Total amount:

This is a fictional novel based on true events. It is about three youths being raised in the housing projects of Paul M. Pearson Gardens. While facing their struggles of growing up in the Ghettos and adapting to the streets of the Virgin Islands, they become a product of their environment, where crime and violence are a normal part of their everyday lives.

Money, guns, and drugs became their passion. With no positive influences for them to look up to, they follow and embrace the negativity that comes from the streets. Unfortunately, it’s a revolving cycle in the hood. Getting caught up in it is very easy, but the consequences that follow are severely hard.

This story is based in the era of the late ’80s and ’90s during the crack epidemic that plagued America and the effects it had on the Virgin Islands.

Kishawnie Henry aka Billy Blasta, was born and raised in the Virgin Islands. Growing up in the housing projects of Paul M. Pearson Gardens, aka the Ghettos, he became a product of his environment and was shot and paralyzed at the age of seventeen. Being removed from the physical aspects of the streets, he developed a passion for writing. With music being his first love, he wrote and produced several mixtapes and albums before deciding to explore his talent in writing a book.

Entertaining Book

This book is not for the avid reader that is looking for a book that has a warm story with great use of words. This books is a fictional story relating to real life experiences. If you are looking for a book that dives into real life experiences all the while keeping you interested, this is the book for you. Author did a great job breaking up the stories which forced you to continue reading to get to a conclusion to feed your mind with the question, "What happened next?" I would recommend you read this book with an open mind and not draw to pre-maturr conclusions by just reading the 1st two chapters. There is definitely great potential in the writer to create more fictional books.
