(From the publisher):
Jordan is nobody’s slave.
At least that’s what he thinks when he joins a gang. But just as he’s about to start his future with the Cobras, his past calls him back – way back. Jordan is transported back in time to the nineteenth century, where he meets his ancestors and gets a bitter taste of what life was like for them as slaves on a cotton plantation. Now instead of dodging bullets from the guns of rival gang members, Jordan must live with the constant threat of the whip’s lash. Will he find a way to get back to the future, or will Jordan remain trapped in the past forever?
