Title: That White Girl: A Novel
That White Girl is a fresh and hard-edged novel chronicling a young woman’s quest for self-discovery while straddling two worlds, that of her middle-class Irish Catholic upbringing and her new family—the Crips, America’s notorious street gang.
What happens when a white girl flirts with the color lines and crosses
the border into gang territory, where the bullets are in part real and the rules
cannot be broken? JLove tells this incredible story inspired by her own
Amber, a fearless white girl, has a passion for rap lyrics and
an addiction to graffiti, but her journey begins when she becomes
immersed in the power and grind of gang life after holding a gun to an
innocent man’s head during a robbery.
That White Girl is a sharp and candid coming-of-age story, with hip-hop as its backdrop, that explores a young woman’s struggles and triumphs as she crosses boundaries, discovers her own limits, and finds a new way to express herself in a world divided into black and white.
