"Allen draws you into the story from the very first page." —APOOO Book Club 

In New Jersey's infamous Brick City, four gorgeous young women are trying to make their way in life and love. But in a world of smooth-talking players, cunning drug dealers, and deadly rivalries, are brains, beauty—and even friendship—enough?...

Stunning, sweet, and pampered as a princess, Sasha is a hood's treasure. So why did the love of her life suddenly cut her loose? And if she knew the answer, would she be strong enough to stay away?....Flawless, fashionable, smart and strong, Tatum swore she'd never let herself love the wrong man—until she falls for a calm, cool, connected, killer....Originally from L.A., Neli's got a Valley Girl drawl and a deceptively innocent, natural beauty. She loves East Coast dudes—and there's one she's got more than her eye on. He belongs to someone else, but that's just a detail.... Thick in all the right places, Kim is ghetto fabulous, she knows it, and she doesn't give it away for free. A leader at nineteen, you don't want to get on her bad side. Over one hot summer, these girlfriends are relying on their bond to get them through—but when secrets and betrayals are exposed, can they survive the truth?

"Thicker Than Water is an urban chick flick waiting to happen. Takerra paints a gritty,  true-to-life portrayal of friendship and betrayal."— Dutch (Kwame Teague, author of the Dutch Trilogy)

Meet the Author

Takerra Allen is the author of the Thicker than Water series, Restricted, (There's Power in the) V, and of the 2010 African American Literary Award nominated hit novel, Heaven's Hell. In addition to being an author, she is the proud daughter of former Black Panther William Garland and half-sister to the late, renowned Tupac Shakur. She has been featured in publications such as XXL Magazine and Don Diva Magazine, featured twice in the Top 10 Urban Books Listing. Although Takerra has been approached for ghostwriting offers as well as publishing offers from some of the top names in urban fiction, she has opted to remain focused on the goal of building her own publishing house with her business partner, Sandra Mobley. Takerra and Sandra have launched Angelic Script Publishing to give new edgy writers a chance to demonstrate their talent and to give readers and lovers of Contemporary Fiction, new and exciting books to fall in love with. Writing continues to be Takerra's first love however, and her work has been appraised by many veteran African-American writers. She was born in Jersey City, NJ and resides in Somerset, NJ. Look forward to more works and projects from Takerra!

    WOW..........

    I had never heard of this author before but I'm glad I stumbled across her TTW series!!! To find out that she is the sister of my all time favorite rapper (TUPAC) was the icing on the cake! These characters were incredible & I felt as though I was living this story with them!!! I want to read some more novels by you Ms. Allen =)
