Best African American YA Fictional Romance


Capable of Anything Part One

Close friends Candice, Samar, Sha, and Sabrina have to face the reality that tomorrow isn’t promised for any of them. This is primarily due to Candice’s mother’s violent death and the rapidly surfacing complexities in their lives. They realize they are capable of anything, be it positive or negative, and it is up to them to make the best choices to avoid being in harm’s way.

Candice, Samar, Sha, and Sabrina are learning how to deal with the highs and lows their lives are hurling at them. Candice is sixteen and is having a preponderant amount of difficulty dealing with her mother’s death and coping with issues regarding her peers. She experiences her first serious romantic relationship. She wonders if their love for one another will stand the test of time, and if their relationship is worth the trouble it brings her way.

Samar, seventeen and the boldest of them all, definitely marches to the beat of her own drum. She is very temperamental, especially because her boyfriend seemingly cannot be faithful to her. She seeks revenge and does not care how evil she has to become to achieve it. Her devilish ways abruptly cease, to everyone’s dismay.

Sha is Samar’s younger sister. At sixteen, Sha is in the process of determining if she wants to discontinue an abusive relationship in order to become involved in a much healthier one. She learns from her mistakes but is unsure if she will repeat them, despite her lessons learned.

Sabrina is seventeen, laid back, and carefree. She mostly keeps to herself and does not need a lot of attention to feel self-assured. She figures having too many girlfriends will cause too many problems she’d rather not deal with. She has strong feelings for a fellow whom she does not trust. She is on the fence about whether to follow her heart, go out on a limb, and give him a chance.
