1. Prologue by Elizabeth Griffin [Reviews - 19] starstarstarstarhalf-star (5549 words)

     NIARA, is the first book that I have written and self-published.  It is young adult fiction.  NIARA is a coming of age story set in the city of Philadelphia during the 1980's.  It is a part of THE URBAN GIRL SERIES which is available on AMAZON. I hope you enjoy the read.  Thanks.

2. Chapter 1 by Elizabeth Griffin [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (5446 words)

I love writing about inner city teens.  The characters in my books  reflect a time period in the 1980's when life was exciting and new for me.  Rap was new on the scene  of music and Salt-N-Pepa was one of the female rap sensations of that time. 

I wanted to show that era in young adult fiction.  You will read about pay phones, walkmans and a lots of the gadgets from that time   The slang and language used in the book is slightly different from today, but I believe you will be able to follow the story.

I haven't read NIARA in years and I find myself laughing at some of the terms used in the book.  I hope you enjoy NIARA and follow The Urban Girl Series on Amazon.  Thanks.
