An insight into the crazy live of one of the hoods baddest female hustler. The story of fiction “Girls from Da Hood” was written by Nikki Turner, Chunichi, and Roy Glenn.
The setting of the short story written by NIkki Turner was Richmond, the streets and the ghettos where people were hitting licks to pay off the bills and debt, and where others were addicted to drugs trying to find their way to their next fix. The main characters of the story are Unique and her boyfriend Took. Took was one of th

This book is an experience, but one worth undertaking for sheer humor. It is iconic in its cheesiness and I do not regret the less-than-half a day I spent reading it.

Good read. I was under the impression this was one story instead of 3 in one book.
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

This book in my opinion was pretty good . I gave it 3 stars because it was kind of remedial to me ..
Unique was a little hoodrat who went around fuckingg multiple men to make ends meet after her dude got locked up .
Nina: She was accompanied by her drug dealing high school love who ended up getting locked up after killing a cop . So he convinces her to sell drugs and she thinks she has the right people around her but she ends up learning differently , she decided to fuck with other men emotions &a

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

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".

After Nikki Turner read The Coldest Winter Ever by Sistah Souljah she was dismayed that there weren't other books like it. "I wanted to write the kinds of books I wanted to read," said the bestselling author, whose 2002 debut novel, A Hustler's Wife, would go on to sell more than a few 100,000 copies.
While Nikki Turner's first two novels were published by a small publishing house in the Midwest, i
