Publisher's Summary

Urban Books' popular Girls from da Hood series is back, bringing listeners more dramatic tales about the lives of some tough, resourceful women who can hold their own when things get rough on the streets.

Gabby Davenport spent the first 15 years of her life in the suburbs, living a privileged and sheltered existence. When her mother dies unexpectedly, she is forced to move from her middle class neighborhood into Cumberland Projects in Brooklyn. Gabby's life will never be the same.

Mika, the queen bee of the projects, doesn't appreciate the arrival of this private-school good girl. Mika and her posse are on a mission to make Gabby's life miserable, and things only get worse when Mika's "friend with benefits" B-Waite decides he wants to make Gabby his girl. Mika is ready to go to war to win back her man, and she doesn't care who she has to take down in the process. 

Keisha, Shawna, and LaRhonda are best friends forever, as the saying goes. Nothing will tear apart this tight trio - or so they think. When Keisha steps out of her box to become more of her own person, tension builds among the girls. In the eyes of her trusted friends, her lifestyle has become questionable. What happens when her secrets and desires are revealed?

Shawna's life is just starting to look up. She's been hired at a major record label, and she's making enough money to move out of the projects for good. When her good news is met by fake smiles, Shawna gets a new perspective on how her girls really feel. 

LaRhonda sees each of her friends moving up while she's still struggling in the confines of the ghetto. After she gives birth to her second child by the age of 18, she feels like her dreams are out of reach. Her growing jealousy isn't easy to hide. What will happen when her misery wants company?

Boring

After the first 3 books I have been disappointed but I keep reading thinking it will go back to keeping us entertained. I get it these girls are from the hood but do all of them have to be clueless airheads.

Thank you.

Thank you, for writing a book where in the end the girls from da hood win. Because we need to hear that to every once in a while story. Every story form da hood is not a tragedy. When you come from the hood is just hard. Some of us living it, some of us want. Some if us make it out, Some of us don't but we all gotta find a happy ending somewhere.

Loved, Loved, Loved

These short stories were very well written, intriguing and gave me the closure I needed. Some of the others left me wanting more and disappointed but this book was gratifying.. good job!

Most of the girls from the good books are really good .. BUT the story line for this one was really weak ... what a waste
