Grown by Tiffany D Jackson

Summary:
Korey Fields is dead.
When Enchanted Jones wakes with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night, no one—the police and Korey’s fans included—has more questions than she does. All she really knows is that this isn’t how things are supposed to be. Korey was Enchanted’s ticket to stardom.
Before there was a dead body, Enchanted was an aspiring singer, struggling with her tight knit family’s recent move to the suburbs while trying to find her place as the lone Black girl in high school. But then legendary R&B artist Korey Fields spots her at an audition. And suddenly her dream of being a professional singer takes flight.
Enchanted is dazzled by Korey’s luxurious life but soon her dream turns into a nightmare. Behind Korey’s charm and star power hides a dark side, one that wants to control her every move, with rage and consequences. Except now he’s dead and the police are at the door. Who killed Korey Fields?
All signs point to Enchanted.

My Review:

Being a superstar is not all that glamorous.

Enchanted has the voice and the look to become famous one day. During a singing competition, Korey Felids took a special interest in her. Soon after her life turn upside down and must find a way to break free.

Grown was such an very tense read from the beginning to the end. The main character, Enchanted is so young and innocent within the book. She is dragged into this world of drugs, sex and abuse. This book deals with a lot of sensitive topics and being a singing is not as glamorous it seems.

Enchanted don’t know anybody in the singing world. She gets brainwash by Korey Feilds charm and trust him so much. He keeps her isolated from her friends and family. She really has no one to trust nor understand what’s happening. Enchanted slowly starts loosing herself and doing everything Korey says and drink weird stuff each night. When Korey suddenly dies, will be Enchanted be free finally from the abuse?

I read this book in one night. It has so many twists and turns until the very end. I had to read the ending again and again bc I was shock on what happen. This book may have trigger warnings and very disturbing sensitive topics. In the beginning of book there are warnings also. This book was very detailed and can easily get lost in it. So worth a read..
