Whenever I am asked what my favorite fiction book is, I always answer ‘The Coldest Winter Ever’ by Sister Souljah so to say I was excited to read ‘A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story’ would be an understatement. Porsche is Winter’s younger sister and this is her story told from her point of view. A Deeper Love Inside seems to pick up right where The Coldest Winter left off and Porsche is a young teen in a world of trouble.
Sister Souljah takes us into this young girl’s journey throughout the juvenile detention system, through group homes, through being on the run, and ultimately to finding her place in the world. Porsche is her father Rickey’s daughter as she is a hustler just like him. She also worships her sister Winter so it is in her blood to do whatever is necessary to survive.
Sister Souljah has an amazing ability to make the reader feel as if they are Porsche and experiencing her trials and tribulations as if they are their own. ‘The Coldest Winter Ever’ and ‘A Deeper Love Inside’ are considered to be of the street lit genre, but both are unlike any street lit book I have ever read. Souljah uses her unique voice that makes you seem to forget that the main characters in her books: Winter, Rickey, Midnight, Porsche, and some new supporting characters are not the most upstanding citizens in society. You feel for them, you empathize with their situations, and even if you did not grow up and/or lived in their type of environments, you somehow seem to understand their thought process.
Yes, it has been several years since ‘The Coldest Winter Ever’ was released, but ‘A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story’ was well worth the wait. All street lit authors need to read Sister Souljah’s books and learn how to develop a story that goes beyond the typical brand name dropping genre stereotype. Oh, and let me end this by saying, Winter and Midnight make appearances in ‘A Deeper Love Inside’ so that is a definite bonus!
