Two Essence(R) bestselling Urban Books authors have teamed up to bring the Motor City drama in this latest installment of the popular Girls from da Hood Series.
All the Way In by Treasure Hernandez
Born into the struggle, Sonya Mills and Melody "Ham" Tatum are far from living the good life. They're missing meals, have no clean clothes to put on their backs, and are forced to sleep in abandoned houses. There are zero possibilities in sight for a legal come-up for either young woman.
The desperate teens have no choice but to beg, borrow, and steal if they hope to survive on the savage streets of Detroit. In a twist of fate, the pair link up, adapting a bloodthirsty, anything-goes, what's-yours-is-mine attitude that they inflict upon all they come in contact with. Sonya and Melody are made of no sugar, no spice, and definitely nothing nice!
Escaping a Thug's Love by Ms. Michel Moore
The Dexter Linwood Area is one of the most notorious neighborhoods in Detroit. Sable Turner and Mike Mike Sims were both born into that pure madness. When they fall in love, the young couple soon becomes DLA royalty, and they embrace all the chaos that comes along with it. Whenever he rocks, she rolls. If she hustles, he will grind.
Their gangsta lifestyle is picture perfect until Mike Mike starts popping pills and getting high on the regular. Soon bills are not getting paid, vehicles are being repossessed, and shutoff notices are the norm. The last straw is when Sable's jewelry mysteriously comes up missing. Now the hood princess wants out of their toxic relationship. Will Mike Mike let her go?
