My Review
Gabrielle got into her share of trouble when she was younger.  She ended up moving into an apartment with her dad.  Her sister Dee moved into their grandma's house along with their mom.  Gabrielle became involved with a boy named Tre' .  He seemed like such a nice guy and she couldn't wait to have a future with him.    Boy was she in for a surprise.

Gabrielle turned out to be such a nice young woman, but she just didn't seem to have the self-confidence that she needed.  She just let herself stay in situations that she should not have been in.  She was way too nice to Tre'.    The words that Tre' used to describe Gabrielle--COME ON!  He should have looked in the mirror first because he had no place to talk!  She really should have went with her instincts, but she learned the hard way.

I really enjoyed reading Misconceptions!  It was a page turner and was a quick read. C. Hayes came up with characters that were believable and a scenerio that is all too real.    There were a few typographical errors and spelling errors, but nothing that made the book difficult to read.  I would recommend this book!
