"Abiola Abrams is best known as the host of BET's The Best Shorts.
Her first novel, Dare, is a Faustian tale set in the world of hip hop. Abrams has a keen ear for dialog, and though almost
outrageous at times, her characters are believable and often fascinating. Dare may end up in several nooks of your bookstore,
filed under "chick lit," "African American literature," or even in the burgeoning "street lit"
genre. Don't be fooled by the labels, this is a promising and enjoyable debut." -David Gutowski, Large Hearted Boy
