Funny, passionate, and straight from the soul, Vera Wright-Turner thinks she has it all under control, until she meets and greets herself. Born on the flip side of the hustler's game, she is the child of a fifteen-year-old drug addict who placed her in a trash dump with a note that read: Please forgive me. My mother's only fifteen. Well, that is of little consolation to Vera as she lives her gold-diggin' life full speed ahead. Then she meets Taj, a real man who challenges her to face her demons and give love a chance. Everything comes to a crashing halt when she realizes that she can run, but she can't hide. Will she slow down and make peace with her past--and her mother--before she loses her chance at happiness?

Ten years after it was first published, TuShonda Whitaker's Flip Side of the Game will still ring true for anyone who's ever wanted to forget a painful past, and anyone who's simply wanted to feel loved. Readers will find themselves laughing out loud at times, crying at others, and ultimately, rooting for the unforgettable Vera Wright-Turner.
