When Shanika gets the opportunity to work for a PR firm in New York, she finds that everyone assumes she is white; she also notices that being white has it advantages, from getting respect at work to getting picked up by a cab when other African-Americans are passed by.

There's also Miss Jackie, the middle-aged back-stabbing gossip; Vincent, the former bank robber turned scam artist; Mrs. Harris, the elderly neighborhood fence; and high-school honor student, Ricky--who aspires to be one of the scramblers on the corner, hawking crack to passers-by. When one of the residents kills herself and two of her children, the tenants rally together and vow to take care of remaining child. But that's the just the beginning of the tragedy that the residents of Ida B. will have to deal with. A shocking crime occurs in the building and everyone becomes suspect--and with accusations flying, the tight community of Ida B. begins to collapse"--p. [4] of cover
