This novel was inspired by the song "Champion" by Chipmunk;ft chris brown.
This story is told in a parallel style, starting in the mid 1800s in Virginia, during slave trades and harsh racism, telling the story of a young girl named Nia who later on plots to escape her master's plantation after certain circumstances push her to her limits. It tells the story of her patience and will to survive and strive for the freedom she rightfully deserves.
The second half of the story takes place in the late 1900s in Indiana, during high gang activity and equally high OD rates and drug abuse, telling the story of a young man named James who struggles with domestic circumstances that strain his will to fight for his dream of becoming a rap star. (I know it's cheesy but I promise the story is not corny...well not too corny)The story then hovers around Nia's progress and Jame's progress in each chapter
