Publisher's Summary

Anna J. is back with a riveting novel depicting the devastation caused by cocaine use in a Southwest Philadelphia community.

You have to use what you got to get what you want. For Journey Clayton, this statement rings more than true as she struggles under the weight of her mother’s cocaine addiction. She learns from a very young age that family doesn’t offer as much help as she hoped they would. It’s not until she befriends Khalid, the son of a neighborhood drug dealer, who is trying to stay above the struggle himself, that she starts to believe there might just be hope...even for little girls in the ghetto.

Snow White is a story of survival, betrayal, strength, and courage. It will pull you in from the very beginning and won’t let you go until the last word. As seen through the eyes of a young girl coming of age, observe how Journey struggles to survive amidst the deception, violence, and murder that surround her.

Horrible Ending !

please tell me part 2 is already out?? please don't let this book end like this??? The uncle should have been ashamed of himself. I was waiting for someone to kill him & the friends (especially Bunz).

pointless novel

This took me over a week to listen to and finish, I was so annoyed and frustrated!!! I am not familiar with this author so I won't judge her entire writing style by this one book. The characters are very under developed, there was no cheering for the underdog because we were giving absolutely nothing to cheer for. It was just a simple and very sad depiction of day to day for everyone in the book. There was no plot, it was just blaaahhhh....As for the main two characters who I would have like to cheer for, it was just "life's a bit@#, and then you die..." because that is exactly how this story went. It was just awful. Not awful as in a sad ending that leaves you thinking, oh no..., the WHOLE book was just DUMB and a waste of a credit.

Journey and Khalid

This book pulls you in right away. The life of Journey will break your heart😢. I almost stopped listening because the Uncle Vince was molesting her at 9 years old. I truly hate books that molest children. I am a nurse and I have worked with children, that had been abused. I do realize this is a book. But I kept listening hoping things would turn around for poor little Journey😢. The book jumped to 5 years and the only good in her life is her best friend Khalid. His life starts to all apart, his mother becomes addicted to shooting up. His father Joey. Is a hired hit man. He is the best dad he can be, he truly loves his son. The book truly sucks you in because you keep waiting on things to get better. Then the end comes and the end is awful. There is one way out for Journey and Khalid 😭.
