Shake It Down by M. Apostolina Review


Shake it Down by M. Apostolina
★★★★☆

Teresa was an amazing dancer who always captivated her audience. When she was dancing, no matter where she was, people always paid attention. Unfortunately, her dancing didn’t bring in enough money to provide for her and her sister Vianna, who she had been taking care of since they left Mexico when Vianna was a baby. Things changed when Teresa decided to open up her own club with the help of a friend, who was also an investor. Things soon spun out of control between Teresa and Vianna, which lead up to the discovery of a secret Teresa had been harboring for years.


I was genuinely impressed by Shake it Down. I began reading this without any expectations, and, while it took me a little bit to get into it, it was a great story. Once I got into the story, it was a fast read with a twist I never saw coming. A lot of the time, I can see a plot twist coming a mile away, but this time, I never saw it! I give the author high praise for this great feat because this is hard to do in today’s literature. 


The author did a great job with the depth of this story. There was meaning and real issues that the characters had to deal with in the story. I really like stories that are relatable and have real issues that aren’t over-stretched or over-dramatized. The author kept it real and interesting. I would read more of her work in the future. 


I received this book from the author for review.
