Step into the world of 11-year-old Isis Carter, who's just been robbed of her Adidas trainers by an all-girl gang. Fast-forward into the world of 19-year-old Isis Carter, who has just been released from prison after spending time inside for trying to avenge that attack, alongside numerous other injustices against her. Isis dearly wants to rebuild a life. That isn't easy, though. Not for anyone, and especially not for Isis: her father's profession as a pimp means that her family home is constantly overrun with exactly the type of person she now trying to avoid.

display_description Isis Carter learned early about surviving in the streets. When she was robbed, she took back what was hers. When her brother was killed and her mom left, Isis fought to stay strong. After her dad abandoned her for his new family, 16 year old Isis was on her own--until a run-in with the law shattered her world.
