Street lit or urban fiction is an exciting new genre that combines the elements of street lingo with fast-paced action and highly-charged romance. It’s an easy-to-read, accessible format that will keep you turning the pages. Young people find this genre especially compelling, but traditionalists may want to give one of the novels in this burgeoning field a shot to see what the fuss is all about.
