FROM THE "NEW YORK TIMES"
BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF "FLYY GIRL"
AND "FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY"


To some she's intelligent and beautiful.
To others she's proud and dangerous.


At the historically black college of Dillard University in the lush mystical city of New Orleans, the beautiful and serious Leslie Beaudet is struggling with a dark secret of power in a world that is pulling her in many different directions.

In the eyes of her Haitian immigrant father, Leslie is a queen who deserves more than the broken dreams and carnage of poverty. To her Black Indian mother, she is a source of pride and strength, a reason for carrying on. To her younger sister, already the mother of two and a high school dropout, Leslie is the only person who cares enough to share her woes. To her brother, she is the victim he failed to protect. To her college peers and teachers, Leslie is a determined, resourceful student, most likely to succeed, yet always impenetrably private.

When a series of murders befall her New Orleans community, they increasingly point in Leslie's direction. Slowly, her friends and relatives realize they've never really known Leslie — a complicated young woman terrified of failure, struggling with painful family secrets, praying for security that has eluded everyone around her, and craving the power to change her fate, a power that was hidden from her until now...when it's too late to stop her.

Synopsis:

The "New York Times" bestselling author returns with a gripping page-turner about a young college student whose path down the street of life takes a shocking turn. Leslie Beaudet is many things to her family, teachers, and friends, but when a string of New Orleans murders begin to point in her direction, it becomes clear no one has understood Leslie's personal struggles.

Synopsis:

The New York Times bestselling novel about a beautiful young woman with a dangerous secret

At the historically black Dillard University in the lush city of New Orleans, Leslie Beaudet struggles with a dark secret of power in a world that is pulling her in many different directions. Her friends and family see her in many ways — from a father's deserving princess to a mother's source of pride and strength, from a caring listener to a motivated student — but does anyone know the true Leslie?

When a series of murders befall her New Orleans community and increasingly points in Leslie's direction, her friends and relatives realize they've never really known her at all. Slowly, this complicated young woman emerges. She is terrified of failure, struggling with family secrets, praying for elusive security, and craving the power to change her fate. Her power was hidden from her until now...and it might be too late to stop her.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVEEEE this book. This is the book that made me fall in love with Omar Tyree. The story is great, the plot is really interesting, and the author really knows how to draw the reader into the story as if they were apart of it themselves. One of the reasons why I loved this book so much is because the main character reminded me of myself! This book really addresses some of the problems found in many regular communities of today and really allows the reader to think! And of course... there's lots of drama! Love it!
