Publisher's Summary

Desire Jones is a young, hot-to-trot teen who lives life on the edge. Abandoned by her mother, she yearns for love and attention. Her uncle shelters her, but life is impossible to bear with his abusive wife. 

To make things worse, she gets involved with Malik, who shatters her hope and trust by leaving her pregnant and infected with HIV. Hurt and hardened, she decides to do the unspeakable - purposely infect people with her disease. Of course, no one knows of her intent, not even her best friend Jennifer, who unwittingly helps Desire find her victims. 

Will Desire realize the error of her ways before it’s too late? 

Tia Hines delivers a powerful message in this cautionary tale full of action and drama.

Recommended review for "That Girl Is Poison"

“That girl is poison” is a funny but sad book. You should always be nice to everyone. Always treat others like the way you want to be treated. This little girl in this book was treated horribly wrong since the fifth grade. I hate that her mother promised her a graduation surprise and never came back for her. Her mother left in the care of her aunt and uncle. Desire never felt loved and almost always left loney. It was a terrible memory for me when Desire lost her bestfriend Greg. He turned out to be her real brother. Greg always warned Her to stay away from Malik but Desire did not listen. Desire contracted “H.I.V” through unprotected sex. Desire was horrified like anyone would be of the deadly virus which turns into full blown “A.I.D.S”. Desire was just so young. This girl took more ass whippings from her mean ass aunt. This child was puniDesired for breathing too loud. My favorite part was when Desire went back for her little baby. Desire was so angry Desire started passing this deadly virus to everyone that Desire could infect including all of those who mistreated her in her life. I hated that Desire went crazy in the end of the book. I love this book and I approve this book for reading on audible.com

Depressing and heart wrenching.Had me stressed out

OMG this whole thing is crazy. The way it's written definitely seems like this terrible roller coaster of a story could be real, but boy oh boy is it depressing. Desire is kicked standing and lying down and she makes terrible decisions on top of the terrible treatment she experiences. Ooooh wee. I don't even know what else to say about this book except that I'll be reading more books by this author...after I have a drink. LOL

Ummmm

I like the narrator very believable.... I hate that there was a lot of ignorance in the book. However, I do know that it’s relevant in this day and age. Good book, sad story but good book
