Summary

Love, betrayal, and loyalty on the streets of Harlem.

Daruis, aka Rio, the only child of a singer turned alcoholic, feels he has nothing to hold on to except the idea of escaping the ghetto. Years ago he took a gun charge for a friend and did some prison time. Unable to find a job when he gets out, Rio turns to hustling and finds escape in the arms of his soul mate, Trinity.

When Trinity's mother dies, her abusive father looks to her to play the role of housewife and bedmate. Trinity finds strength to endure in Rio's arms, and together they vow to do whatever it takes to make it out of the ghetto. But soon they find their backs against the wall when the streets come to claim their due.

Street Dreams

SPOILERS <<<
The truck is a B, lol! When he saw The Hound, he said: "You know what?" I hope his little snitch *** get murked. And I am glad he got what he deserved too. Because he set Cutty up and end up in the cell with Cutty, ha, KARMA's is a mother I tell you. Plus the only real dudes was in this book to me was Cutty, Mel, Rio, Prince, Jay, and the kid that Mel hung out with that left. It was sad that they all died in the end except Cutty, but still, Rio went out like the G that he was. Plus, it's crazy how people underestimated Rio, but what brought his demon Side out was the situations that has to happen to Trinity or if someone says something about her. He truly love that girl, I felt he should've killed himself, I mean love will do that to a person. I am just glad everyone found out who Truck really was. Also, I want a book about The Hound and Kane. I love them lol they are awesome.

Super Urban Novel

Great read with interesting characters that you root for or hate with every chapter. The narrator Corey Hite is excellent.

It’s a must READ

I like the story line but I wish the ending ended differently. Not to mention it wasn’t clear.

Beautiful but heart-breaking love

I loved this book because it reminded me of myself when I was younger. I had a boyfriend that would have done anything for me no matter what it was as I would return the favor. Rio and Trinity had true love for one another. Rio was trying to make his and his family's life better. He wanted to stay out of the drug game, but yet he made a bargain with the devil making a fatal mistake that would end up costing his life, his woman, and his best friend. That part of the story was so tragic. I could imagine myself in this story just in the moment when I read this book. I just hated when Prince was killed by the hitman and especially the one whom ordered the hit. The best part is when truck got his in the end. This is a action packed mystery you will want to read.

WOW!

I love the book but I wasn’t expecting such a sad ending I would have loved to see Trinity and Rio flourish out the hood. But overall it was a great read and had me continuously listening.
