(Book 2 of the Bare Series)
A tell-all book about the dark underworld of blessers and slay queens.
After finishing Grade 12 at a boarding school in the Free State, Treasure Mohapi moved back home to Westonaria, a town in the west of Gauteng. Home, however, wasn’t where she wanted to be as she longed for uncomplicated friendships and her dysfunctional family couldn’t offer her that.
Her friend, Bianca, encouraged her to become a model and pursue her dreams and with the intent of supporting herself, Treasure left home and moved into a flat in Braamfontein with another friend, Lintle.
Welcomed by Lintle with open arms and a warm heart, Treasure was confident that all would be well. But building a life in a big city doesn’t come easy and Treasure watched the tall buildings, fancy cars and well-dressed men and women zoom past as they drove north through the city. She wanted designer shoes, beautiful dresses and weaves and asked how she could fulfil all of this when she hadn’t started working. The words “Relax. All you need is a Minister of Finance in your life – someone who will support your desires” came out of Lintle’s mouth.
Money is a weapon; its ammunition is pleasure. But is the pleasure worth the pain and endless sacrifices?
