New York Times best-selling author and NAACP Image Award winner Omar Tyree first made a name for himself with this urban classic. In the free-wheeling 1980s, Tracy Ellison is a smart, sassy, and sexy teenager who uses her good looks to get with any boy she wants. Loving and leaving one young man after another, Tracy lives it up for several years. But as she approaches womanhood, she learns hard lessons that force her to take a closer look at her lifestyle.

"This urban classic reflects the 1980s through the eyes of middle-class African-American Philadelphians as Tracy Ellison and her friends grow from childhood to late adolescence. Johnson's voice is wonderfully girlish; however, that same juvenile quality detracts from her characterizations of adults and males over the age of 13. Nonetheless, the exuberance and joie de vivre that Johnson brings to the freewheeling narrative make the story well worth listening to. The teenagers, teetering between childishness and adolescence, are brought vividly to life. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
