Comments Flyy Girl

  • Christina

    I had to read this book for an African American novel class. We finished reading classics by James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, George Schuyler, William Wells Brown, Ralph Ellison, etcen read Flyy Girl as an example of the new sub-genre of the urban novel within African American literature. While it was an easy read and elicited a smile at times, it was a VERY poorly written novel that made me wince several times at the unsophisticated style and lack of literary style. I [...]

    This was a great book that prompted me to read other books by the author. Unfortunately, this book was a "one hit wonder" compared to the author's later releases.

  • Roy

    This book certainly has its fair share of fans. It didn't connect with me personally but many strongly disagree, so victory for Mr. Tyree. He must have done something right to get Flyy Girl on some of the lists I've seen such as "15 Books Every Young Black Woman Should Read". I can't say that this is a novel I'll steer my daughter towards some day. But since it was recently announced that the trilogy (apparently there are two follow ups) will be hitting the big screen soon, word of mouth must be [...]

    A BOOK EVERY TEEN SHOULD READ, ESPECIALLY AFRICAN AMERICAN TEENSI truly enjoy reading this book because it contain many important messages people seem to miss by only paying attention to certain parts of book such as being sexually active still in middle school, dating trouble makers, wearing nice expensive clothes, ect. When actually the author was writing this to make a point the bad choices Tracy was making could cause her to end up like her role model,Mercedes a drug addict. Tracy is simply [...]

    A Young Girl in FlightThis is a coming of age story during the 80's baby! I liked that part, and how he described the gear we use to sport! Just hearing the title and thinking about the song makes me want to go hang out how we did in "my day!" LOL Dang am I that old! Tracy, the main character is as superficial as they come. She enjoys a twist of her newfound freedom since her parents separate and she has gone from hating guys, to loving them! She's all about fashion, and guys, nothing else seems [...]

    I was in my early teens, I believe when a schoolmate recommended this novel to me. Even at that time, I was disturbingly unhappy with the style, composition and overall literary flow of this novel. The main character was unrelatable and even if she were, I couldn't find her likeable or even worthy of empathy. I had a rather difficult time connecting with Tyree's prose and was disappointed with his other projects as well.

  • Bonita

    one can keep tired of reading about perfect shaped girls, money falls in their laps, long hair, pretty eyes, all the men/boys want them. it's not realistic. yes this is just entertainment, but it was boring.

  • Winter Sophia Rose

    Enlightening, Realistic, Page-Turner!!! Excellent Read! I Loved It!

  • Joyanne8f

    I think this book is very interesting. It has so many details. I can relate to it because I am a teen dealing with the decisions and consequences of life. I love this book, and think anyone in their teenage years.

  • Robins

    This book was good. I gave it 4 stars because it was another typical book about a hard headed black girl going through family troubles, having sex, picking the wrong dude and ending up with nothing. Even though Im tired of hearing this same concept the book was good.

  • Bookishrealm

    This was pretty good. Some parts did drag and I feel like Tracy could have learned her lesson at a more gradual pace. I love the inclusion of Afro-centric elements. Especially Tracy's poem. It was beautiful. Interesting to see where the rest of her story goes. Full review to come.

  • Jasean

    This book never disappoints. Victor is everything! I just hate how the series ended though.

  • Keisha

    This book was pretty good. I think there may have been a sequel written.

  • Lee

    This has to be one of the most poorly written books that I have read.

  • Danielle Bigsby

    This was a great book. It was sooo relatable. Reminded me of every young trying to find her identity.

  • Erika

    If this was the first time I read this book and I was a mere 16 years old, I probably would have given it 5 stars. Flyy Girl was my first adventure into reading for pleasure. It was given to me from my cousin and it kept me occupied for a few days in the summer. So I'll always have a small bit of love for this book.It is now maybe 10 or so years later since the first and second and third time I read Flyy Girl and I see it so differently now. I admired Tracy. Maybe from a lack of my own self este [...]


    If you're into promiscuity, boys and drama this book if for you. Tracy, living with her mother and father noticed a change in her home. Her father wanted out but her mother didn't know why. At a young age she had to experience her families split. Her father rented an apartment while her and her mother still lived in his house under his rules. As Tracy got older and there was no father figure around boys got in her path and made her teenage years harder. Still she now has a younger brother from h [...]

    I First read this book back when I was a young woman and I loved it then, And now reading this as an older woman in her forties, I still feel the same, my emotions, my head shaking, my busting up out loud and my understanding what the main character is going through as she experience love, life, and happiness are all still the same. With some heart break thrown in the mix. Now I have to read the sequel to this book to find out how things went after the main character matured into a grown woman. [...]

    i think i read this in 8th grade or maybe it was freshman year of high school. i just recall girls eating this up like it was candy. after having it recommended to be for the fiftieth time i borrowed it from a fellow classmate.i was appalled and found it disturbing. i especially remember thinking about all of the girls that pushed it on me and i wondered if they liked it only for the shock value. i wondered if reading it made them feel cool. and then i wondered why i was friends with themech. pa [...]

    3.5 stars.I've thought about re-readingFlyy Girlover the years, just to see if it still holds up. It does in some respects, because it tells the truth about what many young black women experience in love and relationships, no matter their upbringing; back then we only wanted to be cool and accepted by boys and yearned for excitement. I accept Flyy Girl for what it is (was), but reading it now, I feel like I'm glad to be past this age.

  • Kellsea Paige

    I loved this book! Usually I live for unexpected plots and twists and turns. However, this book kept a steady pace which I enjoyed so much. There was never a time in the book where I wanted to skip pages or where there was so much going on that I got confused. Then the way he presented the characters was excellent. It felt like he pulled these characters from my childhood. Wonderful writing and great evolution of characters! Definitely one of my fav books!

  • Ashely Nicole

    OMG OMG OMG! Omar outdid himself on this book. I read this in 10th grade. I can't believe my mom bought this book for me, but I guess she did for a reason. I wanted to be just like Tracy when I read this. this book was definitely a great page turner. I really enjoyed it. Every young girl should read the 'Flyy Girl' trilogy.

  • Ms. Nikki

    I can remember reading this and seeing some of my "friends" at the time experiencing some of the same scenarios that Omar talked about. This is about teens, fast teens, boys not yet men, the promiscuity that prevailed in the 80's, and growing up. I read this over 15 years ago and still remember. I guess that says something~

  • Latoya

    Enjoy this book. Omar tyree tell us a story of Tracy Ellison whom is the main character in the story. I like the way that the author walks the reader thru Tracy life from when she was young till when she's a woman. A defo good read

    I read this as a teenager it was a good read and fun for teens.

  • Chris

    From the jacket description, this probably wasn't a book I would normally pick up. I'm not typically a fan of soap opera like stuff and most chick lit. But this was on a list I ran across of the top books for African-American teens and so I figured I should give it a shot. I can kinda see how this might be a guilty pleasure read for some, but it just really didn't do it for me. I think it's because I just really didn't like the main character. I can see how the author might have perceived this a [...]

  • Jashala Fears

    Great bookI read it years ago when it first came out.I think I was maybe 13 or soI've read it twice sincei really think Tracy represented many of today's young girlse ones that think they know everything when in reality they're only just getting started with life's rollercoasterI'm glad Raheema was there to show a different kind of teenager. Also, I love the fact that Tracy grows but clearly still has a way to go, she still doesn't have it all figured outis is real lifes definitely worth a readk [...]

  • Sherrell

    This book is about a girl who faces trouble. All because of her love of being in the fast lanes. Which also means living life to the fullest. Never letting anyones advice decide what she does.This girl is named Tracy Ellison.She goes many boyfriends.Her favorite thing to do is have a goal and achieve no matter how hard.I admire her for that quality.Also, for how when ever she was in trouble and she realized it she turned her life around.

    Hmm. What can I say really? This was the first urban fiction I read, and fortunately the last. I tried to get through it, but the character and story was so contrived and pretentious that I was actually angry that something like this was published. I guess every book has its audience, and it's quite clear this one is for self-absorbed, ignorant, low class black girls.
