African-American girl who falls in love with a racist white girl. This story teaches a timeless lesson; it's tough to stand up to the crowd."

    "Well, given the topic? Not going to really be what you're looking for at all. So thus you're getting a zero. The book itself is average, nothing bad about it really. However, it simply doesn't shine."

    "My best friend is African-American and a lesbian. I wanted to surprise her with a gift that she would like, and so I tried this book. The plot line is about a strong Black woman, though it does not seem to be an explicitly lesbian plot. In any event, she really liked the novel!"
