Publisher's Summary

Two children from Sierra Leone, Liberty and A’shai, are brought together by chance, only to be forced apart by the most inevitable and tragic fate. Ashley & JaQuavis bring us this classic love story set against modern life’s most horrifying realities.
Liberty is dying of a fatal heart condition, though she desperately wants to survive until her 25th birthday, when her sister has promised to visit her. A’shai blames himself for not protecting Liberty, but all Liberty asks is for A’shai to tell her a story, to help her remember what brought them to this point. He knows that this is the last story he will ever tell—and the last she will ever hear.
As Liberty lies dying, A’shai walks her through their past, reliving their ill-fated journeys through the streets. Their story will take them from an arranged marriage, through Mexico’s drug cartel, child brothels, and hustling in Detroit, to escaping the high-powered heads of LA’s underworld. But ultimately, this is a story of love and redemption that will leave you breathless from the unpredictable and mind-blowing ending.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to any and all of the books that Ashley/JaQuavis write, I'm really liking them. I do think I should have started with this book first, before I listened to Cartel 1,2 &3 seeing the Murda Mama's were hired toward the end of this book.

COMPELLING...GREAT LOVE STORY...JUST FABULOUS!!!!!

OMG!!! This book was absolutely gripping! I LOVED THIS STORY. I wasn't sure exactly what it was supposed to be, but I'm sure glad I got it. The narrator was ABSOLUTELY SUPERB! And I loved the subtle occasional sound effects. I don't normally like them because they become obnoxious and irritating but in this case, it was nice/enhancing. The story was just wonderful. All of the conflicts and twists and turns...and the love story in the midst of it all was just so sweet and at times, sad. I can't say too much so's not to give away too much info. It's definitely worth a chip or cash price! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. I'm definitely ready for Book II. Just be prepared for the true to life beginnings of this book. I hope this helps you all. Happy Listening!
