Maribel "Fancy" Alvarez is a trendy socialite who has it all: enviable looks, popularity and a closet full of designer threads. She lives an amazing life. At least that's what she's led everyone to believe. Fancy goes to great lengths to keep up a facade of perfection, but when a series of unfortunate events rattles her world, everything begins to fall apart. She's always been taught to use what she's got to get what she wants but deep down inside Fancy knows there is truly more to her than just a beautiful face and perfect body. Will she abandon the superficial lifestyle she's come to know or succumb to the temptation of the almighty dollar? Fancy chronicles the life of a woman torn between the person she is and the person she wants to be. This iconic story will resonate with readers who, like Fancy, have battled issues within, as well as outside influences, while struggling to find themselves amidst a world of chaos. "This urban drama tells the all too familiar story of Fancy, a gorgeous tastemaker who has always used what she has to get what she wants. For today's women who struggle to keep up the illusion of their superficial lifestyles, Fancy hits home like no other." - Shabe Allah-Cleare, Source Magazine "I recently read Fancy by Vanna B. If you have not copped a copy, WHY? I absolutely love this book! With my busy schedule, I usually take a week to read a book. I read this book in two days. I couldn't put it down for anything." - Daja Marie Greer, Hype Magazine "The author did an excellent job the first go around with the potential to only climb in her career." - Readers With Attitude Book Club "Everything and everyone are not what they appear...Fancy experiences a series of dramas that inspires great change for her life." - Vanessa Irvin Morris, StreetLiterature.com "I loved that the main character was a Latina, however, every female can relate to this tale." - Bad Girl of Urban Lit

I read this book on kindle. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was actually a really quick read. I only read in my spare time after work and was done in 2 days. The characters are interesting ... Read full review

I can't wait for part two. This is not your typical urban lit. A must read for all!
