First boyfriends, first love, first mistakes—and an invitation to the hottest teen society party of the year send three friends into a tailspin. Can they handle the pressure of getting everything they think they want?

Santana Jackson is one of the flyest chicks in her Atlanta ’hood. At least until her golddigger mother snags a pro baller, and they move to the other side of the tracks. Worse, Santana’s boyfriend has made a move, too—on her rival. Now Santana’s obsessed with winning him back in time to shine—until she unexpectedly finds herself falling for a brainy nerd…

Dynasty Young has learned about life the hard way, thanks to her drug-addicted mother and MIA father. Then she meets City, a boy with as much money-making potential as swagger—and who could be her ticket to a better life. But when he stands her up, Dynasty realizes that sometimes true love is right next door…

Patience Blackman is going to hell. Just ask her father, the famous Bishop Blackman. Torn between what’s good for her and what feels good, Patience just wants to have fun—and a hot date for the party—until she stumbles upon a gorgeous churchboy who has her rethinking her bad girl ways…

“An amazing tale that is sure to delight, teach, and intrigue teens everywhere!” —Ni-Ni Simone, author of Upgrade U

Reviewer: BrittanyM

BOYFRIEND SEASON tells the interrelated stories of three teenage girls from Atlanta--Santana, Dynasty and Patience.

Santana spends her days skipping school, boosting designer items from the local mall, and hanging out with her hustler boyfriend Pharoah. But then her mom finds a new man, a wealthy lawyer who wants his stepdaughter to live a better life, and Santana finds herself attracted to a nerdy boy who sees who she is inside. Will she pick the life she had, or the life she could have?

Dynasty's mother was a drug addict and abandoned her to live with her bipolar aunt in the housing projects. Dynasty is desperate for a better life and finds herself attracted to the new boy in the neighborhood--a wealthy guy named City who makes money with some shady business practices. Should Dynasty trust the new guy, or an old friend who has always had her back?

Patience is the sheltered daughter of a wealthy minister named Bishop Blackburn. She catches the eye of a famous rapper named Trill who wants to use her to rehab his reputation, but Patience finds herself drawn to a choir boy who loves God and family. Will she choose the bad boy or the good one?

BOYFRIEND SEASON deals with the themes of wealth and fame, overcoming poverty, and finding self-worth.
