Publisher Comments:

"With authority and grace" (Essence), Imani All Mine tells the story of Tasha, a fourteen-year-old unwed mother of a baby girl. In her ghettoized world where poverty, racism, and danger are daily struggles, Tasha uses her savvy and humor to uncover the good hidden around her. The name she gives her daughter, Imani, is a sign of her determination and fundamental trust despite the odds against her: Imani means faith. Surrounding Tasha and Imani is a cast of memorable characters: Peanut, the boy Tasha likes, Eboni, her best friend, Miss Odetta, the neighborhood gossip, and Tasha's mother, Earlene, who's dating a new boyfriend.

Tasha's voice speaks directly to both the special pain of poverty and the universal, unconquerable spirit of youth. Authentic in every detail, this is an unforgettable story. As Seventeen declared, "Porter's candid narrative will have you hooked from the opening sentence."

Synopsis:

Connie Porter's first novel, ALL BRIGHT COURT, was greeted nationwide by the highest critical acclaim. In her new novel, Porter returns to the ghettoized world of Buffalo, New York, with the wonderfully affecting story of Tasha, fourteen years old and the unwed mother of a baby girl. Tasha is a remarkable character, a child mothering a child - spunky, sassy, brimming with the hopefulness and frank wisdom of youth despite her circumstances. The name she gives her daughter, Imani, is a sign of her determination and fundamental trust: Imani means faith. "Mama say I'm grown now because I got Imani. She say Imani all mine. I know she all mine, and I like it just like that, not having to share my baby with no one." Narrated in Tasha's street-smart and lyrical voice, Imani All Mine tracks Tasha's progress as she navigates her journey to adulthood in an increasingly violent world.

Synopsis:

In this beautifully realized novel from the acclaimed author of "All-Bright Court, " the unwed mother of a baby girl narrates, in her lyrical, street-smart voice, her progress on her journey to adulthood in an increasingly violent world.

Imani All mine was an excellent book. It gives alot of prespective to people who dontt understand the the trials and troubles that young mothers go through. This book has such a heart warming plot that i believe not only young people would enjoy this book but adults as well would have a great time reading this book. I believe that when your reading this book you become apart of Tasha and Imani, You come to love them and you come to feel for everything they are going through. This book is a great free reading book. Once you start you won't stop.

i think imani all mine is a very good. this is a the first book that i read all the book. that means i was the best book i have ever read. but i think tasha went through so much in ger life that imani was the only good thing for her. i can read this book every day if i had the time. but like i said this is a very good book.
