							Young, beautiful, and ambitious, Bontle Tau has Johannesburg wrapped around her finger. Her generous admirers are falling over themselves to pay for her Mercedes, her penthouse, and her Instagrammable holidays. It's a long way from the neighborhood she started out in, and it's been far from easy. 

Along with making sure she always looks fabulous—because people didn't sacrifice their lives in the freedom struggle for black women to wear the same cheap T-shirts they wore during apartheid—Bontle's also hustling to get her business off the ground. And if that wasn't enough, her ex is still refusing to sign their divorce papers. It's not that she stopped loving him; he was just so stubborn about wasting his medical degree on treating the poor. 

Yes, Bontle gets the blues from time to time—who doesn't?—and the shrink keeps wanting to talk about a past she's put firmly behind her, but what she doesn't think about can't hurt her, can it?
