Description

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.

"Mommy's Angel is a fast-paced, well-written, realistic view of what addiction does to our communities. It sheds a bright light on how the addict's hurt, pain, and trouble are recycled onto the people closest to them."
-- Danielle Santiago, author of Grindin' and Essence magazine #1 bestseller Little Ghetto Girl

Résumé
After her big brother Curtis is gunned down in the streets of Brooklyn, Angel's family crumbles. Grief stricken, her mother turns to heroin to ease her pain. She doesn't notice that her son has no food or that her daughters' clothes are torn and dirty. Worst of all, she doesn't see what her boyfriend does to Angel behind closed doors.

Desperate to support her younger brother and sister, Angel hits the streets looking for anything or anyone to help. But she's fifteen years old, so options for legal work are few. As a last resort, she turns to her brother's best friend, Antoine, who arranges for a job for her at a strip club. It's only supposed to be for a while, until she can get her working papers.

Angel is convinced 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.
