MFOB featured book: Like a Sister
When the body of disgraced reality TV star Desiree Pierce is found on a playground in the Bronx, people are quick to declare it an overdose. But Desiree’s half-sister Lena Scott knows that can’t be the case. Lena has spent the past decade forging her own path far from the spotlight, but some facts about Desiree just couldn’t have changed since their childhood. And Desiree would never travel above 125th Street.
So why is no one listening to her?
In Like a Sister, Lena becomes determined to find justice for her sister, even if it means untangling her family’s darkest secrets—or ending up dead herself.
