Pretty explicit stories featuring strong heroines. First story, Dying to Be A Star, follows a naive preacher's daughter's struggles to rise up in Atlanta's R&B industry, she gets to "sin" a lot and we get to read all about it before the inevitable conclusion. Second story, Money, Stilettos and Disrespect, was more violent than expected, it's about three sisters dealing with the violent death of their mother, a sobering story about the price of revenge.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345504305, Paperback)

The heralded Queen of Hip-Hop Lit presents an addictive collection of celebrated urban authors with their fingers on the pulse of the streets.
 
Street lit’s finest female voices—Keisha Starr, Tysha, LaKesa Cox, and Monique S. Hall—deliver searing stories about women who make hard sacrifices to stay on top of their hustle and seize the power, money, and fame they can’t live without. Enterprising and fearless, these players are more than equipped to handle whatever the street throws at them. That’s because they are hellbent on survival—by any means necessary. 

Once again, Nikki Turner shares ultra-realistic page-turners that will keep fans coming back for more.
