From the Publisher
Annotation Former rapper and activist Sister Souljah follows up her previous bestseller, THE COLDEST WINTER EVER, with the story of young Midnight, a child of seven who is helping his mother Umma adjust to Brooklyn life after they fled a more comfortable existence in Sudan. As a youth, Midnight supports his mother and helps her with English; adolescence, though, brings its complexities: Midnight finds love and gets involved with a group of questionable basketball hustlers. This meditation on the allure of the streets and the ties of family is both rugged and emotional, grounded as it is in Souljah's gritty prose.
