Overview

Eighteen-year-old college student Tiara Bynum is as pretty as a princess and just as spoiled. Her castle is the Harlem housing project where she lives with her younger sister Jo-Jo, and her doting father, Reggie. Her fiefdom is the legion of men at her beck and call every time she snaps her perfectly manicured fingers. She has no qualms about flaunting her charms to get what she wants because she’s “got it like that.”
Tiara believes she’s the toast of the world. Her greatest goal is to find a rich, handsome man who will spoil her just as her father does-or maybe even more. Go for the glitter, she urges herself. Who cares if it’s gold? When two suitors arrive on the scene, Tiara prepares to be smitten. But when the one she secretly adores doesn’t like her attitude, Tiara’s trademark confidence frays into embarrassment, shame, and confusion.
Blindly determined to strike out on her own at any cost, Tiara lashes out against those who love her most. Yet the choices she makes, based on the way she’s been raised, threaten to destroy not only Tiara, but her entire family.
