Around the Way Girls: 20th Anniversary Edition (Paperback)
Available from our distributor; usually Ships in 1-5 Days
There’s a saying that if you come from my part of town, you're from around the way. Around the Way Girls is a fast-paced look at the lives of some street-smart women who might think they know it all but are about to get the lessons of their lives.
La Jill Hunt brings us “Southern Comfort,” the tale of a Southern girl who has to learn to survive on the streets of New York after a tragedy forces her family to leave Georgia and relocate to Brooklyn.
Angel Hunter spices things up with “Busted and Disgusted,” bringing us into the world of Cream, who is dealing with an unfaithful man and trying to build a better future that doesn’t include the strip club where she’s worked for years.
In “Played,” Dwayne Joseph introduces us to Angel, a smart girl with a great career who suddenly finds herself in a dangerous situation when she meets a handsome drug dealer she can’t resist.
Twenty years ago, Urban Books debuted the Around the Way Girls series with popular urban authors bringing tales of savvy, street-smart women. Revisit this classic with the twenty-year anniversary edition of the original.
