Hello, my name is Cashai Pier Paid. This book is about the strengths and struggles in my life as a hood wife. A real hood wife is a mother first, a housekeeper, and a hustler. I think of myself as a husband and wife because in this life, I have had to play both parts in order to survive the streets. I have been a hood wife for fourteen years in two different marriages. Reading along, you will read that there have been three men in my life over a twenty-five-year period. I am either known to be one's baby mother, ex-wife, or wife in the streets. In this book, I will be talking about what's happening now all the way back through my experiences in the streets just trying to survive without getting killed or going to jail for a long period of time trying to defend myself.

About the Author
Growing up, one of Cashai Pier Paid’s guardians said that when she was born, the doctor shaved her hair off and stuck needles in her head in order for her to live. She is probably the only human being alive with a two-page birth certificate. She was born to a teenage mom in the 1970s (who, at the time she got pregnant with the author, already had a 3-month-old baby). Paid started her street life at the age of 14 because of her guardian’s drug abuse and her having to be a mother to feed her younger siblings.
