I reviewed "Everything is Everything" by Pepper Pace from the "Scandalous Heroes Box Set."

** Four Stars **

I'm not usually one for stories set in the recent past. This novel takes place in the 1970s-1980s in the poor section of time, or the "ghetto" as noted by the book. The first part takes place in Vanessa's early teens, living on the upper side with her mother who works two jobs. She has her school, homework, best friend who's her cousin, and a gang of girls to hang/protect her. She meets and crushes on the only white fella, Scotty, whose hard core older half brother runs the drug trade. It follows their ups and downs in the crazy hard, but sometimes sweet life in their neighborhood.
Second part covers the later teens to early adulthood of Vanessa turning 18. Living with another relative due to a past tragedy, her life has been completely separate from those she grew with. Attending an arts school, having an amazing voice and an amazing future don't stop Vanessa and Scotty's love from happening all over again.
Seriously sad, true, and no holds on the reality, I surprising could not put this book down. It's a definite portrayal of what it must of have been to live in the neighborhood, trying to get out from a cycle of poverty, and loving someone who is outside the norm. Vanessa’s innocent and gentle spirit shine through the book as a backdrop to Scotty’s desperate survival for goodness. Reader, if you like reality and don't mind learning how "everything is everything" for real, pick up this novel!
