Don't bring home a white boy : and other notions that keep black women from dating out by Karyn Langhorne Folan( Book )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide
In Don't Bring Home a White Boy, writer Karyn Langhorne Folan debunks the myths about interracial relationships. Drawing on real-life testimonials, she boldly tackles this difficult subject with warmth, humor, and understanding, as she explores stereotypes of black female sexuality and white male perspectives on black female beauty. Folan goes beyond statistics and offers firsthand insights on her own interracial relationship and attempts to tap into a woman's desire to have all that they deserve instead of restricting themselves, simply because they want a "good black man." Frank, authoritative, and universally relevant, her message to women is to look beyond skin color, accept themselves for who they are, and seek a man who truly loves them, regardless of race

Money and designer clothes. Fame and red carpet events. Front row concert tickets and expensive parties. That's the good stuff.. but being the daughter of a music mogul or a famous rapper isn't easy. Step inside the lives of Kayla Jones and Promise Walker. As the daughters of two legends of rap music, trips, cash, designer labels and famous friends are just business as usual for Kayla and Promise. But so are the high expectations of super-successful parents, the drama of having two-faced friends, the not-always welcome glare of constant media attention and the hurt of nasty gossip. Add to that the ugly reality that some people would do anything to take their parents down--and Kayla and Promise face a daily struggle to figure out who to trust when everyone is blinded by their dads' power

Nester's mistake by Karyn Langhorne Folan( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"It's a 'shoot first, ask questions later' world after the apocalypse. After a perilous escape from the wreckage of their Washington, DC suburb in book one, 'Liam's Promise,' the surviving kids reach their destination, a mountain safe house, only to find their troubles have just begun. There are no adults and the kids are still all alone. Fifteen-year-old Nester, whose good grades and smarts had him on the fast-track to success in the world before the bombs, has no skills for his new life: tending animals, maintaining fires and defending their mountain cabin against intruders. Threats bombard them: from the weather, from escaped prisoners from a nearby correctional facility and from their own grief over their losses. Inexperienced with firearms and conflicted about killing people, Nester struggles with whether there's a place for compassion in a world without laws or authority. Then, as nuclear winter sweeps over their mountain home killing crops and animals, a medical emergency threatens one of their number. Nester must make a desperate choice that shatters their little community and irrevocably alters their chances for survival."--Publisher
