"This stellar debut series masterfully blends together elements of romance, suspense, savagery and now and again comedy...A page-turner of the highest order." - Kirkus Reviews
A dramatic urban love tale between two teenagers, Nard and Empress. Abandoned by his parents, Nard dreams of having a better life. He attends an alternative school and works at a fast food restaurant, but his life as a gangbanger interrupts the plans he has with college-bound Empress. She is very attractive and ambitious. Coming from a single parent household she works two part-time jobs and has a hustle of selling essays to help her family. In addition, she likes writing songs and singing. Empress is totally focused on her talent and money. Her only weakness is Nard. Will his gangsta past come back and haunt the new life he has started with Empress? Will the love and loyalty Nard has for his woman and gang be his final destruction?
This novel is written in female (Empress) and male (Nard) perspectives. Experience the journey Empress and Nard endure in this three-part series.
The debut novel from Pressure and Empress, Ambition Beyond the Streets: Love and Loyalty has received rave reviews in the urban and young adult teen genres. It is a new addition to the great urban street novel of Ashley & JaQuavis, Jade Jones, Carl Webber and K'wan.
The story of Ambition Beyond the Streets: Love and Loyalty is equally necessary and important as book like The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Dear Martin by Nic Stone, The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah, Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson, and Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds just to name a few.
