Ever Dance With The Devil?14 year-old Tajalik Stokes is a member of the 17th Street Serpents, a murderous gang in Chicago. After losing his brother to gang violence, Tajalik becomes defiant and violent in his own right. Nonetheless, Tajalik begins to wrestle with his pride when he is confronted with some soul-searching advice by his peculiar guidance counselor, Alfred Justice, who tries to mentor him. Yet, Tajalik's egotism and disobedience land him in a "Dante's Inferno" experience at the gates of hell after a gun fight goes against his favor. Now, in agonizing pain, misery and regret, Tajalik finds himself in a realm of darkness trying to figure out answers as to how he got there. In this Author's Cut of Affiliated, Champion weaves together the same elements from the previous edition, while streamlining the story line to fully immerse the reader into the domain of the streets where good and evil are oftentimes hard to discern.
