Grid Review: Hustle: Street Power by Jonathan Copeland
Author’s summary: Hustle: Street Power is the captivating story of Nice Davidson, a young man near the end of his high school career who looks forward to moving on in life.
When the street life that was present during his early childhood reappears in the form of his mother’s body strewn in pieces across the back porch, Nice incorporates creative thinking to find answers as he completes his educational goals.
He creates a business that catches the attention of the current street king, someone who wants to take advantage of Nice’s status as the child of a previous kingpin. Nice needs to know who he can trust to have his back when he can no longer distinguish the line between friend and foe.
Overall Impression: The eBook price for this book is $9.99, and the print book price is $12.97.
Based on the book cover and the summary, I settled in for an exciting read!
All I can say is thank goodness a friend lent this book to me to get my impression of its content. Had I spent either amount for the book, I would be even more disappointed with it than the disappointment I felt when reading it. I only recently started speaking to my friend again, and that was only because I wanted to know why he would inflict the excruciating pain of this book on me.
First, the version of the book I read doesn’t contain anything about the main character finding “his mother’s body strewn in pieces across the back porch.”
Second, the book contained a plethora of errors in spelling/grammar/punctuation.
Third, the book was just down-right, unequivocally unbelievable. There are four scenes in particular that made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

There are actually more than four things I could point out that are wrong with this book, but I’m going to pass, so I can complete this review.
Let me end by saying that the reason my friend said he wanted me to read this book, and give him my overall impression, is because he saw on Twitter that the author is making the book into a movie. 😐
I’ve decided not to include buy links for this book, because I don’t think its purchase is a wise investment. That’s just my personal opinion, though. You might want to buy it, but I’m not going to make it a one-click process from the Index.
