Tressa always thought that the best moment in her life was the day she gave birth to her twin boys, Khalil and Hadji, but even better was when she got the news that their abusive father, Lucky, was dead. His death gave the streets freedom and safety, and it gave Tressa an opportunity to start over. Thrilled the bad days were gone, she soon realized that, even though Lucky was dead, she would never be free of him. When the twins discover that Indie, the man who raised them, had a hand in killing their father, nothing can stop them from plotting their revenge. They are about to find out that nothing is what it seems.

What would have made Project Chick 2 better?

Project 2 would have been great if it had actually left off where 1 ended. I'm so confused.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nikki Turner again?

I'm not sure.

What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

I liked every bit of his performance.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Project Chick 2?

I would explain how characters that died in one came back.

Any additional comments?

I'm returning this, I'm so upset.

In this captivating tale, Tressa's voyage will expose listeners to a side of a struggling single mother that has yet to be revealed to them. Nikki Turner, the bestselling author of A Hustler's Wife, once again takes you on a safari through the jungle of the fierce and stormy streets, leaving you on the edge of your seat and begging for an encore.
