The determination Shy McGee has to protect her family mirrors that of a mama bear protecting her cubs. When the police kill her husband, Melvin, in the presence of their young son, Shy becomes a single mother trying to raise boys to men. At seventeen, Prince is young, angry and focused on claiming his birthright and reign as king of the hustle on the streets of Youngstown, Ohio. Shy has his back.
Cherise and Shy are best friends. The only life lesson Cherise has taught her son Raequan is how to run hustles to get what he wants out of life. Cherise and Raequan grow tired of watching the McGee family prosper while they remain at a stand still.
       When Prince and his identical twin brother Jayden come under gunfire and the wrong brother takes the hit, Shy fights to find out who the mastermind behind the incident was. When Shy learns of the deceit perpetrated on her twins, it will be discovered just how far Shy is willing to go to protect her Young Minded Hustler in training.

My oldest son gave me the idea for this story. He wanted to read a tale about young men battling between street life and living right. I thought, why not use our relationship as the foundation of Young-Minded Hustler. Young-Minded Hustler tells the story of a single mother trying to raise boys to men after their father is murdered. The main character, Shy, is every single mother rearing a male child. Shy is every woman trying to do right, be an example for her children, sacrificing her own life without batting an an.
