Two children from Sierra Leone, Liberty and A’shai, are brought together by chance, only to be forced apart by the most inevitable and tragic fate. Ashley & JaQuavis bring us this classic love story set against modern life’s most horrifying realities.

Liberty is dying of a fatal heart condition, though she desperately wants to survive until her twenty-fifth birthday, when her sister has promised to visit her. A’shai blames himself for not protecting Liberty, but all Liberty asks is for A’shai to tell her a story, to help her remember what brought them to this point. He knows that this is the last story he will ever tell—and the last she will ever hear.

As Liberty lies dying, A’shai walks her through their past, reliving their ill-fated journeys through the streets. Their story will take them from an arranged marriage, through Mexico’s drug cartel, child brothels, and hustling in Detroit, to escaping the high-powered heads of LA’s underworld. But ultimately, this is a story of love and redemption that will leave you breathless from the unpredictable and mind-blowing ending.

    " I was not happy with the ending of this book! A certain person should have lived at the end! But this a great urban/street love story that crosses boundries, space and time. I can honestly say that it reminded me of an urban Romeo and Juliet story. "

    " This was a really good book by Ashley JaQuavis..They are very talented writers...When they get a hold of a pen magic happens...The only thing I don't like about their books is that there are never any happy endings...I can honestly say I have never read a bad book by them...All their books are really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 1/13/2014

    " This book, I loved. It was amazing to read all they went through to be together and then end up apart. I loved how A'shai killed himself just because he thought Liberty was going to die and he didn't want to live without her. I cant wait until the second part comes out. Only 5 more days! I already am starting to predict how Liberty and Po come into each others lives. "
