4.5 Stars Of Pure Inspiation

"Carmen, Nicki, Sherry and Dani from Phat Girlz Club are back in this much anticipated sequel, Becoming Carmen, the coming of age story of Carmen, the gunslinging Señorita. Carmen, at the age of 10, killed the man who murdered her grandfather in their family's store. Witnessed by her friends, this life-defining moment changes the axis of Carmen's entire life.

Becoming Carmen is a story of survival, staying true to your heritage, and becoming the best part of yourself even with seemingly insurmountable odds. Cole, sensitively, captures the bonds of family, the unshakeable support system of life-long friends, PTSD and postpartum depression.

Becoming Carmen is a novel of strength, the strength it takes to become 'powerful today as women and as people'."

The Endurance Of Friendship, Captured Perfectly


"Angel Cole's Phat Girlz Club is an excellent summation of every woman's struggles. To do the right thing, to love yourself, to rise above adversity and to hold on to the ones you love.

Phat Girlz Club is gritty, it's sassy, it's diverse and it is absolutely delicious. Four best friends cemented together from adolescence to adulthood. Through tragedy, accidents, lifestyle choices and secrets, these four women endure.

Phat Girlz Club is about life-long friendship, through thick or thin. It's never losing sight of the ties that bind you and cherishing them always."

Good Storyteller

"Author is able to create a story that makes you feel that these girls really lived and you get a sense that the events in their lives happened to everyday women. Love that despite differences and hurts between the women, they stayed friends and spoke the truth to each other. Refreshing to read about deep friendships, look forward to more from Angel Cole!
