Imagine coming home to find a farewell note, an empty refrigerator, a disconnect notice from the electric company, and an eviction letter giving you thirty days to vacate the premises—all without a job to fall back on. Well, that’s what happened to Africa Evans, a shy, insecure woman without a back-up plan. From one bad choice to another, Africa leans on love as an escape from her dilemma. But, for this girl from da hood, tough love may prove detrimental to her well-being.
Harmony isn’t the person everybody thinks she is, and she damn sure ain’t the person she wants to be. Leading the double life of good girl / wanna-be bad girl, she hooks up with Nikko, the son of a notorious hustler and hood legend. He introduces her to a whole other side of the game. As if living a double life wasn’t hard enough, Harmony now finds herself living a triple life—a life she never thought wanting to be a girl from da hood would bring.
Unique’s conniving mind hasn’t changed a bit since the old days in the hood. Scheming is something that comes naturally to her. All her life she has been molded into the worst kind of woman: a straight-up hood rat who has no dignity when it comes to a dollar. She’ll do anything she can to get what she wants. Unique isn’t working for squat. If it is true that hard work builds character, then she is one no-character-having bitch. Why should she, as a pretty as she is? She believes that a man will take care of her, and if he doesn’t, then she will just take it by any means necessary.
