A young black man will do what it takes to get his one-in-a-million happy ending in this young adult novel full of big parties and bigger ambitions.

Blue Reynolds has it all: money, brains, style, charisma, and the hunger to be more than what his parents have planned for him. He’s a dreamer on a mission to become the world’s next music business mogul. But for now, he’ll settle for being the youngest, hottest party promoter around...and the man on the arm of the fly and sassy Jade Taylor.

Collin Andrews is Blue’s best friend, and the order to Blue’s madness. Blue dreams up the ideas and Collin figures out how to make them happen; together, they make a powerhouse team that’s ready to blow the roof off the music game!

Coming up is never easy. These two dreamers will have to put everything on the line and do whatever it takes to succeed. It’s the new American dream, and the sky’s the limit. All they need is one shot.
