I opened this book and could not put it down...I didn't stop until my Kindle could slide no further...LOL! The story line was amazing, it was nothing I expected it to be. I feel in love with Kyana the main character and I felt her pain....I felt her joy, lived her tragedy and I respected her gangasta. I was literally blown away by the ending and I know you will be too. If you haven't already you need to get up on this one right here because it is a CERTIFIED BANGER!!!!

" What The Streets Made Me" is the debut novel by Author Jada Dior. It is the story of Kyana Thomas, a young girl living on the mean streets of Philadelphia. With a mother who is in and out of jail and a younger sister to look out for, Kyana is forced to grow up and quickly. Join her as she experiences life and all that it entails.

" What The Streets Made Me" was a good read. Poor Kyana just couldn't catch a break! I'm looking forward to reading part 2!
