Even the sirens of a fire truck couldn't take her eyes off the page...

Reading The Glamorous Life, by Nikki Turner.

Her favorite book--The Coldest Winter Ever, by Sister Souljah. It was the grittiest book she'd ever read, the first in the Urban genre.

How many has Urban novels has she read? Girl, she told me, I read all of them.

If she were to write her own book? It'd be Urban, a book about the streets, a love story set in San Francisco.
