Summary
Langston Holiday was forced to move with his no-nonsense mother into the gritty public housing projects of Poindexter Village, better known as "The Vil," after his father abandoned them. Without any assistance, his mother is determined to make a man out of Langston--and she's doing a pretty good job. By the end of his senior year, Langston is one of the best high-school basketball players in the nation. That's when he makes the biggest decision of his life: to forgo college and enter the professional ranks. When word hits the streets that Langston is about to hit the big time, his newfound wealth stirs up plenty of envy in the projects, sparking a wave of unthinkable drama and crime. He's being relentlessly pursued by Toy Daniels, a has-been athlete who's determined to sign Langston to his newly formed sports agency. Langston's best friend, Jalen, becomes involved in shady dealings with people who are known for nothing but trouble, and his girlfriend, Tori, is quickly becoming fed up with Langston's wandering ways. Suddenly, Langston doesn't know who he can trust
