Review: The Way We Roll

Will and Julian sucked me into the vortex of their opposing worlds from the first page. They were witty, physical, heartfelt and real. I recognised their voices, could see Julian’s swagger and felt Will’s attempts to keep Julian out of his life. I didn’t know who to barrack for when they fought.

Despite the fact Julian did time for assault and Will went to private school, the two had so much in common. Yet nothing was as it seemed. I inhaled the pages in my rush to discover Julian’s secret and was floored when I did. Is there a way back to wholeness after unimaginable betrayal? Can friendship be stronger than family?

A lot of traditional story lines were turned on their head in The Way We Roll. Before you pick up The Way We Roll be sure to set time aside. You won’t want to put it down. Believe me. The only regret I had was that the book wasn’t longer.
