A fresh voice in urban fiction spins a classic romance into a modern-day love story about sisterhood, faith, and overcoming obstacles.
This humorous tale of love and triumph ties two unlikely suitors together in a merry mix of plotting and gossip. On one side is R&B superstar, Jamaica, and on the other is the passionate, but impoverished Tameer. When the two are brought together in what is meant to be a temporary relationship -- arranged by Jamaica's best friend and personal assistant LaChina -- both are surprised when true feelings burst onto the scene and disrupt everyone's plans.
With Tameer's drunken father, Jamaica's socialite mother, and a band of super-ghetto, meddling friends all blended together, Two Thin Dimes becomes a hilarious, topsy-turvy fight for love in a world gone mad.
Going beyond the simple rich girl, poor boy tale, Caleb Alexander brings his popular style to a whole new level and draws his growing audience along with him as the story takes on social class, unexpected romance, loyalty to friends, and -- most importantly -- the cost of true love.
