TODAY'S FEATURED AUTHOR -- FON JAMES
Faith Walker, Gavin Roberts, Chrissy Jackson and Remi Aguilar are all seniors who attend historically Black, Jackson State University , where the four are members of the school's well-known marching band. It's their last year in college and as the fall semester begins, the lives of these four friends take an unexpected turn when two of the friends accidentally sleep together. While temptations of sex and alcohol are as common as textbooks and pencils for these college students, this little sex incident rocks the core of their friendship bond and slowly begins to unravel the once tightly-woven group. Will the friendship between these four outlast the outcome of this one-night stand?
MEANWHILE ON THE CAMPUS YARD -- Faith has once-again renewed her celibate lifestyle. For the last three years she's been going back and forth on her commitment to no sex, all in the name of keeping her man satisfied and happy. Even though she's been down this "commitment to no sex" road before after enduring a life changing incident freshman year, she's not letting anything further compromise her promise to God and to herself. But as the fall semester begins, her renewed celibacy goal gets abruptly interrupted when she experiences an unexpected betrayal that makes her question if she's really doing the right thing by not giving up the goods anymore. To make matters worse, a big family secret is revealed that leaves Faith clinging to the only stable thing in her life. her faith in God.
STEP INTO THE LIVES OF FAITH, Gaven, Chrissy, and Remi to see how temptation, betrayal, faith and forgiveness all play and integral role in the journey to growing closer to God.
