"A true urban novel filled with vivid images of the street." -Black Issues Book Review Treasure E. Blue, street lit's hottest newcomer, crafts characters that fly off the page and a story that burns with intensity. Set in Harlem, this searing novel is a poignant and gritty portrait of urban survival of the ghetto's fittest . . . and most fierce. Silver Jones knows just how cruel life can be. Her mother was chewed up and spit out by its dark side-brutally murdered while turning a trick. Rather than live with her abusive grandmother, Silver runs away. Determined to escape the mean streets, Silver longs for an education. But after running into an old friend, a homeless youth named Chance whom she'd taken under her wing once upon a time, Silver puts her dreams of college on hold. Chance is grown now-and he's a powerful drug overlord. But underneath the cool exterior is the same innocent boy Silver once loved. As they begin an affair, Silver tries to convince Chance to give up the lethal way of life that ruined both their childhoods. But Chance knows that walking away from the game means having to pay a deadly price. Silver won't take no for an answer-even if it means delving into a seedy underworld and outscheming some of its most vicious drug-dealers and cold-blooded murderers. "Even in Blue's world of double-crossing, misogyny, drugs and brutality, an against-all-odds fairy tale can come true." -Publishers Weekly
