In this shocking novel of a young girl alone on the streets, Donald Goines delves into yet another facet of the ghetto experience - the dark, despair-ridden world of a black girl's soul.
Sandra took to the streets when she was eight years old and tried to fight off the hunger pangs by shoplifting and moving into the profits of drug pushing. Then she met Chink, and with him she discovered love and affection...as well as rape and murder.

I have been a Donald Goines fan for decades. However, Black Girl Lost was a book I had slept on growing up in the 70's. Wow!!! I hate I missed it but, now I understand some things having gained more life experience.
Bahni Turpin's performance is wonderful She definitely captured the essence of the characters and interpreted scenes very well. Very moving performance of young love in a tragic background bent on surviving with each other no matter the odds.
The narrating was awesome. Audible always has a great reader. The title implied more drawn out drama and tragedy than there really was in the book. It could have used more
Even though it was predictable it was well worth the time to listen to it. I will go for it a third time as well, it's that good. I'm recommending this audio book to many friend as it will open some minds up to what can happen in others lives.
The storyline was retarded. In the beginning of the story I liked it, but as the story went on, it became very predictable and stupid. I mean the main characters were just dumb; everything moved so quickly. there was no type of mystery. The whole plot was dumb. I couldn't stop sucking my teeth and shaking my head at the non sense.
Yep I'm upset I wasted my money on this one.
This book is amazing as all of Donald 's books are. I just wish they had more of his writings. Three is just not enough. If you love urban fiction like I do this classic will satisfy for sure.
