Live and Learn By Niobia Bryant



This is a story about 4 girls who have grown up together since about college. Each girl has their differences, from the loud one to the quiet one; the serious career oriented one to the wild one; but despite their differences, between them they share the daily issues happening across women, particularly black women ranging from man issues to self discovery.


This book was recommended by a friend (who kept going on about it) at first I thought this would be a typical urban book, however a deep message does lie beneath the pages. I enjoyed how the author diverted from one woman’s story to the other, with each giving a new emotion. It’s a good read, there are thought provoking moments, although I did feel the ending was weak (there is a part 2, but I didn’t jump to my feet to purchase it), there were moments where I could predict the end.

Why the Title?

This book had direction; it showed the journey of 4 girls and the actions and consequences to the path they chose to take. The book looked at typical issues faced by women, particularly in the black community; the book looks at dating, drugs, motherhood and religion in a realistic light, through the eyes of 4 best friends who are learning invaluable lessons as they go through life.

Part 2 of this book is called Show and Tell
