Michelle used to be known as Princess P, the daughter of a gang king and queen, destined to lead the Snake Brothers one day. But her father is dead, her mother's in jail, and she has started a new life as a track star and successful student. Until some of the boyz find her and kidnap her and her best friend, Kiki, as leverage. Now she must choose between the good girl she wants to be, and the bad girl she was born to be.

I had trust issues with this book, and it was probably just me. It's written heavily in South L.A. Hispanic street slang, and it might be completely authentic. Or not. I'm from Minnesota, how should I know? And not knowing really bothered me for some reason.
