Meet Hadjii.
He's got a loving family, a taste for making trouble, and a wicked sense of humor. His first book, " Don't Let My Mama Read This," is a rarity--an upbeat memoir about a blessedly normal childhood written by a natural-born storyteller. In it, he offers a warm, witty look at the pleasures and pitfalls of growing up in a close-knit Southern family, from a young man who's just like you, only funnier.

Review quote

"We were reading it aloud during a car trip and were laughing so hard we had to pull off the road for safety. Honest." --Roger Ebert

"I wouldn't let my mom read it either, but I'd recommend it to anyone else. Hadjii has made a literary debut as fresh and funny as his first film. One of the original voices of his generation." --Reginald Hudlin, President of Entertainment, BET
