The last short story was the best, the others were mediocre for me but nonetheless interesting.
Girls From Da Hood

I give this book 3 1/2 stars. It's a step up from okay (3 stars) but not quite I like it material (4 stars). Don't know what I was expecting, but maybe something a little more based on their previous work.

Nikki Turner - Unique is the stereotypical drug dealer's girlfriend. All she does is shop and spend his money. When her boyfriend Took has to do a bid, Unique is up the creek without a paddle. Does she get a job and try to better herself? No, of course not! It's on to the next

Loved it, Unique was a hot ass mess who went way too far with her shit for the sake of the dollar and I'm home she thought she got Brittany, she needed up getting got, Nina has to make some decisions and she will probably have to suffer consequences for them too, Anyeh may have bit off more than she can chew, while her intentions was to bring Diablo down but never intended to fall for him at the same time, All three authors did a good job
its a very interesting book talking about young girls going threw the obstacles in everyday life

I just finished this book about a week ago. This is a book containing 4 stories of woman on their hustles. I thought this was very entertaining. One in perticular I found a bit disturbing but entertaining none the less.

This book was very interesting. It gave explict details about two girls that lived in the hood. I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in books that give stories that happen in "the hood".
