Book synopsis:

Korey Fields is dead.

When Enchanted Jones wakes with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night, no one—the police and Korey’s fans included—has more questions than she does. All she really knows is that this isn’t how things are supposed to be. Korey was Enchanted’s ticket to stardom.

Before there was a dead body, Enchanted was an aspiring singer, struggling with her tight knit family’s recent move to the suburbs while trying to find her place as the lone Black girl in high school. But then legendary R&B artist Korey Fields spots her at an audition. And suddenly her dream of being a professional singer takes flight.

Enchanted is dazzled by Korey’s luxurious life but soon her dream turns into a nightmare. Behind Korey’s charm and star power hides a dark side, one that wants to control her every move, with rage and consequences. Except now he’s dead and the police are at the door. Who killed Korey Fields?

All signs point to Enchanted.

My review:
Enchanted Jones is struggling to fit into her new subburn high school as one of its few black students. She dreams of becoming an aspiring singer. Everything changes when she meets the renowned R&B singer Korey Fields and, he is 28 years old and Enchanted is only 17, He takes an interest in helping Enchanted achieve her dreams. Enchanted sees this opportunity as a chance to help her family financially. We are immediately placed into mystery from chapter one, in which Enchanted wakes up at the murder scene of the famous singer Korey fields with no memory of the past night’s events and Enchanted became the main suspect in his murder.

Absolutely amazing, gut wrenching, and terrifying at the same time. This book was so heavy and emotional, I think I will remember this story for a long time. The story is hard to put down, This book is so important and so heartbreaking. I feel like it could just be a really big warning to so many young girls about things like this, It has a strong message about how it’s not the victims fault It’s the older person they knew better. A heavy hitter, so sad but so important. Tiffany D. Jackson is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine, and I’m excited to read more of her books.

Intended audience: YA

Favorite Quotes:

“What a woman wears or doesn’t wear doesn’t give anyone the right to touch them. Well, you know he’s had a rough childhood. Abandoned by his mom, didn’t know his father, raised by his grandma who passed. We’ve all BEEN through a lot but that don’t give you no excuse to abuse girls.”

“I’m so sorry, Daddy.”
None of this is your fault. Not one drop of it. No child should ever take the blame for a man’s actions.”

Thank you so much for reading. If you read Grown tell me what you think about it, I’d love to know.

Happy reading ♥️.
