This book is basically about a promiscuous women and her love of money. Through out the book she is going through a lot of things like therapy because of how she grew up and dealing with her past. She deals with her 2 best friends which she is so ungrateful for. One of them, which is the reason for the books title , her best guy friend wants to be with her and she feels they are to good of friends to ruin what they have. He is always there for her and tries to please her but its never enough. Her other friend always criticizes her but only means to help her because she believes her friend can do a lot better than what she’s doing. She goes through an emotional breakdown that makes her want to take her life. In the end she still has her friends who help and stay with her through out the way she mistreats them and looks down upon them.
My opinion of this book is that it is very realistic and some people go through a lot stuff in life. I think looking back at this girls life, its sad how she feels she has to give up her body to live a more materialistic lifestyle.
I gave this book 5 stars because it was the first book I ever read that I didn’t want to put down.

Clotel; or, The President’s Daughter is an 1853 novel by United States author and playwright William Wells Brown, an escaped slave from Kentucky who was active on the anti-slavery circuit. Brown published the book in London, where he stayed to evade possible recapture due to the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act, but it is considered the first novel published by an African American and is set in the United States, reflecting the southern institution of slavery. Three additional versions were published through 1867.
