If I Ruled the WorldBook - 2005
Harlem Jones has come up the hard way, bouncing from foster home to foster home after her perfect family dissolved in the wake of a crack-addicted mother. Finally ending up with her grandmother, she has inherited the old lady's estate and opened a business with Megan, her best friend. Then an unexpected and unlikely love comes her way - a drug dealer named York. Not your typical hood, York is out for her heart. But when tragedy strikes, Harlem knows that as a survivor, she must be the one to decide her own destiny.
