About the Book

Meet Shirley Ann Taylor. She has seven kids. She's married to Oscar Taylor. He has Schaeffer beer and Gordin's gin. She has dreams outside of the St. Nicholas Projects. Shirley Ann Taylor is stunning and so are her girls. Using what she's got, she orchestrates her escape the best way she can. Does she prostitute her children? Are her choices abusive, life scarring, or at the very least immoral? Is it possible to reside in the richest country in the world yet live worse than people in third world countries? A family ponders these questions as they struggle to come up from under their history.

In Zoning Out, Zoning In, the Taylor sisters take ownership of their past and learn how not to let it define their future.
