Publisher's Summary

Beware of the company you keep.

K’wan’s urban fiction coming-of-age novel, Promise Broken, is set in the gritty streets of Newark, New Jersey. The story follows 17-year-old Promise Mohammed as she attempts to uphold friendships and new relationships - even if they lead to her demise.

After Promise’s mother dies in a tragic car accident, it leaves a void in Promise’s life that she is yearning to fill. This titular novel finds Promise spiraling into a life of crime and drug affiliation by the company she chooses to keep.

Also coping with abandonment and a lifelong broken commitment from her biological father, Promise ultimately has two goals: to graduate from high school and to be loved. But can she find the love that she seeks from Aunt Dell, two best friends, Mouse and Keys, or drug-dealer Asher - the man who captivates her - despite the fact that each relationship will lead to life-altering events? Only time will tell.

To the narrator.

ok so just a heads to the narrator, being a Newark resident.
Weequahic high is pronounced Week- way not Week-a-hic, and Piru is pronounced Pie- Ru, not
Pee- ru. Something you should definitely know if narrating Urban audio books. i can go on with a mutiple more hiccups, but ill let you live. Other than that overall good book and good story line.

The reading is frustrating

Idk how so many people rated the performance of the reading so high. The strange pauses drove me nuts. The narrator would pause at an unnatural portion of the sentence and it was weird. The story was so slow then abruptly finished. I was a little confused when it was just suddenly ended. I just expected more of a full story.

Woooooooo

Wooooo…. If you don’t know. I love me some K’Wan books. Broken Promise was a great read. I listened to it on Audible. It kept my attention the whole time.
I’m excited to see what happens in the next episode to Promise, Mouse, Asher and Keys (now I know why they call him that)
I’m excited and ready for book 2 of the promise series.
