Baker & Taylor
In the aftermath of her beloved older brother's murder, fifteen-year-old Angel witnesses her mother's deterioration into heroin addiction and turns to the streets of Brooklyn's worst neighborhoods in order to support her younger siblings. By the author of Diary of a Mistress. Original. 50,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster
A compelling story of desperation and temptation from the bestselling author of Secret Society and Diary of a Mistress.


After her big brother Curtis is gunned down in the streets of Brooklyn, Angel’s family crumbles. Her grief-stricken mother turns to heroin, leaving Angel to care for her younger brother and sister. And no one sees what her mother’s boyfriend does to Angel behind closed doors.

Desperate for the food and clothes they need, Angel looks for anything or anyone to help. But at fifteen, her options for legal employment are few. As a last resort, she turns to her brother’s best friend, Antoine, who gets her a job at a strip club. It’s only supposed to be for a while, and Angel is determined she won’t fall victim to the streets like her mother. But the fast life has its temptations—and a magical ability to make you forget.

Miasha’s deeply personal bestselling novel rings with authenticity and “sheds a bright light” (Danielle Santiago, #1 bestselling author of Grindin’ and Little Ghetto Girl ) in the dead-end world of addiction.
