The most lethal ride-or-die women in Memphis now run their gangs and the streets. But the aftermath of an all-out war means merciless new enemies, time-bomb secrets. . .and one chance to take it all. . .

Bullets have no names and collateral damage is the game as the women of the Dirty South push to secure total control. Vice Lord chief Lucifer goes after the upstart Crippettes gang one by one--but locking down her power will put everything she lives to protect at risk. Ta'Shara straps on her training wheels to prove she can ride with the best of the Flowers--but does this good-girl-gone-bad really have what it takes to survive? And as Queen G LeShelle viciously body-drops to keep her bloody secrets buried, her husband Python may be the one person that can put her in check. Now these boss divas will go head-to-head for complete domination--because in the end only one can rule. . .

Praise for De'nesha Diamond

"Diamond's ear for street talk comes across loud and clear. . .a violent and profane tale. . . ." --Library Journal (starred review) on Hustlin' Divas

"If you want gritty, down and dirty, and raw, Street Divas is the book for you." --Urban Reviews

Discussion Questions

1. Lucifer was on a murderous rampage to avenge the death of her brother. Do you think that she took things too far?

2. Do you think Captain Hydeya Hawkins was promoted because she was qualified for the job or that the city believed that she would be easy to manipulate?

3. Qiana is clearly in over her head. Do you think that it was a wise idea to have kept the baby? Why do you think she really kept the child?

4. Python’s mysterious cousin, Diesel, seems to be slinking around the edges and even frightens his Aunt Peaches. Do you think he has a hidden agenda or do you believe he really has Python’s back?

5. Do you think Shariffa’s actions are more about taking over the street game or a vendetta against the Gangster Disciples?

6. Mason has returned from the dead. Had he not, do you think that Lucifer would have been able to maintain her position? Do you think that Profit would’ve challenged her for the throne?

7. Ta’Shara’s safe world has been turned upside down. Now that she’s been accepted into the Flowers, do you think that she’ll find the courage to get out or succumb to the gang life?

8. Do you think that LeShelle’s attraction to Diesel is because of his power, or is it sexual?

9. Momma Peaches tried to turn her life around, but she doesn’t seem to be able to catch a break. Do you think that she did the right thing in trying to bring the brothers together?
