Summary
James Skier aka "Skee" has a raw perception of women: they're here to take care of him. And his 18-year-old girlfriend, Ariana Houston, does just that. Her parents accepted him and her father even offers him a job, but he has a better idea; he wants to sell dope. Unbeknownst to Ariana, he finds a weed plug in the only person he knows will front him the product, an aged and respected gangster from his old neighborhood. Skee sells out fast and it seems that he's found his niche. Even when he gets robbed at gunpoint, he switches to selling powder cocaine and hustles harder. He moves out his mother's house and, with pride, treats his girl to a shopping spree-but under the guise that he has a real job. That very night, though, after a heated argument, he tells her he sells drugs and she storms out. Does he care? No. He has bigger problems that threaten to tear down his newfound success. Ariana Houston devoted herself to being the perfect girlfriend to Skee despite the rumors she heard that he's a cheater. But when she finds out he sells drugs, she leaves him. Her best friend, Brandy, is happy for her new singleness and encourages her to go out with Ronnell "Scrill" Jackson, a well-paid brotha that goes to their college. Soon after she sleeps with him, she feels a painful guilt, as if she cheated on Skee. That guilt turns to horror when she finds out that Scrill sells drugs too and that someone very close to her is his boss. And they're planning to kill Skee! Will she be able to warn her ex-boyfriend in time? Should she?--Publisher's description
