Tracy Nicole has been an invaluable resource and mentor for the ladies of Elite Sisterhood, Inc. Elite Sisterhood, Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to prepare young ladies for postsecondary education through the development of leadership, positive self-image, and community service. At our annual leadership retreat, Tracy conducted a workshop titled “My Self-Esteem= My Success”. She engaged the young ladies in intimate discussions regarding the ways in which they perceive themselves in society. Tracy’s workshop included role-playing sessions in which the ladies had the unique opportunity to “act out” realistic situations they are confronted with on a daily basis. The workshop was so powerful that many of the girls shed tears as they explained the issues they grapple with in their pursuit to build positive self-images. Nonetheless, Tracy was so inspirational and so genuine that she had a profound impact on the young ladies, and as a result we have developed an ongoing partnership with her.  We have adopted her workbooks as part of our curriculum, and we are excited for the lasting impact these workshops will have on the young ladies in Elite Sisterhood, Inc.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The book highlighted the struggles of both young men and women as they search for identity and purpose and the impact it has on the decisions they make. I read the book in 2 days as I was interested to see what was going happen next to each of the characters and what revelations they would have. I hope to share this book with the young people that I work with in my programs. I believe that this book can be an inspiration to all. Excellent Job Ms. Nicole!!

I’m on my second read of “Who Said Peaches Were Perfect” and I have to admit, it’s just as good (if not better) the second time around! The characters are great and I’ve become so intrigued by what they will do next that I don’t want to put the book down. A true page turner! A great book to read while traveling, on your day off, or on a Sunday morning, “Who Said Peaches Were Perfect” will have you wondering what happens AFTER the book. I’d love to see a Part II!! Great work!

I think Tracy Nicole is here to stay!! I found WHO SAID PEACHES WERE PERFECT to be a rewarding read. Not only were the characters well developed but there were so many messages embedded in the text. It is great to see an author tackle pressing issues affecting so many communities yet deliver it in such a profound way. Looking forward to the next!!!

Tracy Nicole is a new and captivating voice!  In a story that grabs your attention from the first page, Who Said Peaches Were Perfect takes on difficult and emotional issues that are frequently occurring yet seemingly are dealt with too many times in silence.  Tracy Nicole has created realistic, three dimensional characters that many people will

relate to.  This first effort on her part is what I hope to be the beginning of a fresh new series!

I’m a guy and I can tell you that once I started to read it I could not put it down…Everyone either knows someone like one of the characters or has been one of the characters. This novel is well written and has no dull or boring gaps that leave you clueless! My hat goes off to Tracy Nicole…job well done!!

- Eric Thomas, FaceBook

 

This is a great read for males and females of various ages. It exposes the hurt, deception, and lack of dealing with issues that many of us, or even those close to us know as a part of their life. The characters are realistic and easily relatable. It is a story that teaches and exposes some of the hard lessons in life that we all at some point must learn. This is a must read for college students because it sheds light and a new perspective on the way they feel, and in some instances the situations that they go through as well. If you are looking for a story with a message that is enjoyable without a preaching tone then this is the book for you. It is a guarantee that once you begin reading it you will not want to put it down — look forward to laughing out loud, smiling, and the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ while enjoying this real-life story.

“I STARTED READING THE BOOK AND FROM THE VERY FIRST PAGE I WAS IMMEDIATELY DRAWN IN. I COULDN’T PUT THE BOOK DOWN AND I READ THE FIRST 8 CHAPTERS OF THE BOOK DURING MY HAIR APPOINTMENT. I ORDERED TWO COPIES ONE FOR ME AND A FRIEND, AND I CAN’T WAIT TO RECEIVE THE BOOK IN THE MAIL. I COULDN’T STOP LAUGHING OUT LOUD. THIS BOOK IS AN AWSOME READ AND IT IS VERY ENTERTAINING.”

-KEISHA DILLINGHAM

 

What an amazing book! After reading the first page, I was immediately engaged! The author did a wonderful job delivering the message from a gender neutral perspective allowing the reader to automatically visualize what was occurring during each storyline and passage. As a guy I would highly recommend this book to any male and definitely suggest for women of all ages. I am saving this book for my daughter to read when she becomes of age.
