Silver Spring, Maryland might not be your usual story location but to one girl, it’s where her entire story began.
Ebony Thompson is the recipient of a literary award for writing a story that highlighted her journey throughout her adolescent years in a suburban area outside of Washington DC.
As she takes us back through her written memories, we quickly learn that her adventures began as a young know-it-all teenager trapped between two lifestyles: focusing on her writing or being down for whatever.
However, with her five best friends tagging along for the ride, they help to make the journey much more exciting. They encourage her to stay focused on the prize even when they wind up in trouble at times but still Ebony takes a deaf ear willingly allowing herself to remain confined to the alter-ego lifestyle she hides beneath daily.
Once she gets on track to achieve her aspirations, Ebony soon finds that being able to follow her dreams and hold on to her friends may be easier said than done.
