Winter is coming. And no, we are not talking about Game of Thrones. Bestselling author Sister Souljah is returning with the long-awaited sequel to her bestseller, The Coldest Winter Ever. Winter Santiaga returns in 2021 in Life After Death.
If you were a teenage girl growing up in the early 2000s, a little after Cash Money’s 99 to the 2000s, and before AJ and Free left 106th and Park, then The Coldest Winter Ever sat on your bookshelf right next to Omar Tyree’s Flyy Girl. Life After Death is a highly-anticipated sequel since the 2005 bestseller hit the market and did it #ForTheCulture.
