SISTER SOULJAH'S 'COLDEST WINTER EVER' SEQUEL 'MIDNIGHT: A GANGSTER LOVE STORY' BOOK COVER REVEALED. JUST DON'T JUDGE THE BOOK BY ITS COVER.

Avid readers such as myself, I'mma need yall to brace yourselves. In case you didn't know it or not, we're only six weeks away from the debut of Sister Souljah's Midnight: A Gangster Love Story, the much-anticipated (damn near 10 years in the making) sequel to her best-selling novel The Coldest Winter Ever. As I perused the book forum on LSA, I came upon a thread where the cover art for Midnight was posted. Check it out by clicking on the picture to your left. Like I said in the blog title, let's not judge the book by its cover. I mean, for real. In all reality Midnight (the main character in the sequel) would have to be at least in his mid to late thirties right about now, right? So why does the dude on the cover look as if he just started his sophomore year in high school?! That is not the business. Lord, we got to do better. When I close my eyes and picture Midnight, I see actors like Morris Chestnut, Lance Gross or Terrell Carter portraying him. Not young dude on the cover. Let's just pray that the contents of the book doesn't mirror it's 'what the hell was she thinking?!?' cover. Who knows? Maybe there's a big surprise waiting for us that could explain lil man. Everything in me tells me Sister Souljah will not let us down. Truth be told: I've already pre-ordered my copy through Amazon.com. So in essence, I really don't give a damn about the book cover. Okay, well maybe just a little bit, but not a whole lot. Besides, I've waited too long for this book! On the other hand, that doesn't mean that I don't think the cover's cheesy as hell!

Moving on. Now, I have yet to see an updated synopsis of the book, so check this post out to read what I do have. In the meantime and in between time what I do know is that the book will be distributed in hardcover and will be released nationally on Tuesday, November 4th. And needless to say, I can't wait!!

"The Coldest Winter Ever" is one of my favorite books so I'm with you on your theory. Please let that man on the cover NOT be Midnight. They couldn't get Lance Gross or anyone else??? Things that make me go hmm....

In Midnight she doesnt even mention Winter or her family.
