Natural Born Hustler: A Novel

Desember Day is beautiful, confident, and smart. She has more game in the streets than a basketball player does on the court, and her boyfriend, Fame, loves every single inch of her. But unlike her mother, who has been in one bad relationship after another, Desember is not going to wait on a knight in shining armor to save her, and even her love for Fame can’t stand in the way of Desember selling anything and everything - legal or illegal - that can turn a profit, so that she never has to depend on a man.

Publisher's Summary

The reigning Queen of Hip-Hop Lit, Nikki Turner returns with a fresh and fierce tale sure to satisfy longtime fans and create new ones.

Desember Day is beautiful, confident, and smart. She has more game in the streets than a basketball player does on the court, and her boyfriend, Fame, loves every single inch of her. But unlike her mother, who has been in one bad relationship after another, Desember is not going to wait on a knight in shining armor to save her, and even her love for Fame can’t stand in the way of Desember selling anything and everything - legal or illegal - that can turn a profit, so that she never has to depend on a man. The only thing Desember feels she’s lacking is a father to call her own. And her mother refuses to tell Desember who he is.

When Fame finds himself at the wrong end of a gun, fighting for his life, Desember wants nothing more than to stand by her man, but Fame warns her from his hospital bed that she isn’t safe. Desember wonders if she was the real target. Her mother, concerned for Desember’s safety, arranges for her daughter to travel to Richmond, Virginia, to live with Desember’s father and his wife. And when her father’s identity is finally revealed, Desember learns that she is a Natural Born Hustler.

But are her troubles really over? Or is the worst yet to come?

“Few writers working in the field today bring the drama [like] Nikki Turner.... [She’s] a master at weaving juicy, ‘hood-rich sagas of revenge, regret, and redemption.” (Vibe.com)

    I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.

    Story
    "Too Short"
    What made the experience of listening to Natural Born Hustler the most enjoyable?

    Good story line but it ended abruptly.... i hope there is a discount for members who purchased this version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Famous. He is young but not hot headed.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think the story would have been more engrossing if there were sound effects.


    If you could take any character from Natural Born Hustler out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Not my choice in friends but interesting to read about
