Synopsis

The reigning queen of hip-hop lit, Nikki Turner, takes on the music biz in this tale of a young woman who risks everything to be a superstar.

Fabiola Mays was born to sing. She has a voice like honey and a body to match, but one heartbreaking setback after another threatens to derail her dreams of a recording deal. To make matters worse, it’s Christmastime, rent is past due, and the cops intend to kick her tight-knit family to the curb–until a small-town gangster comes to the rescue and offers them a place to stay.
Years pass, and Fabiola continues to play gigs and travel around the country hoping for another shot at fame. She’s long forgotten the gangster named Casino who bailed out her family once upon a time. But when Casino is shot, Fabiola feels that she must help the man who helped her family during their lowest point.

As Fabiola climbs the ladder of success, she is pulled between the spotlight and the street, trying to resist industry moguls who find the allure of fresh meat irresistible and the thugs from the shadowy side of the ghetto who threaten to keep her close.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

I have several of Nikki Turner's books and they are a hit OR miss. She has never been my favorite writer whether it be about the hood life or not. She has much growth to she needs to invest in but let me say this- after six plus books - how much more growth do you need? I could not get into this book I read about half way, then returned it. It was not realistic, it glossed over the hard core industry and made the main character out to be a goody-goody who can maintain her self respect in the industry not saying it can't happen, but the way she write it-wasn't realistic. Don't waste your time.
