She may be poor, abused, and self-destructive, but Leshaya is determined to become a famous singer like Etta James.
Leshaya is a survivor. Rescued from the brink of death, this child of a heroin addict has seen it all: revolving foster homes, physical abuse, an unwanted pregnancy. Now, as her tumultuous childhood is coming to an end, she is determined to make a life for herself by doing the only thing that makes her feel whole . . . singing.
Han Nolan pulls no punches in this hard-hitting story of a girl at the bottom who dreams of nothing but the top.
star "Raw, rough, and riveting . . . The writing is superb; like the blues, it bores through the soul. . . . Readers will be absorbed in this intimate and painful voyage."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Absolutely riveting . . . Leshaya captivates with her strength and determination."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
