BUY THIS BOOK AND BUY IT NOW!!! GREAT READ. VERY INTERESTING.
I gave this book a 5 because it was so powerful. This girl went through alot. Dealing with her father being paralyzed, her mother
leaving them, her and she sister selling crack and there bodies. Her being raped, her dad dying, she killing her sister, and going to jail. Its suprizing to me that she could smile at the end and thats what gives this book a 5. Now saying that i have to say that if it wasnt a happy ending the wouldve still been a 4 or 4.5!!!
