Leaving the island of Jamaica as an infant with her parents, the only home that Iyana Campbell knows is the United States of America. At the age of sixteen, not only does Iyana lose both of her parents, she meets a law student named Bradley. Bradley has taken a caring interest in her and promises to pick up the pieces of her past tragedies. Now in her third year in college and engaged to a powerhouse attorney, Iyana feels that she has met her knight in shining armor. However, one 4th of July, Iyana is set up on a drug charge. Iyana realizes that Florida is home to her, and according to immigration law, she is deported back to Jamaica: a culture she has never known. Iyana is forced to stay with an Aunt she never knew and live in poor conditions. Determined to obtain some sense of normalcy, she tries to finish her education and enroll in the University of the West Indies. With no loans or financial aid, she must find another way to make money to pay for school and other necessities. Now at the end of her rope, Iyana meets another American deportee, Phe Phe who helps her get into school and teaches her the ropes on how to make it on the streets of Jamaica, as a Dance Hall Queen. Phe Phe is reluctant of letting Iyana know too much about her life, but soon the two become best friends. Phe Phe introduces Iyana to a lawyer Marlon that works to get her deportation overturned and help her discover the beauty that Jamaica has to offer. From the Pen of Ni'cola comes a tantalizing tail of lies and deceit woven into the exotic life of a dance hall queen. The island of Jamaica has many secrets and taboo to offer. Will Iyana naivety cause her to be overtaken by all the deceit or will her Pum Pum bring her into the light?
