Street Lit: The Keisha Ervin Excerpts, #2

Yesterday we gave you a sampling of street lit from Keisha Ervin's first novel, Me & My Boyfriend.

Today you get a hit of her second book, Chyna Black. As you can read in this week's cover story, "Lit Up," Ervin hit pay-dirt with this little number about a high-school dropout who gets knocked up, and then caught up in a whole lot o' baby-mama drama.
