An instant New York Times bestseller! "Grown exposes the underbelly of a tough conversation, providing a searing examination of misogynoir, rape culture, and the vulnerability of young black girls. Groundbreaking, heart-wrenching, and essential reading for all in the #MeToo era." ??Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Belles

Award-winning author Tiffany D. Jackson delivers another riveting, ripped-from-the-headlines mystery that exposes horrific secrets hiding behind the limelight and embraces the power of a young woman's voice.

When legendary R&B artist Korey Fields spots Enchanted Jones at an audition, her dreams of being a famous singer take flight. Until Enchanted wakes up with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night. Who killed Korey Fields?

Before there was a dead body, Enchanted's dreams had turned into a nightmare. Because behind Korey's charm and star power was a controlling dark side. Now he's dead, the police are at the door, and all signs point to Enchanted.

"Never have I read a story that so flawlessly hits the highest high and lowest low notes of Black girlhood in pursuit of the American Dream." ??Nic Stone, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin and Jackpo… (mere)

Good story, fast paced ( )

This book was a really compeling and a super fast pace mystery set in the background of a murdery mystry set in the singing world. This book has massive triggers for abuse and gromming. I really did love the duel time line of this story. I think this story really did craft how this gromming process could occur. I though this was a super fast pace read. I did think the ending was a bit rushed and open ended but i still enoyed it and hope to read more by this author in the future, ( )

This book was intense. It may be a YA book but it wasn't afraid to tackle real and important issues. On the surface it seems like a ripped from the headlines R. Kelly retelling. I think while that's certainly a take-away you can go with I think there is another level that is meant to be explored and exposed. It is about rape culture. It is about a societal blind eye that prevails against women and men in power, especially women of color and men in power. This book will make you angry because it just doesn't seem like any of this should be able to happen but we know it does and that's horrifying and it just makes you angry that it can happen. That it does happen. One voice should be enough, especially when that voice says, "no." ( )

wow. this was really intense, and such an important read. she really (from what i remember of working with girls who were trafficked and in the life) really captures the reality of grooming and what it looks like. as hard as it is to read, she made it more palatable for readers by leaving out a lot of the more extreme violence (sexual and otherwise).

i really like the way she made us start to question enchanted's mental stability (so there may have been more violence, she was just blocking it out; also very typical) - like for a while there we are made to wonder if her friend gab even actually exists at all, which was a turn i really didn't expect. the different reactions that people had were so very realistic, and i'm glad that jackson made them mostly supportive in the end. except the cops, who really don't understand domestic violence. sadly this also felt really realistic.

i wish she hadn't felt the need for the mystery part. did enchanted kill korey? if not, who did? i didn't really care about that and i get that, at the end, that enchanted was saving herself by figuring out the mystery, but for me this just pulled down the book a bit.

still, i think i'm going to be finding everything that tiffany d jackson writes. this is the second of hers i've read and i think i will need to read everything else. she's so talented a writer and her themes are so important. ( )
