I am from Trinidad and I do identify the the characters in the book who are from there, however I have to disagree with many of the cultural phrases and themes mentioned. Some of these include the way Trinidadians speak..we dont say 'me' in place of 'I'and our music is called calypso and not reggae. I was very disappointed and hurt when I read that in the book. I would advise you to please do some more homework when you plan to include other countries and cultures in your book. However, I will continue reading your books because I think that you are a good author.
