The female role in a street gang. Eye Opener. Engrossing story
This is an extremely powerful novel that deals with obsession--in relationships, drugs, even with concept of honor. I don't believe I do the novel justice, but highly recommend women read this. It is about women and, if we let it be, our relationship with just about everything in this world--"property of."
HAVING READ AND LOVED SO MUCH OF ALICE HOFFMAN, I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT I WAS VERY DISAPOINTED IN THIS BOOK. I ACTUALLY HAD TO FORCE MYSELF TO CONTINUE READING IT. IN THE END, I'M GLAD I DID, BECAUSE IT DID PICK UP A BIT. I SIMPLY FOUND I COULD NOT RELATE TO ANY OF THE CHARACTERS. I'M GLAD IT WAS NOT THE FIRST BOOK OF HERS THAT I READ...I MAY NOT HAVE READ ANY FURTHER ONES AND MISSED OUT ON A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL AUTHOR.
i really enjoyed this book and am soooo glad my kids didn't go this way in life
