Publisher's Summary

Meet the Pierce family. Desmond Pierce, a hardworking man from the South, is determined to give his and wife and daughters a good life in Compton, California. Pearla Pierce is a sexy and seductive mother who plays wifey and devoted mother only when her husband is home. Then there’s Carmen, a promiscuous 17-year-old on a self-destructive path and jealous of her younger sister. Cashmere, a 13-year-old, struggles to hold her family together out of love for her father. 

When tragedy hits home, Carmen and Cashmere find themselves orphans living with their hateful aunt and having to resort to stripping and selling drugs to survive. Carmen drags Cashmere into a world of drugs, violence, and sex when she allows a ruthless pimp named Black to turn her out. Against her will, Cashmere is also forced to work for Black by prostituting herself for high-class ballers. 

Carmen’s jealousy toward her younger sister continues when she sees Black falling in love with Cashmere. Carmen’s need to destroy her sister sets off a chain of events that lands Cashmere in jail. Cashmere is left alone and broken, but with the hope that some way, somehow, she can be fixed.

Depressing and dark

I would not recommend this book and I’m glad it was free. The narrator did pretty good but the story was too sickening. If you are an upbeat person, empath or have been through a lot of tragedy, I wouldn’t recommend reading this.

Tough to read at times, but great story

This is an account of how many of our babies end up in predicaments due to circumstances so far out of their control..I had a lump in my throat a few times. Great story and I love Mishi!

Great story, terrible narration

Story held my attention from beginning to end. I couldn’t stop listening. But the narration was terrible! She should’ve pre read the book first or something because she used the wrong tone and emphasized the wrong words way too often. This should be redone with a better narrator and she needs to practice.

Superrr good!

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. There were some chapters that made me cringe because she described what was going on so vividly. It was good from beginning to end and i never wanted to pause to even sleep. Lol

Now i have to see what else the author has out there!

Pleasantly Surprised

Great story, I love the small details throughout the book it made it easier for me to imagine every scene. Mishi did an awesome job as a narrator! I didn’t have big expectations but it definitely pulled me in and made me a believer. Great job.
