I'm going through a ghetto book phase. They all have the same basic set up... a high up dealer buying from Columbians, a sexy ex-hooker/stripper that's now the wifey, the right hand man and smaller runners. Diary of a Street Diva has the same premise but I have to give props for the ending. There are two twist that I didn't expect and for once I actually like the protagonist. Most of the time they are too ghetto and annoy me. I don't understand how these girls live with a man giving them $20,000 for shopping and they never think to put a little to the side. Stuff goes down and they always end up broke again and back in the strip clubs.

Remy's husband Cease is on trial for her murder and that of their unborn child. He finds her diary and begans to read her life story. The pov is mainly Remy's starting from her childhood in group homes, her rape, her strip club life, her first real love and loss, her jail time and then her second great love Cease. We get some sections with Cease's pov to fill in the blanks. It's not the best written book in the world but it's a page turner with a good ending.
