Renowned hip-hop artist, political activist, and bestselling author of Life After Death brings the streets of New York to life in a powerful and utterly unforgettable first novel.
I came busting into the world during one of New York's worst snowstorms, so my mother named me Winter. Ghetto-born, Winter is the young, wealthy daughter of a prominent Brooklyn drug-dealing family. Quick-witted, sexy, and business-minded, she knows and loves the streets like the curves of her own body. But when a cold Winter wind blows her life in a direction she doesn't want to go, her street smarts and seductive skills are put to the test of a lifetime. Unwilling to lose, this ghetto girl will do anything to stay on top.
Featuring a Special Collector's Edition Reader's Guide--including an author Q&A, detailed character analyses, and the author's own remarks about the meaning of her story.
