Off the Wall Good

Growing up attuned to the hustler lifestyle, Kyra Jones goes from spoiled princess to being dropped abruptly into reality's many offenses. 'Fast Life' is Carter's first novel filled with an intensity that won't let you put the book down. An impressive read for all those looking for a ride-of-your-life storyline.
