"Allen draws you into the story from the very first page." --APOOO Book Club
In New Jersey's infamous Brick City, four gorgeous young women are trying to make their way in life and love. But in a world of smooth-talking players, cunning drug dealers, and deadly rivalries, are brains, beauty--and even friendship--enough?...
Stunning, sweet, and pampered as a princess, Sasha is a hood's treasure. So why did the love of her life suddenly cut her loose? And if she knew the answer, would she be strong enough to stay away?....Flawless, fashionable, smart and strong, Tatum swore she'd never let herself love the wrong man--until she falls for a calm, cool, connected, killer. . ..Originally from L.A., Neli's got a Valley Girl drawl and a deceptively innocent, natural beauty. She loves East Coast dudes--and there's one she's got more than her eye on. He belongs to someone else, but that's just a detail. . ..Thick in all the right places, Kim is ghetto fabulous, she knows it, and she doesn't give it away for free. A leader at nineteen, you don't want to get on her bad side. Over one hot summer, these girlfriends are relying on their bond to get them through--but when secrets and betrayals are exposed, can they survive the truth?
