Book Review: ‘Never Lose Your Head for A Little Bit Of Tail’

front cover onlyInterview by Naomi K. Bonman

TEMECULA, CA- As women we are bombarded by how we “think” we should conduct ourselves by what’s portrayed in the media. The media has portrayed, Black women in particular, to as promiscuous and loud individuals with little to no class. This misjudgment often clouds ones thinking and alters decisions that lead to life mistakes.

I recently interviewed the author of ‘A Little Bit of Tail’. Miss Cherry wanted to make a difference in the lives of woman, so she decided to put together a format where young ladies can not only relate to what is going on through the pages of the book, but also learn as well. She wants other women to know that it is okay to make mistakes because we all do, but we have to learn from them and be able to move forward. Our mistakes should not hinder us, but they should give us that extra boost and strength to move on.

‘A Little Bit of Tale’ is a fast paced, page turning novel about what happens when love clouds judgments, alters decisions and leaves you hanging out to dry on a limb by your lonesome. Throughout the book the reader will witness powerful storylines that combines real life stories of the most humiliating and embarrassing mistakes women have made in love. It is full of secrets they would rather take to the grave out of shame and fear of being judged. The book is a tool to expose actual heartaches by giving women the chance to learn from other women’s mistakes in love so they do not make all the mistakes by themselves. The moral of the story is to never lose your head over ‘A Little Bit of Tail’.
