The White House is based on true events, reimagining the dark chronicles of a notorious drug kingpin’s death, and the unfortunate events that followed.

The young heroine Draya lives paycheck to paycheck, laboring as a maid in a luxurious white house. One day, in the course of performing her duties, she is presented with an irresistible opportunity for a quick—and risky—payday. What unfolds in the white house changes the course of her life. Kidnapping, murder, and mayhem lead her—and the reader—through a harrowing and twisting plot to an explosive ending that no one sees coming. Look through the eyes of this young woman and glimpse how a life can forever be altered due to an unfortunate series of events—all touched off in a legendary white house.

My Review:
Great book. It is everything the summary states. Full of twists and turns. The main message of the book is that sooner or later karma will come back to settle things so think carefully about the decisions you make. It's good for those you love street lit. But this is not full of the typical street lit themes. There is a clear direction that this novel takes and the usually drama is avoided as it wouldn't have help this story plot. Also this is a short book. A week at the longest. two days average. One day for a fast reader.

Draya is struggling to raise her little brother June. she did a pretty good job too as he managed to get accepted into college. Unfortunately that good news is where things begin to go from bad to worse. Working 2 jobs she is barely keeping up with the rent never mind paying all the bills. June finished school and did well enough to get accepted but not enough for a scholarship. And in the pursuit to try get to a better place in life leads them into the rocky road of karma. So for those you enjoy getting over on people don't get upset when someone finally get over on you.
