Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you felt like you were dying and the only thing that could save you was the very thing that was killing you?

Persia Chandler doesn't know the meaning of the world struggle. After the arrest of her notorious father, she is whisked away from Harlem, the only place she has ever called home, to be raised in an affluent neighborhood in Long Island City. Her mother and stepfather shower her with the best that life has to offer. During her senior year in high school, she convinces her parents to let her transfer from Catholic school to attend public school. That is the start of her problems - but it's hardly the end. In her new school, Persia is reunited with the friends she was forced to move away from and starts to drift further and further from the life her mother and stepfather have built for her. To the sheltered Persia, the Harlem underworld is like one big adventure. Things promise to get even more interesting when she starts dating a dealer named Chucky. He introduces her to his world of sex, money, and drugs, dragging Persia along with him on a long and bitter ride into the bowels of addiction.

    Story
    "Stupidity and priviledge"
    Where does The Fix rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was one of the best due to the narrator's abilities to hold your interest.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It would give Persia more depth in character; she seems very naive.


    Have you listened to any of Patricia Floyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Her performance is extraordinary; keeps you interested in the book


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    the attitude of persia which was very hard to understand.

    "Good story"

    As always Kwan delivers a great story. I'm so sick of Chucky. The only complaint is the narrator I love Cary Hite doing Kwan books. But other than that this is a must read. I was glad True made an appearance I wonder where Karyn at? I'm bout to start pt 2

    "It was an Ok story."

    I've read better stories by this author. I love this author. But the story didn't build up the characters as his other books have.

    Interesting. I could've finished the book in one day, instead I paced myself and enjoyed it over several days.
