Through their laughter and tears these friends learned the hard way that life is not a game, but its what we make of it, which determine our final destination or how we survive or what our outcome will be. They believe you can reach for the stars, but you should never alter your dreams, you go and get them by using any means necessary or "get it how it comes". In vivid detail, the author transports the reader into an environment that many do not encounter-the abject poverty and hopelessness of life in an Atlanta housing project. Although she deals drugs in order to survive, Mercedes knows that this is not a long term survival method and is determined to re-enroll in college to ultimately become a Psychiatrist.
All eight friends will share their own strange tales of horror in the drug game while gambling and drinking at Mercedes house.
