Omar Tyree captures the voice of middle-class black teenagers in Urban America. The main character, Tracy Ellison, a young girl with knockout looks, sexy, curvy, boy crazy, spoiled and is at times conceited. As she comes of age she is often motivated by the material life of the Hip Hop era in the 1980s.
Tracy gets caught up in the fast life and soon finds herself trapped in a world of violence, drugs and sex. Having gone through a major ordeal living the fast life she starts to do some self-examination and comes to the conclusion that she needs to change her life for the better.
