Overview

Fresh off lock down, DeAndre is back on the inner-city streets of Chi-Town ready to reclaim the glory that he left behind and get paid in a major way. What he thought was going to be an easy transition back into the life of a hustler quickly revealed otherwise. In the midst of coming up in the game and dealing with his own issues is his sister, Deidre, who is all grown up and heavily involved with a notorious and abusive kingpin.

    Must Have

    This book grabs your attention from the first page and doesnt let go. I read this book when I was in High school. Im now a junior in college. I still talk about this book like I read it yesterday. Im the type of person that will put a book down if it doesnt hold my attention from the first page and Like I said this book does.

    CHANCES

    This book was outstanding. I believe every young black boy in america who thinks that hustling is always the easy way out should read this book, because D'andre not only learn that life could be taken away from you at any minute and not to take things for granted, but his sister learn that everything things thats given to you for free is not always good to take, and to never under estamite anything or anyone.

    Dang D'Andre

    D'Andre just gets out of prison and trying to get back into the swing of things. Being away for so long it was hard for him to get his swagger back in the hustle game but he had his bestfriend Eric and sister Deidre looking out for him. Soon as her gets his hustle back and starts with his come up he learns his sister is getting abused by her kingpin boyfriend. Desperate to defend her honor he starts a rival between D'andre crew and his sister's boyfriend's crew. Also, the same time he has to deal with a ex-love who betrayed him and trying to get in good graces. Will D'Andre be able to keep the game locked? I thought this book was really a great read. My opinion also is that alot of the things in there were hard to believe or a little fairytale but I still enjoyed reading the story all in all. I couldnt put it down with all the drama and chaos. It gives you money, power, murder, love, and great sex. The combination for a great book!!
