BooksBrown's epic (after Criminal Minded) explores New York's ghettoes of the 1980s and '90s, following two characters caught up in the crack epidemic. Brooklynite Jada turns to the drug to numb the pain caused by an abusive stepfather and helpless mother. Her transformation from feisty teenager into crackhead is rapid and explicit, and Brown spares no wretched detail of Jada's descent. Meanwhile, on Staten Island, Born is growing from the impressionable son of a legendary "Original Gangster" into a hardcore hustler in his own right, fueled in part by the hurt over his father's weakness for the rock. When Born and a newly clean Jada cross paths as young adults, their common survivor spirit sparks a fairy tale love, and for a time, they live the blinged-out high life together. But one careless snort of coke at a party sends Jada spiraling again, and Born shuns her. It's not long before strung-out Jada hits bottom. Jada and Born reunite years later after escaping the drug world,as the lessons learned pile up. As ugly as their actions can be, Brown's characters are sympathetically drawn, and the Goodfellas-like take on the gangster life is eye-opening.

About me:For my readers… I believe that life is an open book, and there are a few ways to approach it. There are those who will read all about it, scouring the pages hungry for knowledge and thirsty for drama. There are those who write the books. They are the interpreters, the poets, the painters of words. And then there are those who are written about. The doers, the heroes, the ones who impact history. Life is an open book with many characters, many stories, a broad range of emotions and different genres. Some people are walking romance novels. Others are mysteries. We’ll encounter relationships that are horror stories. Often we are left in suspense. Each day is a clean page, and each day brings some clear light, and hope for a happy ending. It is an honor to depict for you in words the things that I have seen and heard. Thank you for reading. Visit www.tracy-brown.com for more. ..
