It's only when the world of gratuitous sex threatens heartbreak that Tracy begins to examine her life, her goals, and her sexuality.

It took me awhile to get into the story but once it picked up halfway through it became a good read. The parents were disconnected from their kids until they were almost grown. I felt for Raheema it took Mercedes being on drugs and coming back for help for their father to see the error in his ways. Dave was no better and neither was Patti. He left for nine years but pacified Tracy with gifts and Patti by paying the bills until she got tired of it. Carmen used what she got until she got what she wanted. I liked Jantel. I thought Tracy was better off with Bruce. Timmy and Victor were both destined for jail. I like the transition Tracy made at the in from being superficial to finding out who she is a woman. But from reading the follow up snippet it seems that didn't last long.

I give this book a five star for capturing an unremarkable and phenomenal African American coming-of-age story. The book ‘FLYY GIRL’ by Omar Tyree follows Tracy Ellison from her sixth birthday party in 1977 to her 17th birthday while she experience’s the generous, hip-hop 1980s as well as the effects of the cocaine economy that flourishes in black communities in Philadelphia. Tracy is a pretty and intelligent but sassy mouth young lady who is also boy crazy, and I was able to watch as her physical maturation leads to increasing sexual activity and how her mental maturation grew throughout the book. Tyree not only captures black language as it is spoken among the people Tracy encounters but also the essence of Philadelphia. Tyree’s description of fast girls was spot on. And the conversation of teenagers caught in a highly pressured sexual atmosphere who were practicing the sexuality before they were old enough only furthered the real like feel of the book. As a reader, a teenager and a native to Philadelphia, I couldn’t help but feel as if I was in the book as if I lived around the corner from Tracy. I not only connected with each character through Tyree’s brief but excellent descriptions but I connected with each situation presented upon Tracy which takes place in my community every day. Even though the book took place in the unique perspective of life of the 80’s, it could easily be turned around to reflect 21st century views which makes the book so timeless.

Selected as EyeCU Reading's book of the month, "Flyy Girl" was my very first Omar Tyree read and I must say... I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!

Written with such relatable detail and well developed characters, I could easily envision the movie. "Flyy Girl" takes you on Tracy Ellison's coming of age journey of a provocative "IT GIRL". With an endless designer wardrobe, hazel eyes, looks that girls envied and a stream of hormonal lil boys for her choosing... TRACY WAS OUT THERE! This classic read left no stone unturned! The break-ups to make-ups, bad influences and the lessons learned.

Had it not been for the countless errors, I would have definitely given this read 5 STARS but nonetheless BRAVO!

There are some worthwhile things about this story, particularly the way a young woman processes how her father treats her mother and subconsciously acts out similar patterns. The writing itself is not of high literary quality, but it's fun to read and easily accessible and could be useful in getting young girls of color interested in reading. The characters are interesting and engaging. While I didn't appreciate it as good "literature," I did enjoy it enough that I wanted to know what would happen to the characters, so I respect what the author has accomplished.

Flyy Girl by Omar Tyree was a selected read by our book club. Tyree had me reminiscing back on my teenage years but it was not with great fondness. This "urban mean girls" was too long, drawn out, and certain sections of the book were unnecessary. I might have enjoyed this book 20 years ago, but as an adult, the poor decisions of teenagers and their parents don't interest me at all. I guess I expected more. Well there is always hope for the movie.

I give the book only 4 stars because there was no big climax in the book. It was just the happenings of a young girl growing up in Philly. I read this book when I was 12 or 13 and remembering that I LOVED it then. So I purchased a new copy (I'm 28 now) and as an adult I like this book a lot and would recommend it. I just wish there was something BIG that happened in the book.. some type of plot twist. something??? It was nice to see how she and her friends matured over the period of the book and definitely brought back memories of my own. And def "taught" me a couple of lessons for my life as it currently stands.

Ive read the reviews for the two follow-up books - unfortunately won't be getting those because the reviews are scathing but this book was a good read.

I rated this book 5 stars because I believe everyone has a place in this book. Although I was born in the late 80's I still felt as if I was in that time. The book was everything someone could want in a story. This story is mainly from viewpoint of a young girl named Tracy; it's about her family,friends, and all the people she encounters who make impressions on her life. I read a comment where someone thought that this book moved to fast and it wasn't descriptive enough, but that's the fun part about this book when you read it picture it the way it happened to you. It truly was a trip down a lane that I will never remember, but enjoyed believing that I did.
I read this year's ago and came across it in Kindle Unlimited recently, and read it again. Still a great read. It brought back so many great memories of growing up in Philly back in the 80's.
