Who said the streets don't love nobody? Black is the novel that shatters the myth. Kaia didn't choose the streets. The streets chose her. Tossed from a broken home, Kaia is forced to learn the hard way just how grimy street life can be. Shedding her innocence overnight it seems, Kaia goes from being an often overlooked, stepped upon and crushed little girl, to a woman. She endures all of the drama that is thrown her way, sometimes catching it and sometimes being knocked flat on her ass. To aid in softening the blow is Aaron. Even street fairy tales have a Prince. Experiencing seclusion and imprisonment while locked down in street dreams and the illusion called love, is Aaron a Savior or Satan? With enemies in disguise, Kaia fights for survival and freedom, but to survive the streets could mean suffocating the freedom of her mind. Like a captured black butterfly, Kaia struggles to emerge and triumph, but victory ain't always sweet. As a matter of fact, sometimes it's bitter to the end.

Born and raised in New York City's Fifth Borough of Staten Island, Tracy Brown is a triple threat to the literary industry. This poet, writer and spoken word performer discovered her love of writing in her early youth. After graduating high school, Tracy attended Manhattan's John Jay College of Criminal Justice where she studied law. Embarking on a career as a legal accountant for one of NYC's most prestigious law firms, soon Tracy turned her interest back toward her writings. The result of Tracy's dedication to writing is her debut novel, and jewel in the TCP Crown, ''Black.'' Tracy caught Triple Crown's eye when she submitted the first chapter of her novel for inclusion in the anthology, ''The Game.'' Teasing readers with this appetizer, TCP felt it only fair to give its readers the full course meal, and soon enough Tracy was offered a book deal. In ''Black'' Tracy provides her readers with a front and center view of how street life shapes and molds the life of a young black girl. As the mother of three children, Tracy's concern for the future of inner city youth has been a subject often explored in her work. Tracy Brown continues to reside in Staten Island, where she is at work on her sophomore novel.Review:
