It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s Urban Fic Month! This year, we go back home to Missouri and read Hold U Down by Keisha Ervin.

Meet Unique and her girls, Zoe, Kiara and Kay Kay, the mildest criminals the STL has to offer. They live by the code that requires them to make money, spend money and never catch feelings. They will spend the entirety of this book doing none of those things. We follow the clique as they get booed up, hang out at strip-mall night clubs and study at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

This book also competes for “Worst Sex Scene Involving a Perishable Food Item.” We had to read about it, so y’all had to hear about it.
