Omar Tyree continues to move "from the underground to the mainstream" (Nelson George). His true-to-life portrayals of urban contemporary life have made him a hit with critics and readers alike, propelling his novels onto the US bestseller lists. His newest novel, JUST SAY NO! is a testament to the Tyree phenomenon. Childhood friends Darin Harmon and John Williams have always been talented, using their gifts to earn scholaships to college; Darin for football and John for music. After John's musical genius is revealed in a homecoming talent show, their lives are changed forever. Transformed from introverted "momma's boy" to "Loverboy" Williams, John decides to share his musical talents with the world, with Darin as his manager. Together the two friends discover the prizes and the pitfalls of fame, as Darin falls victim to his resentment over John' growing popularity and his own cravings for life in the fast lane.
