About the Book

1983, a crazy year. Stolen cars were not at the groundbreaking rate of the 70’s, but the numbers were still impressive. Crap games, 40oz and weed spots, cookouts, scraps, two hand tag football in the street, went on as usual in the Garfield Heights projects. Deacon, Carter, Maxwell and Tank were counting down the days till their high school graduations. While hanging out at Deacon's barber shop, located in his basement at 5151 Columbo Street. Kenny and Lamar were best friends, enjoying their early twenties, living carefree. The two have a chance encounter at a campus party with Jennifer and Heather, two college students from the suburbs. Jennifer's attraction towards Kenny was obvious. Kenny eventually gives in to her sexuall advances and she falls in love with him. But will the love last once Jennifer's secrets are revealed to her wealthy dad and fiance? Or will Kenny become the scapegoat?
