She has more game in the streets than a basketball player does on the court, and her boyfriend, Fame, loves every single inch of her. But unlike her mother, who has been in one bad relationship after another, Desember is not going to wait on a knight in shining armor to save her, and even her love for Fame can't stand in the way of Desember selling anything and everything--legal or illegal--that can turn a profit, so that she never has to depend on a man.

The reigning Queen of Hip-Hop Lit, Nikki Turner returns with a fresh and fierce tale sure to satisfy longtime fans and create new ones.

Desember Day is beautiful, confident, and smart. She has more game in the streets than a basketball player does on the court, and her boyfriend, Fame, loves every single inch of her.

Desember wonders if she was the real target. Her mother, concerned for Desember's safety, arranges for her daughter to travel to Richmond, Virginia, to live with Desember's father and his wife.And when her father's identity is finally revealed, Desember learns that she is a Natural Born Hustler.

But are her troubles really over? Or is the worst yet to come?
