Moving on from the trenches of harassment and peer pressure, Eric continues his mission to figure out what life is all about. The traps laid in the hood for inner-city adolescents are real. The late 80’s are in effect. Crack, HIV, corruption, and urban warfare are epitomizing the population. What should he do? How does hip-hop play a role? Will the 90’s be better or worse? Questions that only he can answer and does so well in this latest volume.

An essay entitled "Why do you want to come to America?". I feel that it's a topic that should be addressed in the positive and negative light of current events.
