Meesh, Myself and I by Shelli Marie
3 out of 5 stars
556 Book Chicks is still wondering what the hell this book is about...
This damn book was confusing as hell. I am still trying to figure out the overall purpose of story. Me'Shellay (aka Meesh) experienced a lot of heart aches from a young age...her best friend (almost boyfriend) was gunned down at the park one day and then her mother was hauled off to prison. Meesh was sent to live with her aunt and uncle in California. She ends up getting pregnant but the hospital takes the baby away from her. With nothing else to hold on to, Meesh packs up and returns to the only place she knows as home, Portland.
I am not trying to ruin the story or tell you all about the book (and I have left some things out), but I was hoping if I gave you all the information you would HELP me figure out what the book is about. Anywho, Meesh is now set up in Portland and she meets her neighbor Kerron. They hit off and start kicking it, but somehow he introduces her to one of his friends Sanders. She ends up dating Sanders...I know I know she doing too much right now! And you would think this leads up to some type of love triangle (well she is kind of still seeing both of them) but there is no fighting over her...NOTHING! Then Kerron just up and disappears (leaves her with a cell phone) and she is left with Sanders, and they start their life together.
When I say purpose - let me clarify - you know how when a book reaches its pinnacle and then all the chips start to fall into place and you begin to see the whole puzzle instead of just the pieces. This book was missing that and I sure hope part II brings more insight into what the hell this book is supposed to be about...yes I am still confused. It could have been a great book with a little more thought into where the book was supposed to lead you. Hmmmmm! Maybe we will get it figured out in Part II.
