Queen Pen first rose to stardom as a hit-making rap artist, then with a popular collection of short stories, Situations. Now she makes her debut as a novelist with Blossom, a love story of ultimate passion and desperate measures. Blossom, a beautiful schoolgirl, gets a taste of the good life when she meets Dude, an older, charismatic street hustler. Lavished with expensive jewelry, exotic getaways, and, most important, her first love, Blossom's life is transformed. But her fairy tale is quickly ended when a murder occurs -- a murder meant for the two lovers.

From the streets of Brooklyn to the beaches of the Dominican Republic, Blossom takes us on the rocky journey of falling in love with a hustler. T Mac, Dude's brother, meets a tragic fate, and Dude's emotional pain and controlling temper cause him to change his attitude toward Blossom. Deceit becomes the new foundation of their relationship, and Blossom is left feeling abandoned and betrayed but still in love.

With the same artistry and honesty that put Queen Pen on top of the charts as a rapper, as an author she delivers a rhythmic, fast-paced urban novel that will teach us a lesson on love.
