Publisher's Summary

Essence best-selling author J. M. Benjamin brings listeners Memoirs of an Accidental Hustler, about one man's journey of life and survival.

Moving from a brownstone in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, to a housing project in the small town of Plainfield, New Jersey, young Kamil is exposed to another world and a different breed of people. Bonded by the pain caused by their absentee fathers, Kamil and his brother befriend a group of boys from the neighborhood, forming an unbreakable bond. The boys vow not to travel down the same road as their dads, making a pact to stay in school and out of the streets. When Kamil discovers the allure of the opposite sex, a childhood crush develops into something much more.

Walk with Kamil as he transitions from childhood to young adulthood and struggles with the very things his mother tried so hard to prevent him and his brother from embracing. What starts out as a game and a means of survival ultimately ends up serious and addictive.

    "Heartbreak America"

    The story was well read, informative and sad. It showed the life too many black men are forced live.

    I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.

    "Reflections"

    This is a good story. The narrator was good and kept me engaged. The character went through alot of what young men go through now in unfortunate circumstances but if they would stop and think about their actions before making the next move we would have alot more if our young men alive, free and productive in society.

    "Don't Pass This Book Up/By!!!! "

    Ms. Kela, Flint, MI

    I loved listening to this book!!! It's so many memorable moments throughout this book. The struggle to rags to riches and the cost one must pay (in the urban community). I choose this book because of the narrator (Dylan Ford), who didn't disappoint. He did a great job, bring this book to life. This is truly one for the books and I highly recommend this book!! Great job J.M. Benjamin and Dylan Ford!!
