Descember is dating Fame and within the first 12 pages, she's threated her step-dad, given Fame a handjob in a movie theater, left the theater to go have sex with him in his car in some secluded, woodsy-type spot and watched him get shot 3 times by some guy on a motorcycle. Although this sounds exciting, I found it hard to connect with because all Descember and Fame do is rob people, sell crap to people to make money, have sex and fight. If they're not getting high, they're arguing with someone if gangsta-ese and it just sounds ridiculous. I feel like I've read similar books that were much better written and had more of a plot. I only read this because a committee I sit on chose urban fiction as the topic. I do no recommend this book if you're looking for a good story, a book with a plot or a good read.
