The first in an exciting series!
For seventeen-year-old Mya Bedford, life in a Detroit project is hard enough, but when her mother develops a drug habit, Mya has to take on raising her younger siblings. Too bad the only man who can teach her how to survive—her dad—is behind bars. For life. All he can tell her is that she’ll have to navigate the mean streets on her own terms. Mya’s not sure what that means—until her mother is seriously beaten by a notorious gang. Then it all becomes deadly clear.
Vowing revenge, Mya uses her feminine charm to begin a slew of successful robberies against the guilty crew. But the path she’s chosen gets complicated by a risky secret, a risky romance—and a scheme she might not come out of alive . . .
“Mya is an amazing character and despite some of her choices, I rooted for her all the way.”
—Mary Monroe, New York Times bestselling author
