Description

From a fresh new voice with talent to burn comes this brash bitter sweet novel about Tracy Ellison, a young girl with knockout looks, slanted hazel eyes, tall hair, and attitude, as she comes of age during the hip-hop era. Motivated by the material life, Tracy, her friends, and the young men who will do anything to get next to them are plunged into a world of violence, gratuitous sex, and heartbreak. Slowly, Tracy begins to examine her life, her goals, and her sexuality—as she evolves from a Flyy Girl into a woman.
A captivating tale, written with fluid narrative and contemporary dialect, Flyy Girl captures the complete feel and sounds of the streets and is destined to become an urban classic.

    This is my second time reading this novel since I was in the 7th grade (23 now) and my entire perspective of it has changed. Everything that I once fantasized over is no longer there. I’m not disappointed by any means, just surprised at how different my train of thought has matured since last time I read the novel. This book was the reason I became hooked to this Author in particular. And I always wanted to read this novel again. And I knew I would, one of these days. It’s still an amazing story. I’m just astounded at how differently I view this novel.

    This is my favorite book. I first read this book in 8th grade and instantly fell in love. I had the pleasure to meet Omar Tyree in high school my teacher went to college with him.

    I have bought this book so many times for my little sisters and little cousins. Omar Tyree is truly a gifted storyteller, he entertains you, and he gives you something to think about. Omar has been a major influence to me as a writer. This was the first novel I have ever read and I will tell you that you will never be disappointed when it comes to a Omar Tyree publication. Peace & Love

    Read this book in h.s after one of the most popular books (coldest winter ever) didn't think it would be as interesting but to my surprise it most definitely was just as good to read. Ready to read this book again!
