Brenda is forced to pursue a vicious life of crime by her older black thug cousin, Shun, who gets her pregnant at the age of twelve. When Shun is shot, Brenda sees an opportunity to free herself from his sadistic clutches, but he tracks her down, promises he will end his life of crime and help care for their baby. Brenda believes Shun and turns away from the safety of her Social Worker. But as soon as Brenda gives birth, Shun leaves her to fend for herself in a cold, corrupt, callous environment.
Abused, hated and estranged from her mother and fatherless since the age of six, Brenda is unable to cope with the demands of the child. She dumps the baby in the trash, praying it will be found and hopes that, one day, after she earns enough money, she'll be able to find the baby and care for it herself.
Will Brenda achieve her seemingly hopeless aim to be reunited with her baby? Will her ignorance plunge her into the abyss of street life and lead her to drugs, prostitution, and death?

Von Mozar was raised on the Yardie gang-infested streets of Brixton, London.
In the 1990’s he was engulfed in acts of violence and death that debased and destroyed the minds of many who shared the same environment.
He escaped his destructive lifestyle by forcing himself to read, which in turn inspired him to write stories that people from his underprivileged background could engage with and relate to.
For two years, he self-studied creative writing. Then he went on to earn a Diploma in Literature and Creative Writing from The Open University.
Mozar began his writing career in 2002 and in 2004 completed his first novel, Ignorance Kills... He then followed up Sexfiend, Little Jamaica, and Mr. Bling.
Mozar sold over 10,000 paperback books independently in London until he temporarily paused the marketing and sales of his book to pursue a degree in Creative Writing at Kingston University. During his time there, he tutored a vulnerable inner-city youth to write and publish a creative memoir of gang life, Through My Eyes: The Spirit of a Prince.
Mozar graduated in July 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Creative Writing and a 1st Class Special Study in Narrative Techniques in Popular Fiction.
Since leaving university, Mozar has explored a different writing genre, Romantic Realism, which selectively recreates reality as it should or could be. This has led Mozar to develop a crime-thriller series, which is planned for publication in 2017.
