Overview

Teresa D. Patterson, author of Project Queen, delivers a gritty, gripping tale of urban life with no sugarcoating.

How far would you go to clean up your 'hood?

Tired of constantly reading headlines about the violence being committed in his community, Xavier Brunswick decides to form Brothers Takin’ Over (BTO) with three of his childhood friends. BTO’s original intention is to help clean up the ‘hood, but large egos and clashing personalities causes them to lose focus of their main goal.

In addition to dealing with BTO, Xavier ‘s problems at home continue to fester. He’s angry at his father who is “passing” for white and vows to never become like him. Just when he thinks things can get no worse, his dope-fiend brother, Woodrow, returns from the streets and throws the family into chaos.

Having to deal with back-stabbing friends, an alcoholic father, and a crack-head brother is almost more than Xavier can bear. How much can he endure before he finally snaps?

This was definitely a good book.  You could see  how friends turned into enemies,how families fell apart, and also what can happen when you let anger fester.

This story was too depressing and the characters didnt need enemies because they had each other for that purpose.
