28 11 2007

There is a new line of urban fiction out aimed at African American teens published by Kimani Tru. These books feature new and best-selling authors and the stories focus on everything from love to school, family, life and of course… DRAMA!

One of the latest titles we just got in is The Edification of Sonya Crane by J.D. Guilford:

Sonya CraneWhen Sonya Crane transferred to predominantly black Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School (PLD) in Atlanta, she hadn’t planned on passing as biracial. But being one of only a few white students in the school, she finds that hiding her identity makes it easier for her to fit in and gives her the kind of recognition and clique of friends she never had before. That is, until someone threatens to reveal her secret.

For Tandy Herman, the most popular girl at PLD, fitting in was never a problem. She hides her good grades, rock-music tastes and upper middle-class black status by maintaining a ghetto girl façade. But when Sonya finds out, she threatens to reveal Tandy’s secret even though it may expose her own. (Teenreads.com)

So check out this and other titles in the Kimani Tru line!
