Overview

Drama is no stranger to Tiara James. When it felt like the world had finally changed the hand that she’d been dealt, reality continued to creep up on her. With a mom on the verge of becoming an alcoholic and an alcoholic crack-addicted father who use to beat her mom in front of her, who could blame Tiara for finding a family on the streets.

Tiara’s loyalty to her friends was undeniable. The crew consisted of, Tiara, Tamika, Shavon, Renee, Ke Ke and Karen. They jumped, robbed and fought other girls who stood in their way. When trouble surfaced, the crew had no problems with getting their hands dirty. Tiara was faithful to her crew handling any drama that presented itself. But when jealousy get’s the best of friends, things continued to get ugly.

With an older brother Tre James wrapped deeply into the streets becoming a drug dealer at 13, their younger brother Sharod had no choice but to admire both Tre and Tiara’s lifestyle. Tragedy continued to hit home and Tiara’s life continued to go down hill. She lost people who she loved and trusted the most to death, jail or betrayal. From welfare, section 8, jail, drugs, abusive relationships and lies, Tiara’s future seems uncertain. Will she finally rise above the drama that meets her at every corner, or remain trapped in the jaws of the hood? Brace yourself as Tiara James takes you on a rollercoaster ride in her footsteps, in her hood, telling her story.

    A Chick's Hood Story

    Just finished reading this story. Though the book is only 106 pages the chapters are very long. Its a sad story about a family living in the poorest neighborhood of boston. And one girl's attempt to live a better life from the "hood". Sadly it does not have a happy ending, but they're cant always be one. The book is one you can't put down & you have to finish it! Great read.

    more from this reviewer

    A must read!

    This was my first time reading a book by this author, and i will tell you one thing it will not be my last!! This book was such a good read! It was a down to earth novel that people who grew up in the hood can relate to. This book takes you on a journey with the family and how they are trying to survive the everyday struggles of the hood. This book is filled with lies, betrayal, and some drama, and if your a crier beware because you might shed a few. So join in on this Hood Chick's journey as she attempts to find herself and become a woman, but you must read to find out what happens. Im off to read part 2! Keep doing a great job LaShonda DeVaughn!! Oh wait! Did i mentioned i enjoyed reading this book? Because i did!!
