This book is about a rising Spoken Word Poet and Jazz singer caught up in a whirlwind of chaos.
The year is 2000 just after the Y2K scare. The girls are back on the Beach and at the start of a successful career.
Roxie has been going to small Mom and Pop’s establishments performing at their open mic venues. With little experience as an entertainer or Publisher she needed help.
She needed to get her name circulating and her work into the right hands. She decided that she would finally accept the invitation for a date from a very handsome guy she met at one of her poetry recitals.
It was about seven when she left for the 9th Street Theater. Roxie and her date decided to meet at the front entrance at 8. When she pulled up he was standing there prompt and dressed to kill.
Parking her car she walked u to the door. He leaned in to give her a kiss on the cheek. The night moved along in ease until Chaos walked through the door and up to their table. That was the last date Roxie had before she dedicated her time to her future and her career as a successful entertainer.
Alexis had finally recovered from her last beating by her husband. Her divorce was final and she has regained some of her memory back. This last beating nearly killed her leaving her with amnesia. She has no memory of her childhood before the age of eleven. The doctors and the counselors explained to her why she was in the hospital. That she was a victim of domestic violence.
Doctor Marx said that had it not been for her landlord and a quick First Response Team she may not have survived. It was a good thing that she had on a Medical Alert bracelet or no one would have ever known who she was. That she bear a striking resemblance to a mental patient who broke out of the hospital in Rhode Island.
The doctors at the Medical University gave her a clean bill of health. She immediately drowned herself in her work; so much so, that she became the most sought after Public Relation Manager and Publicist in these times. Alexis decided to go to Myrtle Beach to reunite with her sister and to pay a visit to a Jazz singer and Spoken Word Entertainer that she had been hearing so much about.
Roxie was on stage next to show off her talents. She was the feature act for the Poetry On The Go group. They were sponsoring a contest that would leave the winner with a recording contract, publishing contract and a Concert at the Jasmine’s Jazz Dinner Restaurant.
She was on the last stanza of her poem when she mixed a little jazz in it that brought the crowd to their feet. In the opposite corner a group of people started dancing.
Alexis stepped in to see the crowd on their feet requesting and anchor from a familiar face standing on the stage. Her eyes met the entertainer and she realizes who she is.
She pushed her way through the crowd and to the front of the stage –eyes full of tears and she screamed; “It Is My Sister!”
Through the thunderous crowd Roxie looked down as if she heard the voice calling out to her. She dropped the microphone and jumped from the stage into the arms of her baby sister – Alexis.
