Cash Money Content: Get it Girls Book Novel
Cash Money Content, the book publishing arm of the iconic record label Cash Money Records will release Get It Girls, from Essence magazine bestselling author Treasure Blue. Get it Girls is the follow up to Treasure Blue’s gripping novel Harlem Girl Lost, an instant urban classic which received rave reviews and was also named the Black Issues Book Review Urban Lit Book of the Year (2006). Originally self-published, Harlem Girl Lost was an underground sensation that went on to sell nearly 65,000 copies worldwide, catching the attention of Essence magazine and Publisher’s Weekly as well as receiving a starred review from Kirkus Reviews.
A former New York City Fire Inspector, with the release of Harlem Girl Lost, Treasure Blue has come to be considered Urban Lit’s hottest newcomer. His novels, which include Harlem Girl Lost, A Street Girl Named Desire, Keyshia and Clyde and Flexin’ and Sexin’, have become some of the most sought after urban reads. His latest, Get it Girls: A Harlem Girl Lost Novel (originally titled “Harlem Girl Lost 2”), is being re- released by Cash Money Content. Get it Girls: A Harlem World Lost Novel doesn’t really pick up where Treasure Blue’s intense urban drama Harlem Girl Lost left off. Instead it explores the alternate reality of what would have happened to the novel’s colorful main characters Jessica, Vonda, Tiny and Lynn had things turned out differently.
In Harlem Girl Lost, the intense characters crafted by Treasure Blue experience the worst that the world can offer as they navigate betrayal, brutality and incarceration in a gritty portrait of urban survival set on the cold streets of Harlem , New York. Get it Girls lives up to its predecessor as Treasure Blue takes his readers back to the hard streets of Harlem where the nightmare began.
Here’s what the critics had to say about Harlem Girl Lost:
“Even in Blue’s world of double-crossing, misogyny, drugs and brutality. . . a fairy tale can come true.”- Publisher’s Weekly
“A book full of gritty realism, violence, drug abuse, and hope; the book is simply off the damn hook!”
-African American Literary Book Club
“Drenched in drama, drugs, vengeance, power, pain, envy, love and hope . . .all the elements needed to satisfy [the] desire for a good read.” -Urban Reviews
