I did not think that this was terrifically well written. It was unfortunate because I was looking forward to hearing more from the female perspective. ( )

This book provides a first person insight into an area of gangs that is frequently overlooked by society. Female gang members are typically viewed only as associates since not many rise to the level of power and trust attained by Lady Q. This is a good starting point for those who want a broader understanding of gangs or who focus on female gang members. ( )

For my Princess/ I love you and I'm sorry that I put you through so much./ If my story saves one kid's life, it was all worth it.
First words
During my time as a gang member on the streets of the Humboldt Park neighborhood in Chicago, I always wondered what made girls get involved in drugs, sex and violence.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

This raw and powerful memoir is not only of one woman's struggle to survive the streets but also of her ascent to the top ranks of the new Mafia, where the only people more dangerous than rival gangs were members of her own.
