Summary
"Lost to the streets... lost Forever. This is the story of Chasity. Born into poverty to an "addict" mother who was eventually claimed by her addiction to drugs. Chasity is then taken in by her Grandmother the only person to ever really love Chasity like her own. But her sudden passing would leave Chasity alone, yet again. Chasity's uncle would then step forward. Offering to take her in. An arrangement that quickly dissolves when Chasity begins to blossom. As her body changes her uncle begins to see her as more than just a "niece." A repulsed Chasity refuses his advances. Which leads to him throwing her out. On her own once more Chasity meets a handsome young Hustler named Hakeem. He treats Chasity like a queen and as their relationship deepens he eventually becomes her "first." Unfortunately the law catches up with her beau and with him gone so are her means of financial support. Chasity tries her hand at stripping for awhile but her "minor" status makes it a brief stint. Again, lacking funds Chasity soon meets some new friends who introduce her to a "trafficker" named Nasty. This leads to Chasity and the gang becoming players in the Florida drug trade. A move which quickly opens a MAJOR new revenue stream for her. The new "job" is paying dividends and Chasity has gotten a taste of "the life" once more. Only this time she'll make sure it's "permanent"" --
