About this title:

Synopsis: Mabel Holms, aka Big Mamma is obsessed with power. Her every motivation is to get money and more power. She was determined to never return to the impoverished life she grew up in. When she realized she could use her one asset to control men and get money, they became her weapon, and she waged war. Barbra (Mammy), Samuel and Rubert go from their own lifetime of abuse and fear into a partnership with Big Mamma. Their creation The Hood, under the guise of the nonprofits, "Loving Holms" for girls and "Boys to Men" for boys, designed to help wayward girls and boys, caused a reign of suffering and terror which last four to five generations. This book takes you through the lives and times of The Hood told in stories from Joyce, Mindy and Annie, who were born in The Hood. Their stories take you into the sex trafficking, murder, scandal and abuse that all who lived there went through every day. Highlighted are their personal struggles, friendships and their loves in the midst of all this hatred. Determination and will take over freeing most of them, but leaving a ridge of anger and hurt between them all. Raw, graphic and lyrically strong The debut of "Beauty Secret Blues Uncensored" introduces the reader to the first book in a series of interlocking monologues that journey through all areas of abuse, along with urban dysfunction and despair. It's raw language, graphic content and impacting stories are told through the eyes of children and young adults, who struggle to keep their sanity and find some sense of normalcy, all while seeking to escape the only world they've ever known. The road that these characters travel on to get to their envisioned proverbial "pot of gold" will both shock and capture the reader's heart(s), while deeply touching your emotions and evoking feelings of sorrow, hate, despair and loathing for many of it's characters.
