The Cook Up


Let’s just straight to it: I liked it. I think you will too. Why, you ask? Well, if you watched and enjoyed The Wire, then you will get that same vibe with this book. Based in Baltimore, readers are allowed a glimpse into D.’s life in the fast lane, filled with drugs, murder, and redemption. Unlike many characters from The Wire, D. was fortunate, and yes, smart enough to know that living that life wasn’t going to last. I won’t tell you all the deets, but I will say that this memoir is enjoyable, fast-paced, and has a happy ending. We love happy endings, right?! Although the street life is nothing to laugh about, D. is quite entertaining, and I loved his wit and humor. So, check it out!


I received a copy from Netgalley to read and review.
