Renowned hip-hop artist, writer, and activist Sister Souljah brings the streets of New York to life in a powerful and utterly unforgettable first novel.

I came busting into the world during one of New York's worst snowstorms, so my mother named me Winter.

Ghetto-born, Winter is the young, wealthy daughter of a prominent Brooklyn drug-dealing family. Quick-witted, sexy, and business-minded, she knows and loves the streets like the curves of her own body. But when a cold Winter wind blows her life in a direction she doesn't want to go, her street smarts and seductive skills are put to the test of a lifetime. Unwilling to lose, this ghetto girl will do anything to stay on top.

The Coldest Winter Ever marks the debut of a gifted storyteller. You will never forget this Winter's tale.

It was a good read. I was the last to read it and everyone told me it was so good. I guess I just suspected way too much. It was a good read for the most part.

Redirected With Mad Respect

Reading this book, finally, after all these years has renewed my spirit as a writer. It also made me reevaluate my own dealings with everyday issues. Even if it is fiction, there is always someone who's in a harder position, worse off. Only you can change your outcome. You control your choices. Keep your eyes open for options and opportunities. Act smart, swiftly, and specifically towards your goal. Winter may not have had the best options or made supreme decisions, but she made the most of her surroundings and didn't settle for what was given to her; she fought, sought, and went for it whether or not it was just. Bottom line is that she never stopped, never settled. Now, onto Midnight!

Best book ever
February 12th, 2013
This is seriously probably the best book I have ever met in my life. I read it about 8 years ago and have gone through three paper copies. I know the whole book by heart. This is the story of a teenage hood girl who grew up in a affluent family, but her life is turned upside down when her king pin father is arrested. Great read!
