The saga continues....
The words, "I love you" are echoed a million times a minute around the world, but what is love? Is it about a spiritual connection? Is love a form of infatuation? Are the words "I love you" a source of manipulation?
In Ghetto Bastard: Book 2, twenty-six-year-old Malik Russell continues to discover the negative impact of love as he knows it.
Society dictates that when a child is born, his mother automatically loves him. That she would protect and die for him--maternal love. But some mothers abuse their children, use them for financial gain, or even kill them. Some mothers neglect their children, like in Malik's case.
If a child is raised with the absence of real love in his life, how does he learn to give it? How can he recognize it?
The road to discovering self-love--the greatest love of all--is a rough one for kids who were raised by the ghetto; love can be as elusive as food, shelter, and clothing. Malik had love, he had a good job, he was making it. But infatuation, temptation, and manipulation got in the way of it all. With no foundation to fall back on, he gave up everything "for the girl." And now he is paying the price--he's alone, jobless, homeless, and hungry.
What will he do now?
Follow Malik on his solo journey to find true love, the love of God, the love of a good woman, and the love of family.
And find out if it will be enough to keep him alive.
