Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, not too long ago, a young girl from the projects met Quadir, far from home, in the middle of Harlem. Now the story is told of how it all went down.
It’s the late 1980s, and Gena finds herself in true-blue love with Quadir, a millionaire associated with the cartel. Quadir is faced with combating the art of extortion and interception masterminded by the notorious Junior Mafia, which reigns from the inner-city streets of Philadelphia. Both Gena and Quadir find themselves caught up in the vicious yet seductive world of drugs and money, only to find that success in this game is no easy win. True to the Game represents life on the streets and is like no other story of its time.
There’s no way out once you’re in, and everyone stays in forever … True.
Teri Woods is a native of Philadelphia where she worked as a legal secretary/paralegal for eight years. She started writing True to the Game in 1993 and began submitting it to publishers in 1994. After being turned down, the book sat dormant for several years. In 1998 she began selling handmade books on the street and out of the trunk of her car. Soon she started her own publishing and production company, Meow Meow Productions, now called Teri Woods Publishing.

I LIKED IT

I really liked this book. The ending had me anxious to get to book 2. But the next 2 books should be free because they do not meet the standards of book 1.

Pass on this

This audiobook had sound effects, which was a pleasant surprise, but a few gunshots and tire squeals can't make a bad book good. There were far too many characters, which made it hard to remember who was who. The story dragged on needlessly with one shooting and expensive gift after another one. Usually, I'm a sucker for a trilogy, but I'll pass on this one.
