The number one, best-selling street novel of all time is undoubtedly True to the Game. Dubbed a ‘street classic’, True to the Game takes you on a ride like no other book of its time. 

Pictured in the late 1980’s Gena, a young girl from Philadelphia’s notorious, Richard Allen Projects, meets Quadir, a millionaire drug dealer and falls madly in love. Quadir throughout the story line builds a massive empire, while fighting his rivals and enemies all alongside you, the reader. Gena faces multiple challenges of survival as both Gena and Quadir find themselves caught in a vicious yet seductive world, and learn that success in this game is no easy win. Gena and Quadir also learn that once you’re in, there’s no way out and they discover whether all the players of this game can stay forever…TRUE.

    Easy read...I look forward to part two. Parts were unbelievable. A few typos here and that is the reason for the four stars. Some parts were hard to follow jumping from character to character, but you start to develop an emotional bond with some.

    Didn't care for the book. Too many POV's so it got confusing, and it jumped around a lot. I like urban books but this one was no Bueno. Didn't even care to read the rest of the book after Q died. I'll give it a thumbs down and a waste of a lot of money. The book should be 2 dollars if even that. Horrible book.
