Better Than I Know Myself

By Virginia DeBerry, Donna Grant, Patrick Fraley & Hillary Huber
Narrated by Lisa Renee Pitts / 19 hours 30 minutes

The beloved #1 Essence bestselling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they are at a crossroad, and each is pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards. Jewel is Hollywood royalty. As the teenage star of the television show Daddy's Girl, her face is instantly recognizable all across America. Now, though, she wants only to get a serious education and to leave her controlling stage-mother behind. Regina is the definitive upper-middle-class African American girl. Her picture-perfect parents are what she calls "black Ward and June Cleavers" and their goals for her are like a stranglehold. Ando no one can see how far Regina's rebellious side will take her-or how treacherous it will become. Carmen is just trying to get by. A child of the projects whose father is dead and whose mother has vanished, she has been raised by her abusive brother. Columbia is the way for her to get a better life-if she can hold down two jobs and keep her GPA up. As the years progress, they are challenged by drug addiction, fame, secrets from the past, sickness, betrayal, and the darkest things women can face. But each has what the others need, and their circle of sisterhood, though strained, is never broken-not even by death. Better Than I Know Myself is a novel of heartache, triumph, tears, and the unshakeable bonds among women.
