Synopsis:

If a brother wanna get ahead, he gotta use every minute to better himself. Everything I did made me better — tougher, stronger, richer, smarter — or I didn't do it.

Take high school. A waste of time. Nobody there taught me what I needed to survive on the streets....

Ty Johnson knows survival. Since inheriting his pop's business at sixteen, Ty's developed smarts, skills, and mad discipline. The supply game's in his blood. And life is pretty sweet when you're on top.

But one slip — or one serious competitor — and life turns ugly fast. Suddenly, Ty's got to rethink his whole strategy. And for the #1 dealer on the streets, strategy is not just about staying ahead. It's about survival.

Synopsis:

Inspired by her experience teaching in inner-city Brooklyn, van Diepen delivers a striking debut novel that tells the story of one soldier--one boy--on the front lines of the U.S. drug-dealing empire.
