Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you felt like you were dying and the only thing that could save you was the very thing that was killing you?
Persia Chandler doesn't know the meaning of the world struggle. After the arrest of her notorious father, she is whisked away from Harlem, the only place she has ever called home, to be raised in an affluent neighborhood in Long Island City. Her mother and stepfather shower her with the best that life has to offer. During her senior year in high school, she convinces her parents to let her transfer from Catholic school to attend public school. That is the start of her problems - but it's hardly the end. In her new school, Persia is reunited with the friends she was forced to move away from and starts to drift further and further from the life her mother and stepfather have built for her. To the sheltered Persia, the Harlem underworld is like one big adventure. Things promise to get even more interesting when she starts dating a dealer named Chucky. He introduces her to his world of sex, money, and drugs, dragging Persia along with him on a long and bitter ride into the bowels of addiction.

This migro wss so scared he pulled out 20 thousand dollars to keep me from telling my brother what he did. And yes i took the money avid i still told. My brother fucked him up to the point he wasn't recognizable to his mother. now when he sees me he's still apologizing this has been going on since 1986 it's now 2017. His name is Reggie Baker ole soft ass bitch. ok now on to book 2.. I'll Wait....
