The bestselling author of Let That Be the Reason and Imagine This, Vickie
Stringer conceives the most mischievous and manipulative urban heroine of all
-- Red -- in her hardcover debut.
In a scorching tale of love, lies, loss,
and the indomitable spirit of a woman scorned, we meet Red in the midst of her
game -- on the toilet of her boyfriend's apartment, faking a pregnancy. An
eighteen-year-old expert at deception with a provocative femininity, Red
employs her dirty ways to win a closet full of Gucci bags, a deluxe condominium
full of baby accessories, a new car, and a book deal. But when Red's scams
backfire and she winds up truly pregnant by her inmate ex-boyfriend, Bacon, Red
finds herself in more trouble than she's ever known. The drama unravels when
Red's picture-perfect cons fall apart due to the power of -- surprisingly --
Vickie Stringer's book, Let That Be The Reason, (ESSENCE MAGAZINE "BEST SELLER")
has been quoted as the most realistic street novel ever written. Emotionally

quasi-fiction trilogy based on the author's real-life experiences.
Vickie Stringer has recently completed her second novel, Imagine This, and the
self-publishing instructional guide, How to Succeed in the Publishing Game.
Public speaking, motivational seminars and mentoring programs are also a large
part of her busy schedule. "I use my life as an example to warn others of the
dangers of the drug game."
Vickie M. Stringer adroitly intertwines fact and fiction and has written the
most honest, provocative and compelling novel of the "Bad-Girl" genre--Let That
Be the Reason.
