All that glitters is not gold, this learns when she was very young and she knows that life is hard in this world. At the end of her rope is a former star of high school basketball named Billy. She thinks that what men do is cheat on every woman and according to her all men are dogs. Hence, in the arms of women is where she secretly seeks comfort. This goes on day in and day out until she meets someone, a man who truly loved her and reevaluates her feelings that was buried inside her from a long time. Reese is another chick from the story she is trying everything to be with Joneses. She always felt the love that was missing from her life and as she is trying to find it she gets confused. She is not able to decide what to choose for her life. Her normal behavior of the one night stand leaves her pregnant and now she must break the cycle that has been passed down in her family from mother to daughter and she is now on her own in the world. Rhonda is another woman in the story with the age of twenty-something and she has three kids and their fathers are three different people and the system she is riding is till the bank. When someone says work, she finds it as a dirty word and she is living a ghetto superstar’s life. This is because the government is giving her multiple checks and she is also playing with men and their pockets. Later, one of the sponsors decides that enough is enough and it’s time to get a payback, things get too ugly. The neighborhood in which they live will never be the same again.

The second book written in the Hood Rat series is titled ‘Still Hood’ and it was published by Macmillan on 2nd October of the year 2007. On the streets of Brooklyn only the strong can survive. Dena Jones, who has the ability to survive as well as succeed in the city, she decides to get out of it. She has made her mind that she will no longer live in Crooklyn and is ready to do anything to get what she wants, even manipulating men for her cause. If you want to know about her then you should ask Lance, her boyfriend or Michelle, his girlfriend. Another character in the story is True, who has finally got what he wanted for a long time. As soon as his debut album came out, the people on the streets went crazy. True’s group was murdered along with most part of his dreams, but his life is finally getting ahead. As we know Karma is a bitch, it catches up with True’s life. Somebody in the city wants him to die and he doesn’t have a single clue why, or maybe he does. Yoshi and Jah’s story was supposed to have a good romance in their life, but in ghetto fairy tales don’t exist. She is always busy with her rough work and Jah is trying his best to understand her situation, but the problem is he doesn’t know till when he can trust her. He had already promised Yoshi that no matter what her past brings, he will still love her. At the same time, he has a bigger problem that he has to take care of. It is his job to stop the person who is trying to kill True.
