From Taraji P. Henson, Academy Award nominee, Golden Globe winner, and star of the award-winning film Hidden Figures, comes an inspiring and funny memoir—“a bona fide hit” (Essence)—about family, friends, the hustle required to make it in Hollywood, and the joy of living your own truth. With a sensibility that recalls her beloved screen characters, including Katherine, the NASA mathematician, Yvette, Queenie, Shug, and the iconic Cookie from Empire, Taraji P. Henson writes of her family, the one she was born into and the one she created. She shares stories of her father, a Vietnam vet who was bowed but never broken by life’s challenges, and of her mother who survived violence both at home and on DC’s volatile streets. Here, too, she opens up about her experiences as a single mother, a journey some saw as a burden but which she saw as a gift. Around the Way Girl is also a classic actor’s memoir in which Taraji reflects on the world-class instruction she received at Howard University and how she chipped away, with one small role after another, at Hollywood's resistance to give women, particularly women of color, meaty significant roles. With laugh-out-loud humor and candor, she shares

Following in the successful footsteps of its predecessors, Around the Way Girls 6 features three popular Urban Books authors presenting their versions of the tough, street-smart girls that everyone loves. Yana and Kiki had to grow up much too fast, thanks to their mother's drug habit. They've got each other's backs, but even that might not be enough to protect them from the ruthless drug dealer who's got them under his thumb. Connie is tired of struggling to get by, so when a shady corrections officer introduces her to a sure thing, she jumps at the chance. It doesn't take long, though, for her to recognize that her new hustle is bringing more drama than she bargained for. Quiana wants nothing more than to do the right thing. After bearing witness to her mother's heinous murder at the hands of her drug-addicted boyfriend, she is struggling with the ramifications of losing the only person in the world who truly loved her. Around the Way Girls 6 . . . the tradition continues.

Sara fühlt sich so seltsam wie nie zuvor, nachdem sie mit dem geheimnisvollen König Kimaldor in der Dunkelheit zusammengestoßen ist. Ein König, der in der heutigen Zeit noch von einem Ritterorden beschützt wird? Und was war das für ein gleißend helles Licht? Halluzinationen? Vielleicht ist es doch besser, sich von den beiden Rittern zu einem Arzt bringen zu lassen. Der junge Knappe Marc ist sehr freundlich zu Sara. Doch Heermeister Nimroel lässt ihr das Blut in den Adern gefrieren. Feindselig blickt der blonde Ritter sie mit seinen eisblauen Augen an. Fast so, als würde er sie persönlich hassen. Im Schloss angekommen fühlt sich Sara zu König Kimaldor stark hingezogen, obwohl sie doch eigentlich ihren Mann Eric liebt. Irgendetwas geht hier nicht mit rechten Dingen zu. Ist der mysteriöse König Kimaldor überhaupt ein normaler Mensch? Und welches Geheimnis verbirgt Heermeister Nimroel, der ohne ein Wort in den Wald verschwunden ist? Als Sara dann auch in ihrem Zuhause von unheilvollen Visionen geplagt wird, ist ihr eines völlig klar: Ihr Leben wird nach dieser Zusammenkunft niemals mehr so sein, wie es war ...
