Contrary to popular belief not every parent of a an African American kid gets hip hop. I do get the rough times of being a tween, the challenges of being in foster care and what it means to have friends. Three girls lose some of their innocence of childhood but discover their strengths and the power of friendship. This book introduced me to the hip hop culture, a culture I knew little about. I understand now why so many young people from kids to twenty-somethings identify strongly with this artist. Good read.
