Publisher's Summary

What's a girl gotta do to get what she wants out of life? According to Ra'Keeyah Jackson, the answer is whatever it takes.

Ra'Keeyah has million-dollar dreams. She's determined to come up, and she won't stop until she does. Nothing is going to stop her from getting the hottest clothes, the finest men, and money to burn. Easily influenced by her conniving girls Shayna and Quiana, Ra'Keeyah resorts to shoplifting, stealing married men's credit cards, and passing bad checks to get what she wants. 

Ra'Keeyah is struggling and has sunk to an all-time low when she meets Brick. He's a savvy, street-smart hustler who will surely take her young heart for a ride and make her want to change. Will she be able to resist, though, when Shayna comes to her with an idea that is sure to keep their pockets swole? This idea could cost the girls a little more than they bargained for, along with teaching them that not everyone is to be tricked!

Horrible

This book chronicles a 16 years diary. Forty chapters of listening to the narrator sounding like they are reading a nursery. Save your money!

just ok

The reading was too slow so I kept losing interest. it took me about a week to get through it. There were some good moments but for the most part it was very predictable.

Entertaining drama filled book

This book is a prime example of nature versus nurture and how drugs change lives

Story was good, but...

The narrator made it hard to finish. Subpar editing and voice inflections. As far as the story, I feel that the story was not very imaginative. The writer used a whole lot of the same words and phrases throughout.
