    A Different Story

    Avery Lyons left New York twenty years ago after a family inquisition placed her directly in the firing zone. With no one to protect her from the very people she assumed would have her back or at least one person; she walks away only to return when her mom is in a terrible accident. With no choice but to return to New York and face old hurts and family secret Avery tries her best to settle her mother's affairs. While in New York Avery re-connects with her childhood friend Alicia who helps her through the tough times ahead.
    Avery's cousin Dwight is one of the wealthiest black men in New York with a thriving real estate empire. He wasn't always in the position that he's in today; he was once the back that Avery needed many years ago. However Dwight forgets about family loyalties and remembers his friends and power. As times passes Dwight is stuck in that night many years ago in the same way that Avery is. The secret that binds them and the parents that manipulated their lives is in fact the very thing that frees them.
    Uptown is the story of old hurts, greed, power and family mixed up in the world of real estate. It's the story of a family finding out that being naked is much better than having on a layer of clothing. The characters in Uptown are strong and have a voice that resonates with the reader long after you close the book. As I was reading Uptown I wished the authors had let the characters tell their own story instead of it being narrated. Though I have this wish it didn't take from the story at all, I enjoyed Uptown it was a good adult read.
