Overview

Since she was a little girl, Tionna's on and off addicted mother taught her to get hers by any means necessary. Tionna's heart is as cold as a December chill, but she holds a warm place in it for Duhan, the father of her two sons, and her on-again-off-again boyfriend since they were teenagers. Duhan becomes her knight in shining armor until the government turns their dream into a nightmare. With Duhan behind bars and everything she loves seized she finds herself starting over in the same neighborhood she swore she'd never come back to.

With two kids, a man in prison and no back up plan, Tionna is once again living by her wits in order to maintain the lifestyle she'd become so accustomed to. Back in the thick of things with her best friends Gucci, Boots and Tracy, she finds herself rediscovering her old life and suddenly begins to wonder if she's really cut out to be a prisoner's wife.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In his ninth novel, K'Wan (Gangsta; Road Dawgz) continues his popular Hood Rat series, with yet more of what his readers expect: action, murder, betrayal, sex, more action, familiar faces and a few surprises. Readers are first introduced to Tionna, a single mom of two, desperate to recover her footing after her man gets arrested for his involvement in drug and gun dealing. Moving back to her old neighborhood in shame, Tionna devises a plan with her girlfriends—Gucci, Boots and Tracy—to con local record label mogul Don B. Meanwhile, Gucci meets and falls for Animal, a notorious criminal who's on the fence about going legitimate as a rapper. As their pursuits intertwine, Tionna and friends find much to learn about unintended consequences. Quick and entertaining, K'wan's latest captures a small slice of modern urban life with a great degree of credibility and finds in Animal his most conflicted, memorable and likable character yet. Unfortunately, the plot hinges on some implausible (and cheesy) developments, which may try readers' patience. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
Praise for K'wan:

“The big draw here is the electric prose, which is imbued with profane, comic lyricism."

Publishers Weekly on HOOD RAT

"One of hip-hop fiction's hottest authors. . .fans will appreciate many of the qualities that make K'wan a writer to check for: gritty settings, memorable dialogue and authentic action."

KING magazine on Street Dreams

“This gangsta romp is indisputably a page-turner.”

Library Journal on Eve

    Pretty Good

    This book was good. It was not the BEST of the "HoodRat Novels" but it was good. The order I believe is "HoodRat" "Still Hood" "Section 8" then "Welfare Wifeys"... Section 8 was a pretty good book with just enough drama to keep your attention! Also not to mention there were some situations that didnt end well and one that ended great. All i can say is DO NOT get attatched to the characters because those of you who have read other K'WAN books will know the characters do not stick around very long which is the case in this book. Happy Readings!

    I thought this book was just okay. This book was a little boring

    I thought this book was just okay. This book was a little boring compared to some of the other book
    I read by K'wan and didn't really pick up until the end. I still love this author and will continue reading 
    more of his books, but this one just wasn't one of my favorites.

    Give it a chance....Great read

    This book was a great read....it starts off kinda slow and too many chracters....but give it a chance they all come into play together...I am one of those readers where it has to keep my attention within the first three chapters and it did....it was a diffrent type of writing style than im use to...and I love it.

    Loved it!

    When i first started reading this one, i was straddling the fence, only because it prove to be far more complex then the stree-lit i usually read., It turned out to be a great read after all , which is why it got a five star rating from me.
