A Street Girl Named Desire

A Street Girl Named Desire

(2007)
A novel by

 
Bestselling author Treasure E. Blue returns with a gritty against-all-odds urban fairy tale set in the same unforgiving neighborhood as that of his breakout debut novel Harlem Girl Lost.

Desire was born on the streets of Harlem - literally. Her mom, a crack-addicted prostitute, delivered her on a bitter winter's night after turning a trick and being brutally beaten by the john. Taken from her mother by the state, Desire grows up unwelcoming foster homes, until a local Good Samaritan takes her in. With Miss Hattie Mae's love and Christian guidance, Desire gains confidence, joins the church choir, and discovers that she's got a set of pipes - which soon attract the attention of hip-hop's biggest exec.

But the road to superstardom is paved with dangers and temptations: drugged-out, violent rappers, untrustworthy pro athletes promising romance, and vicious drugs. Despite her phenomenal success and Miss Hattie Mae's kindness, Desire seems destined for a fall from the top that will slam her back onto the pavement where her mama left her - until an unexpected angel picks her back up. . .
