Review: Black Girl Lost

User Review  - L'oreal Jackson - Goodreads

This is the first book that I've ever read for leisure and is yet still my first love. It grabbed me by the hand and sucked me in. Black Girl Lost is a page turner and one growing up in "the hood" like myself could certainly relate or knew someone that fit this description. LOVE IT! Read full review

About the author (1973)

Donald Goines (1936 1974) was a career criminal and addict who took up writing during one of his seven prison sentences. Between 1969 and 1974, he published sixteen novels, which are now recognized as almost unbearably authentic portraits of the roughest aspects of the black experience.
