Description: Renowned hip-hop artist, political activist, and bestselling author Sister Souljah brings the streets of New York to life in a powerful and utterly unforgettable first novel.
I came busting into the world during one of New York's worst snowstorms, so my mother named me Winter. Ghetto-born, Winter is the young, wealthy daughter of a prominent Brooklyn drug-dealing family. Quick-witted, sexy, and business-minded, she knows and loves the streets like the curves of her own body. But when a cold Winter wind blows her life in a direction she doesn't want to go, her street smarts and seductive sjkills are put to the test of a lifetime. Unwilling to lose, this ghetto girl will do anything to stay on top. (544 pgs)

Ashay says, "This book is still on my to do list and I can't wait to read it. Everyone I knowcan't believe I have not read it yet. Soon the TV version of the movie will be released and the thrill ride with the main character, Winter starts all over again. A certain classic in African American literature. Kudos to Sister Souljah! Mustread."
