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 so so

Entertaining and predictable; but, nothing spectacular. Great narrator though there were awkward pauses in the reading.

Loved the story

It was easy to to how the story would turn. Keyah got the happy ending she didn’t deserve. She was a spoil brat and liar. I loved me some Brick!!! I feel sorry for all child who endure hardships and pain because of crack attic parents.

Narrators voice ruins it

I could not finish the book bc the narrators voice is so fake. The way she tries to talk with sass one minutes then sounds like she’s reading to children the next minute. Her deflections and tone choice are wayyyy to distracting for me to continue. I’ll avoid her in my future searches and audiobook purchases.

Better 2nd Time Around

I purchased and read this book years ago. I remembered liking the story and let my young adult daughters read it. When I saw it on Audible I decided to listen to it again and I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed the story and realized I'd forgotten a lot of the details. This was a really good book with a bitter sweet ending. The narrator had a few hiccups but overall she did a good job. I would tell all young ladies coming of age to do themselves a favor and listen to or read this one.
