Ty Johnson inherited the family business at 14 when his father went to jail. Now 17 years old, Ty is one of the most successful drug dealers in Brooklyn. He is charming and skilled and he operates with an ethical code that has earned him serious street cred. But Ty's professional and personal life is thrown into chaos when heavyweight competitors enters the neighbourhood. Inspired by her teaching in inner-city Brooklyn, Van Diepen tells the gripping story of one boy soldier on the front lines of the US drug dealing empire.
