What It Do! by Natalya LaBauve-Williams

This is an exciting romance about a girl named Vicki whose biological mother shows up suddenly and wants Vicki to spend time with her. She has to leave her beautiful town and friends behind for the summer to live in Faye's (her mother) rough neighborhood that's filled with gangsters and drug dealers. She has to adjust to the new life and learn how to handle her problems. The main problem is that Vicki falls in love with a street guy who might just be a drug dealer. Can a drug dealer be the right guy for Vicki?

You will love Vicki, who is patient and loving. At first she's not too sure about going with her mother, but she soon learns to like the alternative lifestyle. You understand how Vicki feels through all her love difficulties with Terrence--and you find out that not all of the street guys are bad. Even some of the drug dealers aren't such bad guys, except of course for their chosen profession. Vicki's love problems and finding out about the real world will keep you from putting the book down.
