Funny, Passionate, and straight from the soul, Vera Wright-Turner thinks she has it all under control until she meets and greets herself. Born on the Flip Side of the hustler's game, she is the child of a fifteen year old drug addict who places her in a trash dump, with a note that read, ''Please forgive me . . . my mother's only fifteen . . .'' Well that is of little consolation to Vera as she lives her gold diggin' life full speed ahead, only to come to a crashing halt when she realizes that she can run but she can't hide; and facing up to the Flip Side of the Game is the only way she will survive.
