FROM THE PUBLISHER
Seventeen-year-old Keisha is the beautiful, sheltered daughter of an activist
pastor with a checkered past. Handsome, ambitious Jamal-a street-savvy crack
dealer-is the son of North Philly's most notorious drug kingpin. A history of
violence and betrayal lies between their fathers, who are now bitter enemies.
After one of his church members is gunned down-with a bullet he is sure is
meant for him-Pastor Anderson goes after Frank Nichols, determined to drive
him from the neighborhood for good. There's just one problem: Keisha and
Jamal are in love.
When the families face off on opposite sides of an anti-drug demonstration, a
high-ranking police official is killed in the crossfire, and Jamal becomes
the prime suspect in the murder. Keisha is left with a choice. Will she stay
with her father, in the confines of the sheltered world she's known, or will
she venture into the unknown in order to help Jamal clear his name? She
chooses Jamal, and in a whirlwind flight across the seamy underside of
Philadelphia, Keisha will risk everything for love. Even her life.
