Section 8 (by K'wan)
iOS Universal Books
Blackstone Audio presents, "Section 8", a hip-hop novel by K'wan (unabridged) which was produced by Buck 50 Productions and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Taught by her drug-addict mother to get hers by any means necessary, Tionna’s heart is cold, but she holds a warm place in it for Duhan, the father of her two sons, her on-again-off-again boyfriend since they were teenagers, her knight in shining armor. But with Duhan behind bars and everything she loves seized, she finds herself starting over in the same neighborhood that she swore she’d never return to. With her best friends, Gucci, Boots, and Tracy, she finds herself rediscovering her old life and suddenly begins to wonder if she’s really cut out to be a prisoner’s wife.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by actress Napiera Groves. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“The big draw here is the electric prose, which is imbued with profane, comic lyricism." —Publishers Weekly on Hood Rat
