When a privileged young woman finds herself on the other side of the tracks and addicted to crack, she will have to turn to an unlikely source to save her.
Lisa Lennox's debut novel transports us to the heart of the crack era: The South Bronx, New York, 1989. In the late 80s and early 90s, the crack epidemic swept through inner city communities like the plague. Mothers abandoned their children and took to the street for a hit. Fathers sold everything they owned to get a taste. The crackhead was a permanent fixture in many communities. Some neighborhoods were never the same.
Enter Laci Johnson, a privileged, smart, beautiful teenage girl from across town, who teams up with The South Bronx Bitches, an infamous girl group known for chasing men and money. When the SBB becomes envious of Laci, they devise a plan to destroy her life. Finding love in the most unexpected of places, Laci turns to a local drug dealer to help save her and heal the wounds of her new addiction.
