It's not until she befriends Khalid, the son of a neighborhood drug dealer, who is trying to stay above the struggle himself, that she starts to believe there might just be hope . . . even for little girls in the ghetto.

Snow White is a story of survival, betrayal, strength, and courage. It will pull you in from the very beginning and won't let you go until the last page. As seen through the eyes of a young girl coming of age, observe how Journey struggles to survive amidst the deception, violence, and murder that surround her.

    Story Of Life

    Snow White was one of the best books i ever read. I would recommend this books to anyone because it tells a story of things that really go on in the life of young kids/teens. When i read the first chapter it brung tears to my eyes and it showed how brave Journey was. My favorite part was when Journey and Kahlid first made love it was too sweet that had me smiling from ear to ear. THe part I hated was when Kahlid and Journey got shot, I didnt want the story to end right there. The on e question I had about this book was did Journey die at the end or did they save her I was really confused.

    Great Read

    This was a great read. From page 1, I didn't want to put it down, but I had to force myself to slow down so I could enjoy the book. There was never a dull moment. The end definitely left me hanging and I'm hoping there is a sequel. There was also one small part that wasn't elaborated on. All in all, I still thought it was a really good book.

    UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

    I AM A BIG FAN OF ANNA J. I LOVE HER WRITING STYLE. COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF MY WOMAN HIS WIFE, BUT COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT AFTERMATH. WITH THAT SAID THIS BOOK TOOK OFF LIKE A BULLET FOR ME. IT HAD ME GLUED TO MY SEAT TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS NEXT FOR JOURNEY CLAYTON. WITH AN UNCLE LIKE VINNY JOURNEY DID NOT NEED ANY ENEMIES THATS FOR SURE. HOW COULD ANY UNCLE IN HIS RIGHT MIND ABUSE HIS NEICE IN THAT MANNER? AND STUFF LIKE THAT REALLY IS HAPPENING THAT'S WHAT'S SICK. IS THERE A SEQUEL? BECAUSE THE ENDING OF THIS STORY IS TWISTED. WHAT REALLY HAPPENS? WHO SHOT WHO? ALL OF THAT READING TO ME FOR NOTHING, THERE WAS NO CLOSURE FOR ME AT THE END.

    I don't know if I was disappointed with the ending or just shock

    I don't know if I was disappointed with the ending or just shocked that things ended so abruptly. I really hope that there's a sequel to this one because I was rooting for Journey from the beginning, and even more for her and Khalid to make it up out of that neighborhood and to make something of themselves. From her creepy uncle Vince who had no love for her whatsoever to juggling school and all her extracurricular activities, Journey was definitely dealt a tough hand in life and I was rooting for her to make something of her life and prove all the naysayers wrong.

    Didn't like it!

    This was our read for our bookclub last month. It was an OK read! I didn't like the ending. It left us hanging, but it didn't seem like there would be a second book the way the author left it. Although it was an compelling story of triumph it still ended in tragedy and I just didn't like it. I was rooting for the main characters only for them to be left in an "unknown" status!!!!!!! Uuugghhh
