In her bestselling novel "The Coldest Winter Ever," Sister Souljah had introduced Midnight, a brave but humble lieutenant to a prominent underworld businessman. Now she brings readers dangerously close to the heart of this silent, fearless young man.
From the Publisher:
Sent to America with his mother when his father's powerful empire is attacked, underworld lieutenant Midnight draws on his African intelligence and Muslim mindset to protect those he loves and reclaim his wealth and way of life.
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.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.

"[S]parkly and seductive from the jump, bursting at its spine with couture call-outs and stacks of dirty money." - Shanel Odum 11/01/2008
