    I hear Sins of the Father and I think crime novel or mystery thriller but not a badass middle grade novel about three teenage black girls with superpowers That said, as you read the book the title makes perfect sense It s fun and it had me laughing genuinely as an adult without kids I hesitate in calling it badass because Thelonious Legend was very age appropriate and had no profanity in the book, but I just can t find a appropriate word.The Parker sisters are affluent, intelligent, and athleti [...]

    OK, disclaimer Thelonious Legend is my pen name and I actually wrote the book so hell yeah I m going to give it five stars But don t let that dissuade you from reading it I have it on high authority that it might be the best book ever written and will undoubtedly change your life Or so I ve been told.

    This book was well written I mostly enjoy how the book isn t dumbed down Most of the books I ve read explain things readers already know and don t give the reader a lot of inference I find that slightly offensive, to under estimate your readers For example, the burning flames danced around the room Again, I absolutely love the description and picture painting, but seriously Burning flames I know fire is hot and flames burn I understand that many authors don t do this on purpose and actually ma [...]

    Do not let the cover or the synopsis of this story fool you into thinking that this story is just for youngsters I am a proud member of the 40 club, and I can t remember enjoying a story than Sins Of The Father I haven t laughed this much, reading a story in I don t know how long And as the title of the story implies, the father done f cked up The story begins with a scientific experiment gone wrong, and you re initially confused as to what this has to do with the Parker sisters Eve, Gwen, and [...]

    Not your typical middle grade read, but essential.I teach creative writing to middle school students in Detroit Michigan The dilemma is, and always has been, trying to find literature that empowers my students, not limits them Enter, Sins of the Father The Powerpuff Girls meets Charlie s Angels in living colour SOTF brings diversity to the genre like never before We can put a person of color in the White House, but not in a cape and definitely not in mainstream literature, the forbidden frontier [...]

    So I literally just finished reading this book, not even an hour ago so everything is very fresh in my mind.Therefore I may have to come back and change somethings once I ve had time to truly mull this amazing book over.This is the authors debut novel and WOW he comes straight out of the gate rearing to go.It was fast paced, energetic drama from the first page to the last and I know the rest of the series will only get better as Thelonious Legend s writing style improves and evolves.I loved that [...]


    Milan

    This book is definitely one of the better Young Adult books out there It s a nice acknowledgment of the realistic side of the science fiction genre The journey the three sisters take will have you laughing and crying right along with them With highlights of action, humor, romance and some illegal adventures and procedures, this book is sure to warm its way close to your heart Although the book is a little choppy with it s scenes, it s a well written novel overall Amazingly written for both youn [...]


    Indy

    This was a great book It was different from anything else I ve ever read First of all, it was funny, action packed, and overall, just left you hanging on the edge of your chair I loved the prologue and the descriptive style Mr Legend uses Second of all, it was unique Overtime many of us readers find ourselves reading stories with the same plot lines and the names of characters changed to make the book seem different This book was completely original and had many hidden gems in it I d definitely [...]


    The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears

    This was an awesome, fast paced adventure that had a cinematic quality and plenty of diversity The action and the humor never let up I enjoyed the sisterly dynamic between Eve, Gwen and Ana And it s refreshing to read about well to do and achieving Black families Though mom and dad Barry and Michelle wink wink were the loving, if slightly overprotective types Everything about this novel was top notch the adventure, the mystery, high school drama, sisters who differ yet have each other s backs Th [...]

    Sins of the Father by Thelonious Legend is a middle grade speculative fiction novel set around the lives of the Parker sisters, Eve, Gwen, and Ana who discover that they have super powers Eve cans suddenly move so fast it is like everyone else has stopped moving, while Gwen can bench press five times her own body weight and is virtually indestructible, and Ana, who has always been smart has now upped her math skills exponentially.But these new powers come at a price and the Parker sisters must f [...]

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review I was excited for this book because I m in constant search for a book with African American protagonist where we don t see any of the African American stereo types I can t stress the importance of books featuring African American characters where the protagonist must over come to temptation of drugs and gangs, or where the character is affected by absentee parents, teen pregnancy, or abuse There are children who grew up in tho [...]

    I give this book a solid 3.5 stars I loved the characters We have an incredibly huge shortage of books that involve marginalized characters that are not trying to escape the hood barrio rez and I was so excited to see a book about not only about Black girls but Black girls who also had privilege in the form of financial security The storyline was interesting and I loved the ending, the way it wrapped but fairly nicely but also left room for the series to be continued The only real issues I had w [...]


    N.D.

    Its s always nice and far too rare to read young, African American female youths written as super heroines That s what I most enjoyed and appreciated about this book There were good scenes of humor, drama, and action The relationship between the sisters, especially the squabbling, rang true I will say that having three lead characters is a lot, especially when there are so many other characters for the reader to get to know And the dialogue, while good overall, was too adult in places for some o [...]

    I am an avid reader Sometimes theymake it to my list and sometimes they do not THIS book had be LOL at times I read this after a particularly difficult time in our lives, and after reading very heavy theological writings, conflict resolution matters, and abuse recovery literature counseling items THIS BOOK TOTALLY FIT WHAT I NEEDED TO TAKE A BREAK AND JUST LAUGH Well written and just a good story I have given it to my niece 13 to read and have given the title to my youth group friends and friend [...]

    Geraldine Young Experience this read on page turner Get ready for laughter, fun, the unexpected and some anxiety as these sisters journey through some extraordinary escapades Some scenes are so vivid that as a female adult reader my motherly concerns would kick in Their sisterly comradery, competitive spirits, diverse talents and abilities makes for delightful action packed reading from start to finish Looking forward to the next edition


    Bree Hodges

    Fun read To me, this book was a fast, fun filled journey and I really enjoyed reading about the characters and plot


    Andrew Bernstein

    Solid 4 star Mr Legend s first book is a fun read As the father of a teen girl I enjoy reading books with strong capable teen girl characters Definitely a clean YA book, but accesible and enjoyable for all ages The book is funny, the main characters are well rounded, individual and ocmplete and the story feels like it has a conclusion but is obviously left open for future adventures which I plan to read.


    Dawn

    Good book Looking forward to reading sequel

    When I first started this book, I will be honest with you and say I wasn t very intrigued I just didn t see the purpose of the introduction That part just confused the heck out of me and it took me a while for me to get involved into the book Let s go on to the characters I don t really like to put up long reviews, I like to get straight to the point The first character I met was Eve, and I liked her character She is just the perfect amount of normal I needed from the book Gwen on the other hand [...]

    Thelonious Legend is an amazing sci fi writer that I met via twitter, he hosts the BlackWritersChat and the BlackComicsChat monthly We followed each other and now I am honored to be reviewing his latest book Sins of The Father What I love about Thelonious, is he is one of the many authors I have discovered via twitter that are always campaigning for diversity in not just books, but all forms of media Sins of The Father, without giving too much away, is a book about 3 African American sisters wh [...]

    I m a sucker for geeky, indie creative media made with love I sat down intending to just start this book which I received a review copy of for a book tour on my blog and stayed up late to finish the whole thing That doesn t usually happen to me, I m very protective of my bedtime But by the time I was halfway through the book, I needed to know how it ended.Four reasons why it hooked me so well 1 Multiple female lead characters, with diversity of personality, appearance, and motivations among them [...]


    Grace (LovingDemBooks) Z.

    Okay There is actually a lot of potential in this book.I thought it had editing issues.Another thing is, is that there are three main characters in this book The book is told in third person I personally would have liked it much better if the book was told in three separate perspectives so that way I could connect with the characters better.Also, there really isn t a lot of plot and character development That was another thing that bothered me.I also felt like I was reading a galley instead of a [...]

    Sins of the Father left me on a happy note, and I m glad I ve read it Thelonious Legend provided me with an ebook copy of this book for an honest review And here it comes Bad thingsI ll start with the not so good things first.Sometimes it was a little slow, and I was confused at what was going on, but that s probably partly my fault.The cover didn t really go with me The cover is only a small thing though, and it s bright and bold.When I finish a book I like everything wrapped up well and happil [...]


    Erin Skiller

    I m really terrible at review but here goes This book is a First reads.I really enjoyed reading Sins of the Father It was an engaging story about 3 sisters coming together to over come a huge obstacle I loved how each sister had a unique personality and behaviour which complimented their super power, and the fact that even though they didn t get along at times they could still work together and achieve their goals The characters had quite believable traits and characteristics even though the pos [...]


    Claudia

    One of the better young adult books I ve read this year, the characters are well developed there s no annoying love triangle and no I turned sixteen today, something big is gonna happen I just know it Three sisters, each with there own challenges and personalities gain powers that defy the laws of science Racing against time they need to find out how to cure the side effects or essentially they re dead Well written and exciting this book was fun to read.The only issue I had with this book is tha [...]


    Kevin Wayne Williams

    I read this book in preparation for a podcast for Black Girl Nerds, as Thelonious, Tiffany Davis, and I were all being interviewed.Thelonious has done an excellent job of updating a traditional YA theme three teenage girls having big adventures under their parents noses, a theme which probably began with Nancy Drew in the thirties , incorporating a modern science fiction sensibility and a ethnically diverse cast of characters It provides a positive image for black girls that want to read books [...]


    L.A. Hendricks

    Slow start, but fantastic ending It took me a while to get into this book I initially had some trouble adjusting to the rhythm and pacing not to mention those three middle school sisters with vocabularies stronger than most adults But once the book began exploring the relationships the sisters had with each other, with their parents and with their classmates, the story became much engrossing Having had at various times Eve s standoffishness, Gwen s forcefulness and Ana s Super Dork iness I just [...]


    Misty Iputi

    Sins of the Father was a fun and exciting book to read Once I started to read it I could not put it down The ideas and scrapes the sisters get themselves into had me laughing to myself I am giving this book a 5 5 star as I finished it in one night and was chuckling throughout it PERSONAL NOTEI wanted to read a book that was fun and upbeat and this is what I needed It also showed though how no matter how different sisters are or no matter how much they fight they will stick together when they nee [...]
