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 Jackpot

"Gripping in both its content and format... Jackson's writing some of the best thrillers for teens these days." - Booklist (starred review) "Expertly juxtaposing the glamour of Enchanted's potential fame against the harshness of her private moments with Korey, Jackson builds the story gradually and painfully to an astonishing, chilling climax." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Compelling; Jackson excels in writing books steeped in social commentary." - Kirkus Reviews "In another ripped-from-the-headlines novel, Jackson takes readers through a heart-pounding thriller exploring physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, misogynoir, and rape culture... this novel is sure to initiate important conversations while delivering an engrossing story." - Horn Book Magazine "Tiffany D. Jackson has penned a riveting, powerful love story to Black girlhood and a haunting reminder of the ways in which their innocence is often stolen. Remarkable, suspenseful, and gut-wrenching, Grown is a masterfully told story that stays with you long after you put it down." - Angie Thomas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hate U Give and On the Come Up "With a gripping plot and punch-to-the-heart stakes, Tiffany D. Jackson's Grown exposes the underbelly of a tough conversation-the seductive abuse of older men who prey on teen girls-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 "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. Tiffany D. Jackson has done it again." - Nic Stone, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin and Jackpot "This heart-pounding, powerful story about a young girl trapped in a predator's web holds up a devastating mirror to our society's refusal to care about all victims. A call-out and condemnation of the celebrity-besotted culture that allows evil people to destroy lives." - Laurie Halse Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Shout "Grown is equal parts riveting and alarming. It asks hard questions about power, innocence, and who we, as a society, see as worth saving. A captivating and cautionary page-turner." - Ashley Woodfolk, author of When You Were Everything "Jackson draws on the R. Kelly case to effectively depict the tightening noose of an abusive relationship, enhanced here by Korey's wealth and fame...A grim tale that shows how thin a glossy exterior can be." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Praise for Let Me Hear a Rhyme: * "Exceptional storytelling, well-crafted, true-to-life dialogue, and the richly drawn Brooklyn landscape will draw readers into this fast-paced blend of mystery, budding romance, and social commentary...Thoroughly engrossing and as infectious as Steph's lyrics." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) * "Jackson repeatedly proves that she is a titan among her peers, and her latest novel is no exception... Jackson weaves the three points of view together seamlessly, creating richly drawn and authentically real teen characters." - ALA Booklist (starred review) * "Deftly chronicles the timely story of bold young talent gone too soon... Jackson scores a bull's-eye with her passionate homage to black city life in the late '90s, yet it's her earnest takes on creativity, love, and loss that are timeless." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) * "This YA novel harmonizes music and prose to create a certified literary banger." - Shelf Awareness (starred review) * "Readers will feel connected to these teens' love of hip-hop, their loyalty to each other and their love for their community... offers moving portraits of young
