Publisher's Summary

Lamont "Hood" Mason is a fearless 19-year-old gangsta who was born and raised in the projects of Brooklyn, New York. He was an abandoned child who roamed the city streets and fought hard for survival. The only thing constant in his young life was the safety of a Brownsville barbershop owned by a father figure called Fat Daddy. The barbershop is where Hood comes of age, but cutting hair isn't the only thing Fat Daddy has going on. His daughter, Egypt, is the love of Hood's young life and the one person whose dreams of a stable future can lead him off the grimy urban corners and out of the hustling life.
But when Fat Daddy crosses paths with Xanbar, a notoriously brutal drug kingpin, his vices threaten to bring death down on the family Hood loves. In an effort to protect his own, Hood and his best friend and hustling partner, Dreko, take to the streets on a bloody mission that doesn't go exactly as planned. Hood returns to find his world turned upside down by a wave of sex, violence, and betrayal. No longer the starving kid on the street, now he's a man seeking vengeance and retribution, and he might be forced to choose between bending and breaking as he picks up the shattered pieces of his life one by one.

This was even better as an audio book!

I read Hood many years ago when it was first released and I loved the book. I decided to purchase it as an audiobook because Cary Hite was narrating it. I'm so glad I did. This was even better as an audio book! Cary Hite is so amazing. He brings every character to life and makes listening so much fun!
