Book

First Edition.

"Tracy Brown's Single Black Female is a taut, edgy, deftly spun novel about four friends grappling with the dramatic twists and turns of life, love and what it means to "make it in America." Ivy Donovan is a successful stylist, entrepreneur, and single mom who has been loyal to her sons' father, Michael, who's serving a lengthy prison sentence. But life has gotten lonely over the years, and Ivy wants more for herself. Michael, however, isn't about to lose his family. Coco Norris is successful, single, childless, and struggling with her unreciprocated allegiance to emotionally unavailable men. When she finds a man who seems like he can give her everything she has ever wanted, Coco soon discovers that she has taken on more than she can possibly handle. Deja Maddox is a real estate agent who is married to a police sergeant with the NYPD. They have assimilated, looking down on anything that doesn't fit their buttoned up, polished life. But Deja isn't as satisfied as she would like everyone to believe. When Deja's past returns with a vengeance, she's forced to face herself and her "perfect" life begins to crumble. Things come to a head when Ivy's youngest son, Kingston, is caught up in a polarizing encounter with the NYPD. Everyone is forced to figure out where they stand, including the police sergeant who suddenly has to decide if his "blue life" matters more to him than his black life and the black lives of those he loves"--
