Secret Society by Miasha
Book DescriptionThis is a stellar debut about a 19-year-old philly girl with an unbelievable secret penned by a rising star in the urban lit genre. It's 2001, and Celess and Tina are at the top of their game. Both attract attention from men wherever they go - Tina has a voluptuous body and dark features, Celess is slender, light-skinned and just as beautiful. They frequent all the clubs and every big party in the area, revelling in compliments and taking their pick from among the finest, wealthiest men. Celess has no job and no need to worry about one, not with boyfriends like O and Tariq lining up to buy her designer clothes, jewellery and even a house. But Tina and Celess' fast-paced life is about to catch up with them. The two share a devastating secret, and when it's revealed, Celess will need every ounce of her street smarts to survive. This unforgettable new novel has all the ingredients of a smash-hit urban drama - drugs, guns, sex and a jaw-dropping plot twist that will leave readers truly shocked.

US Kirkus Review » Two young African-American ladies of pleasure turn the tables on unsuspecting boyfriends in this glib debut with a truly astonishing twist. Five months after a dramatic shootout that has left her disfigured and emotionally raw, Celess recalls the spectacular year of 2001, when she came out as a wildly successful hustler on the streets of Philly. Impatient with school and eager to make money on their own, Celess and her high-school pal Tina learn how to "use what you got to get what you want"-namely, their youthful good looks to snag "the biggest ballers out there." On the party circuit, Celess soon attracts three regular clients who pay her increasing luxuries in exchange for sex: O, a handsome (and married) bisexual who's running illegal drugs; James, a skinny basketball star with whom sex is the best; and Tariq, a realtor from New Jersey, who buys Celess a condo of her own. Very early on, however, we learn that Celess (named after the child of her first lover) and Tina are really men who pass for women. A good deal of the narrative is devoted to how Celess manages to pull this off-dressing in outrageously expensive, designer outfits, taping herself firmly up, ingesting hormones and vitamins, making sure her clients' hands don't roam while offering herself anally, etc. (No one here uses condoms, by the way.) Some of the men actually don't mind when, inevitably, they learn her true sex, but Tina is beaten up and eventually murdered by angry, horrified suckers. Touchingly, Celess tells her sad story in hindsight, after the harm is done and there is a real chance for her to start a new and better life. Thin and glitzy, but bizarrely affecting in its way.
