Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A prominent new voice in urban fiction, Vickie Stringer has gained respect--and success--with her thrilling, realistic narratives of contemporary street life. In the follow-up to her bestselling debut, she once again takes readers into the dark underbelly of the street scene and presents the difficult (and dangerous) choices people must make to preserve their families... and their lives. For a while, Pamela had it all. She and Chino, a successful player in the street game, were in love. He gave her emotional security, financial stability, and her own business. But in time, tensions on their relationship took their toll and Chino walked out, leaving Pamela with no means of support and their young son to care for. Strapped for cash, Pamela takes on a different persons and starts an escort service. Before long she's once again living large and hanging with the most powerful drug dealers in the business. But Pamela finds herself down and out once again when the law catches up to her, and this time her future is even less certain. Infused with the excitement and drama of love and a life of crime, "Imagine This is a cautionary tale of extreme highs and unfathomable lows, and the fine line in between.

Synopsis:

Imagine This is the sequel to Vickie Stringer's bestselling Let That Be the Reason, her stunning debut novel based on life as she knew it in the shocking underworld of the sex and drug trade.

Vickie Stringer has gained a legion of fans for her portrayal of Pamela, a.k.a. Carmen, a woman who had it all but lost out when the love of her life left her penniless and alone to raise their son. Pamela refuses to remain powerless, though. She pulls herself up, becomes a major hustler in the street game, gains independence, and makes big money — but the consequences are more dreadful than she ever imagined.

Imagine This continues the saga of Pamela as she does jail time and has to decide who she really is: Pamela, a woman who, more than anything, loves her son and wants to be there to raise him; or Carmen, the ruthless baller, who does the crime, serves the time, and honors, at any expense, the code of the street.
