Description

Tip Harris, better known as Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling hip-hop artist and actor T.I., is at the top of his game. Now he displays yet another side of his remarkable talents with Power & Beauty, a love story of life on the streets. Set in the dangerous shadows of Atlanta, Georgia, Power & Beauty is a dark, gritty story of sex, violence, hustling, and redemption centered around Paul "Power" Clay and Tanya "Beauty" Long-two kids facing long odds and lethal temptations, yet whose miraculous, unbreakable bond ultimately becomes their salvation. A love story, a crime story, a survival story, Power & Beauty bristles with an electrifying authenticity born of Tip "T.I." Harris's hard life on the streets. This is exhilarating, brutally honest, page-turning urban African-American fiction at its very best.

Back cover copy

One of hip-hop's most accomplished and respected artists, T.I. now makes a bold leap into the world of fiction with the epic love story of Power and Beauty.

Adrift after the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul "Power" Clay turns to Slim, a local businessman, for guidance. Slim always has the best of everything, and if Power learns his ways, perhaps he'll someday be worthy of Tanya "Beauty" Long.

Eleven years old when her own mother died and Charlotte Clay took her in, Beauty has always known that the only person she can rely on is herself. Now Charlotte is gone--and with Power being sucked deeper and deeper into a world of drugs, money, and violence, she turns her back on Atlanta . . . and on her growing love for Power Clay.

Making the difficult transition from boy to man, Power begins to question the wisdom and the motives of those who have taught him what he knows--while Beauty takes the New York fashion world by storm. But she cannot forget what--and who--she left behind. And when Power really needs her, Beauty will risk everything to save the man she loves.
