Not since Donald Goines and Claude Brown has there been such a compelling story written about a young black man's struggles in the hood. In this true to life story the author paints a vivid portrait of why growing up in an climate where happiness is sought in alcohol and needles is just ordinary life in the inner city. Whenever he tries to break the cycle, unseen hands pull Jihad back to his old ways, until a prison sentence pushes him to change the course of his life.
