"Sunshyne's story will make you mad, sad, and hopeful all at once." 16 year old Sunshyne Carter was sworn to secrecy. Her stepfather was clear - no one could know anything until her 18th birthday. Or else her Mom, a.k.a Crazy, would go ballistic. But Sunshyne drops the bomb early -- and it costs her everything: Her family, her best friend, and her confidence. Life can't get any worse. Then Sunshyne meets Randy... 17 year old Randy Johnson sees right through cynical and sarcastic Sunshyne. He senses her #BlackGirlMagic instantly and wants nothing more than to get to know her better. And with his blue dreadlocks and contagious laugh, Randy is exactly the kind of guy Sunshyne needs in her life. Or is he? Stuck between the guy she loves and the mother who hates her, little by little Sunshyne is able to release the nagging shame that's been weighing her down. But the healing comes with a cost. Sunshyne has to dig deep into a web of family lies -- and she discovers that nothing is what it seems to be. Can she keep going? Or is it easier to just pretend that her life really isn't so bad? "This book is a life affirming tear-jerker."

Tiffany and Marcus are the teenage couple who began frequenting the Trap House after snorting a few lines at a party. Can their love for each other withstand the demands of their fledging addiction, or will it tear them apart?
