G Child and Jessica became best friends in the park sandbox. But instead of graduating to Barbie dolls and gymnastics lessons, the two girls are initiated into their local gang--and into smoking, doing drugs and defending their turf.Excited, at first, to be part of a group that seemingly cares for her, G Child slowly sees the stakes escalating as allegiance andviolence define her life. And when the man she cares about abuses her, and then her best friend is killed, G Child knows she has to get out. But is it too late?A raw and unflinching look at gang life that exposes it for what it is--and isn't--this is a story that speaks powerfully and credibly to every teen who has ever thought about life in a gang. With its well-drawn characters and dialogue written in the language of the street, Innercity Girl Like Me will grip readers with its courage and authenticity.
