Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson

Publisher Information:  New York, NY:  Katherine Tegen Books, 2020. 

Summary:  Korey Fields is dead. 

When Enchanted wakes up with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night, no one - the police and Korey's fans included - has more questions than she does.  All she really knows is that this isn't how things are supposed to be.  Korey was Enchanted's ticket to stardom. 

Before there was a dead body, Enchanted was an aspiring singer, struggling with her tight knit family's recent move to the suburbs while trying to find her place as the lone Black girl in high school.  But then legendary R&B artist Korey Fields spots her at an audition.  And suddenly, her dream of being a professional singer takes flight.

Enchanted is dazzled by Korey's luxurious life but soon her dreams turn into a nightmare.  Behind Korey's charm and star power hides a dark side, one that wants to control her every move, with rage and consequences.  Except now he's dead and the police are at the door.  Who killed Korey Fields?

All signs point to Enchanted.
