Jazmin Shelby knows how to fight -- after all, she's always had to. Her dad died a couple of years back, and now that her mom's in the hospital, it's just her and her sister, CeCe. But that's okay by Jazmin. She's got her stoop on Amsterdam Avenue, where she can keep an eye on all the neighborhood action. She's got her friends Sophie and Destinee to keep her laughing. And most of all, she's got her notebook, filled to the brim with poetry, laughter, and her own irrepressible views on life, Harlem, and just about everything else.
