Summary and Excerpt: ANOTHER 4.0



Happy Thursday, all!


I'm continuing the celebration of my forthcoming debut novel, ANOTHER 4.0, with a full summary and excerpt.


Check 'em out!





SUMMARY:

Daria Nelson’s life seems perfect. She’s the apple of her father’s eye, the love of Maurice’s life, and a straight-A sophomore at Howard University.

But all is not as it seems.

Daria is angry with her father...because her father is angry with her. Apparently Adrian Nelson still doesn’t like Maurice after all this time, an attitude which makes no sense to his daughter. Maurice is the handsome owner of a successful West Philly barbershop and the kind of guy any girl would be lucky to have. So what’s not to like?

Well, no, Maurice hasn’t exactly supported Daria’s decision to matriculate some 150 miles away. He expected her stay local and attend the University of Pennsylvania like she promised and hasn’t quite forgiven the drastic change in venue. But Daria understands his frustration because college hasn’t been everything she expected either. Though confident in her choice of English as a major, she has no idea what she wants to do with her life and feels constant pressure to figure it out. Best friends Bernie and Cherrie sympathize with her struggles, but even they don’t fully understand some of Daria’s decisions. To say nothing of the internal pressure Daria feels to maintain the excellence expected of a student at the premiere HBCU in the world.

And with all these issues jockeying for her attention, all Daria wants is peace and another 4.0.
