*Book of the Day*

Keeping with the 2021 theme of “Acknowledging Our Veteran Authors”, today’s book is from New York Times bestselling author @ericjeromedickey.

When Jordan Greene moves from the deep south to New York City, he finds more than he ever bargained for. After sharings a ride with a vivacious young white girl, a romance grows between the unlikely pair—much to the chagrin of Jordan’s friends and family. Love on the other side of the color bar forces him to examine his own values and makes him stand up against what everyone expects him to do. In this brightly entertaining and emotionally complex novel, Dickey again demonstrates why he is one of the hottest voices in African-American fiction today.

Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail. It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by chance, it was for murder and rape. Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic.

Set in Chicago in the 1930s, Richard Wright’s powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America.

This edition of Native Son includes an essay by Wright titled, How “Bigger” was Born, along with notes on the text.

Small town Georgia girl Jessie Belle just met her ticket out of town: a trusting pastor starting a prosperous church in South Carolina. Seduced by the riches that come with position and power, Jessie uses her wiles to move her unwitting husband into the forefront of the country’s leading ministry, by any means possible, including lies, sex, betrayal, and blackmail. When the walls come tumbling down, Jessie will pay a price she never imagined, and discover one last chance at redemption she never expected.

Fifteen years after the publication of Push, one year after the Academy Award-winning film adaptation, Sapphire gives voice to Precious’s son, Abdul.

In The Kid bestselling author Sapphire tells the electrifying story of Abdul Jones, the son of Push’s unforgettable heroine, Precious.

A story of body and spirit, rooted in the hungers of flesh and of the soul, The Kid brings us deep into the interior life of Abdul Jones. We meet him at age nine, on the day of his mother’s funeral. Left alone to navigate a world in which love and hate sometimes hideously masquerade, forced to confront unspeakable violence, his history, and the dark corners of his own heart, Abdul claws his way toward adulthood and toward an identity he can stand behind.

In a generational story that moves with the speed of thought from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday; from a troubled Catholic orphanage to downtown artist’s lofts, The Kid tells of a twenty- first-century young man’s fight to find a way toward the future. A testament to the ferocity of the human spirit and the deep nourishing power of love and of art, The Kid chronicles a young man about to take flight. In the intimate, terrifying, and deeply alive story of Abdul’s journey, we are witness to an artist’s birth by fire.

*Book Review*

Custom Made Straight Jacket by Johnna B

This riveting biography will tear at your heartstring, as you read numerous counts of abuse…mental, physical and sexual. To see a girl so young experience so much, then blossom into the beautiful young woman known as Johnna B, will inspire some young woman to PUSH THRU THE PAIN.

I must be honest and admit that I had to put the book down a few times, because the content was too heavy. I found myself apologizing for things unknown and wanting to protect this precious flower.

I highly recommend this 💎💎💎💎💎 book to any woman who has experienced a traumatic loss of a loved one and/or been a survivor of abuse.

I’m so proud of you @johnnabsheweites.

Overwhelmed by the difficulties of single fatherhood and seeking comfort and help for himself in that stressful journey, Nick dates numerous women who will change his life forever.

To kick off the New Year, today’s book is a very personal memoir by @johnnabwrites.

You are more than the innocence that was taken from you.More than the blood stains nestled between the fibers of your sheets,or the smell of sweat that won’t wash off your skin.Your silenced voice is stronger than the loud grunts, echoing in your ears.Your life is more than the nightmares you see with your open eye, or shadows that haunt you at night. One day, you will be more than the dreams you have closed your eyes to, or laughter that has been stolen, cursing you with eternal tears. And your life won’t always be the trauma that has been your story……

In part 3 of the dramatic Never Again, No More Series, Trinity, LaMeka, Lucinda, and Charice are back with brand new drama. Although they seem to have escaped their pasts, they find out saying never again, no more is easier said than done.

Trinity has moved on with her first love, Terrence, and has seemingly left all her troubles behind. However, when you have a past named Pooch, it can and will come back with a vengeance.

After LaMeka barely escaped the death grip Tony had on her, her life has truly come full circle. However, she fears her sordid past is not distant enough to fully embrace her new lease on life–and then again, neither is Tony.

Weathering storms is one battle that Lucinda is used to, but when she falls in love with Aldris, those stormy days are a thing of her past. That is until Aldris’s past delivers them a shocking surprise. She’ll find out weathering storm isn’t the problem; it’s surviving it.

Charice and Ryan have moved on…together. It is a marriage of pure love and pure bliss, until Lincoln shows up, determined to prove that it is a marriage of pure lies.

Slowly but surely, these ladies’ past trials begin to stir up trouble in their current situations. The karma is brewing, and new hot tea is prepared to be served by way of former lovers, love children, and deeply rooted secrets. What will happen when the women and men are forced to face the drama they’ve stirred?
