Overview

Lerrez Crawford was born in complete squalor to two drug-addicted parents in the in inner-city housing projects of Camden, NJ. Life dealt her a bad hand from the very beginning and her only escape from reality was being able to spend time with a sister, Kia, that her father had with another drug addict, and her elementary school teacher, Ms Corp. Dark-skinned, thick and undeniably beautiful, Lerrez's life would be anything but sweet as she struggles to escape the grips of the cold streets was met with a domino effect of tragedy. Lerrez had to deal with the violence and crime that was right outside her front door. With no guidance or family structure prostitution became not just a way to eat but survival for poor little Lerrez. Before she could reach 18-years-old, she gets shuffled off to a foster home, thrust onto the streets, housed in juvenile detention and taken in by her long-lost grandmother. During this whole ordeal, the streets became her survival kit and so with nothing to lose Lerrez became the ultimate stick-up girl. Robbing, gun play and setting up rival drug dealers was a fast come up for the misguided teenager. She experienced sexual and drug abuse, murders and misadventures that are not too uncommon for people surviving in inner-cities across the nation. A chance meeting with a big-time producer from L.A. proves to be the ticket to stability. Just when she finds solace with the love of her life, all of the dirt she did in Camden threatens to snatch away her fairytale ending.

    Hush

    I'm a survivor
    I'm not gonna give up,
    I'm not gon' stop,
    I'm gonna work harder,
    I'm a survivor,
    I'm gonna make it,
    I will survive,
    Keep on survivin'...

    Lerrez is a survivor. Born and raised in the Centerville section of Camden , New Jersey , to drug addicted parents, Lerrez's young eyes saw and experienced things no child should be subjected to. Her upbringing and the surrounding environment would shape, mold and form her young mind and heavily influence her choices in life - some good, some bad, some very bad.

    Many years and miles away, Lerrez has finally gotten it together and her life is on track, a positive track. But the past soon threatens all that she has worked for and her happiness. How far will Lerrez go to keep HER LITTLE SECRET?

    T. Freeman Jr.'s tale offers solid, drama-filled entertainment. His style was very easy to follow. His characters were flawed yet personable. HER LITTLE SECRET was well-written, realistic, properly paced and held my attention to the very end. It was unpredictable and exciting.

    With a fresh new voice that echoes the streets, T. Freeman Jr. easily captures readers with his raw and gritty tale of secrets untold. He is definitely an author to watch. The ending leaves questions of a continuation. I have been anti-sequel as of late, but my hope is that there will be one in this case.
