Life on the streets take on a whole new meaning in this urban anthology of “hood” tales compiled by New York Times bestselling author Wahida Clark.

“Black Is Blue” by Victor L. Martin delves into the life of a corporate woman who falls in love with a thug and finds out just how easy it is to stray from the straight and narrow.

Eighteen and hungry, Wiz’s only addiction to drugs is the money it makes. But Crystal changes all of that and shows him just how powerful a woman can be, in “The P is Free” by LaShonda Sidberry-Teague.

Bobo, a member of the infamous Eight-Trey street gang, learns that gang life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be as “street wars” take on a whole new meaning in “The Last Laugh” by Bonta.

Shawn “Jihad” Trump tells a story of loyalty, love and honor as The Point Blank Mob is brought to its knees, leaving the crew fighting for their lives and freedom in “All for Nothing.”

And Wahida Clark introduces Nina, a woman tired of being disrespected by men, who takes revenge to the ultimate level in “Makin’ Endz Meet.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “There are numbers all over Grand Central’s first street-lit anthology. In the five ‘hood’ stories gathered by bestselling author Clark (Payback with Ya Life), kilos are cut into grams, the Eight-Trey crew hangs on 83rd Street flashing their nine millimeters, and a scam is played to get $183,000. Irony and plot twists also mark these stories…These hard-hitting tales set in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Newark, NJ, Raleigh, NC, and Trenton, NJ, definitely measure up. Verdict: Victor L. Martin, LaShonda Teague, Bonta, and Shawn ‘Jihad’ Trump are writers to watch, but Clark pulls out all stops in ‘Makin’ Endz Meet,’ introducing Nina, a sassy street girl…You go, girl.”
