"In Paige's intense debut novel, the loves, ambitions, and treacheries of assorted characters play out against the backdrop of life in New York... Paige is a master at welding dialect, never over doing it, and never turning her characters into caricatures. Harsh, gritty, and realistically character-driven, this detailed look ... should gratify anyone who loves a well-told, convincing urban tale." --Kirkus Review. Self-centered and lacking childhood models for success, Miah is drawn to the allure of some of the street's most beguiling figures, men like Hoffa. But she soon learns that there is a deadly price to be paid for such associations. In an attempt to flee from Hoffa, she aligns herself with J.R., only to see the dynamics of her experience further complicate itself as she crosses paths with Jasmine, J.R's loyal love interest. As Miah burns bridges, she finds herself at a point of no return. Miah learns that everything comes full circle, and a "boss" is more than just appearances.
