Publisher's Summary

Anna J. is back with a riveting novel depicting the devastation caused by cocaine use in a Southwest Philadelphia community.

You have to use what you got to get what you want. For Journey Clayton, this statement rings more than true as she struggles under the weight of her mother’s cocaine addiction. She learns from a very young age that family doesn’t offer as much help as she hoped they would. 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 word. 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.

Journey and Khalid

This book pulls you in right away. The life of Journey will break your heart😢. I almost stopped listening because the Uncle Vince was molesting her at 9 years old. I truly hate books that molest children. I am a nurse and I have worked with children, that had been abused. I do realize this is a book. But I kept listening hoping things would turn around for poor little Journey😢. The book jumped to 5 years and the only good in her life is her best friend Khalid. His life starts to all apart, his mother becomes addicted to shooting up. His father Joey. Is a hired hit man. He is the best dad he can be, he truly loves his son. The book truly sucks you in because you keep waiting on things to get better. Then the end comes and the end is awful. There is one way out for Journey and Khalid 😭.

Horrible Ending !

please tell me part 2 is already out?? please don't let this book end like this??? The uncle should have been ashamed of himself. I was waiting for someone to kill him & the friends (especially Bunz).

Good storyline. Didn’t care for the reader.

I was a bit disgusted with the men’s attraction to young girls. Yet I know it’s something that’s an ugly sickness that happens in society. I didn’t particularly like the reader. I started/stopped several times because of the reader. I finally got through it because I wanted to know if there was some sort of light for Khalid and Journey. The ending had me shocked though. There should be a part two for sure.

Horrible Writing

The writing style is all over the place. One sentence is narrated and the next sentence maybe in the first person. The characters aren’t developed enough. Performance sounds like someone reading to first graders. I’ve read better stories on the back of a bubble gum wrapper. Don’t waste your time. Free cost me 6 hours of my life!

pointless novel

This took me over a week to listen to and finish, I was so annoyed and frustrated!!! I am not familiar with this author so I won't judge her entire writing style by this one book. The characters are very under developed, there was no cheering for the underdog because we were giving absolutely nothing to cheer for. It was just a simple and very sad depiction of day to day for everyone in the book. There was no plot, it was just blaaahhhh....As for the main two characters who I would have like to cheer for, it was just "life's a bit@#, and then you die..." because that is exactly how this story went. It was just awful. Not awful as in a sad ending that leaves you thinking, oh no..., the WHOLE book was just DUMB and a waste of a credit.

Very interesting

I would've lived for a Male to tell the male stories.
It left me hanging, which was a good thing. I want to know if there is a part 2.

Not a bad book

This is not one of Ms. Bells better narrations. I had a hard time remembering who was speaking at times because she pretty much used the same voice. The story wasn’t horrible but the details of the main characters sexual abuse of his niece everyday wasn’t necessary. It was is too much of a focus. I hate hearing the detailed description and find myself skipping it. I have about two hours left but I’m struggling to get thru.
