Publisher:

Inner City Girl presents the story of a girl’s resolve in spite of tough socio-economic challenges. The author’s powers of description make the harsh and brutal life, culture and behaviour in the inner city real to the readers and underscore the challenges that the heroine must confront in her effort to make a better life. The protagonist is strong, courageous and believable. This realistic presentation of prejudice engages the reader’s emotions and makes it easy to identify with the self-determined heroine. A gripping story with multiple plot lines, Inner City Girl is definitely a page-turner.
