Description - Slipping by Y Blak Moore
Growing up in a Chicago ghetto, seventeen-year-old Donald Don-Don Haskill has nothing but time on his hands time he rarely spends in school, choosing instead to smoke weed and hang out with friends. As a child, he witnessed his father s suicide, and today Don-Don s relationship with his mother, a worn-down cop trying to keep the family together is tenuous at best. Then Don-Don meets a girl with a taste for crack and his delinquent life turns violently criminal. Consumed with chasing his next hit, alienating even his best friends, Don-Don works the streets like a pro. In pursuit of the demon, no deal is too shady. But when a huge drug transaction goes terribly awry, a bloody chain of events is set off, as Don-Don becomes a moving target, not just for the Chicago police force but for the ghetto s most hardened thugs. . . ."
