Item Description...
COVER GIRLS is a compelling novel of real faith that follows four African American women throughout one year as they learn to balance children, estranged husbands, boyfriends, and problems at work with their heartfelt belief in God. Meet Camille, a young woman determined never to be used again-by a man, by her family, or by her boss; Tonya, Camille's boss, who feels she is losing her power and dream to Camille; Mrs. Judson, the office supervisor, who is in charge at work but fears she has lost control of all she holds dear at home; and Ms. Ida, a devout and saintly woman who will have the last word, helping these disparate women find themselves and each other. These are the COVER GIRLS-four women who learn to drop their cover, be themselves, and open up to friends and family without the fear of rejection.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Author of Mama and us  Apr 7, 2007
T.D.Jakes as yet done it again in bringing to life the different challenges and lessons that each individual soul has to experience and then learn from, by becoming a better soul, a better teacher, a better vessel for God. I am baffled each time as I read, listen or experience any of the subjects that this pastor shares with people all over the world. Although a bit bland,for my taste, still: a good message book to read.
 
Bad, bad, bad, bad, badder and worse.  Nov 16, 2006
The Cover Girls by TD Jakes was in our lunch room (kind of like a lending library thing) so I picked it up. A girl who usually has similar reading tastes as mine had read the book so I thought it'd be good but dang, this book SUCKED!

The guy who wrote it is some sort of preacher/bishop and I really did appreciate the message he was trying to get across but it was just a BAD book. The writing was mediocre at best but the worst part was the tedious stretching of the parable. Dude, the message is good (great, in fact) but you don't need 256 pages to share it.

Before anyone gets on my case because the main characters were black (and I'm one of the whitest people around), it's not that. While the cultural stuff was a bit odd (some of the words, phrases, uses, etc.) and caused a small amount of confusion, the message was still there and that's cool.

But the real problem, in my mind, was the predictability of it all. And the dragging out of the plot. We don't need a section from each woman, we really don't. And if we did, those chapters could have been written much better to prevent the repetition of the same stuff over and over and over and over again.

Miz Ida's section was just terribly tedious and boringly predictable.

And a final note: Jakes thought he was being cute by naming the sections as seasons of the year. Spring, Fall, etc. But if you really believe this book takes place over the course of a year, yer nutz. Not even Jakes' tedious monotonous poorly written attempt to string out the parable could make it cover a full year. The whole thing takes place over a few weeks - maybe two months tops. He thought he was being cute by assigning each woman her own season. The younger woman was Spring. The middle aged woman was Fall. Old Miz Ida was typed as Winter but crossed out & penned in as Summer - trying to say she's only as old as she feels.

So yeah, the message is great but Jakes just cannot pull it off. The book was atrocious. Just awful. Terrible. Ick! Ptooey. Don't waste your time or your money.
 
Turn off the lights  Oct 27, 2006
This story was putting me to sleep. Mr. Jakes is a great motivator! No one can take that away from him. But a fiction novelist he is not! This is one boring book! I just simply could not get into this book. I've tried, for the sake of the author, but I just could not. Now I'm wondering if he really wrote it (with his busy schedule and all). Let's just say that maybe--perhaps--just perhaps, a ghost writer could have written this story. If Jakes, however, did in fact write it, he's probably embarrassed about it. This book needs to be revised and re-edited with some upbeat to it. I wish I had gotten it from the library instead of buying it. Another thing. The cover was pretty provocative for a Christian fiction, don't you think?
 
What a great discovery!  Apr 24, 2006
This book is about how 3 womens live's intertwine with each others. It is amazing how god brings us together and teaches us different lessons! Great book to read and discover your inner feelings and actions toward other people.
 
Good almost great  Apr 2, 2006
TD Jakes is as awesome preacher and delivers a poignant story with this novel. While not as gritty as Woman Thou Art Loosed it is still very applicable for those already in the church. While very predictable and stereotypical I recommend this book especially to those who prefer to read more conservative fiction and as a gift for those who know someone like the women in the story but don't know how to tell them they are in need of help. The light and easy story line and good moral content warranted Cover Girls a Bronze rating.
