It described in great detail all the long nights of drug use and partying. I felt like I had been up all night with Kristina. The ending was not at all predictable. When Kristina returns to her mom's house to get clean from the drugs and to have the baby you believe that she will succeed. After she talks to her mother about not being able to provide for the baby and how difficult it was to love him, she decides to give the baby to her mother to adopt and raise.
Page one (1), line thirteen, states “Harlem is not an easy place to grow old” – and this is very much backed up throughout the story in her case. Junice first explains to us how her life became turned upside down, her mother (a current drug dealer), had been caught on the corner “holding”, and was placed in jail. And, to ice the “big happy family cake” her father was “non-existent, and that is how it had always been. Thus, Junice and her sister Melissa were taken from their home and went to stay with a woman by the name of Miss Ruby for the time being.

Prostitution is also associated with the feminist view that all sex workers are coerced or forced into the profession, but is this true in a country with anti-pimping laws?

Few words clarify the difficulties of her everyday life and this mother’s ambivalence when thinking
They feel themselves to be out of control of their lives. Essentially, they have developed a chronic disorder as a result of their victimization and an inability to separate themselves from the sexual exploitation in order to make a better life for themselves. In a recent study based on an analysis of 200 women street prostitutes, 78% reported starting prostitution as juveniles; and 68% were 16 or younger when they started prostitution. A majority of the juvenile prostitutes described family structures with the outward appearances of stability. Over three-fourths reported having a religious
