Look out...cause here she comes! Stepping to the forefront, award-winning author, Tu-Shonda Whitaker, proudly presents Miz Thing herself, "Vera Wright-Turner!" "Don't hate the playah, hate the game!" is the anthem of this gold diggin' queen. Miz Thing is funny, passionate, and shoots it straight from the soul, as she welcomes you into her life of trails, tribulations, and triumphs of love. After all, when she first greeted the scene, she was a newborn found in a plastic bag, crying in a trash dump, addicted to crack with a note that read: "Please forgive me, my mother's only fifteen." Well, that must've been a joke because, Vera's mother, also known as Rowanda Wright, is a chicken head that Vera wants no part of. That is, until she meets six feet tall and deliciously fine Dr. Taj Bennett, who takes Vera on a journey that is one to be reckoned with; and this is just the beginning! So, sit back, relax, and get yourself a drink or two, 'cause Vera has some Spike Lee-Hollywood-Oprahfied shit for ya ass! You will soon discover that Flip Side of the Game is the story that the literary world has been waiting on!

display_description Funny, passionate, and straight from the soul, Vera Wright-Turner thinks she has it all under control, until she meets and greets herself. Born on the flip side of the hustler's game, she is the child of a fifteen-year-old drug addict who placed her in a trash dump with a note that read: Please forgive me. My mother's only fifteen. Well, that is of little consolation to Vera as she lives her gold-diggin' life full speed ahead. Everything comes to a crashing halt when she realizes that she can run, but she can't hide. Facing up to the Flip Side of the Game is the only way she will survive.
