Hood Rat: A Novel (Paperback)
National bestselling author K’wan presents a story of four women fighting to survive in the urban jungle in Hood Rat.

Billy, a former high school basketball star, has been looking for love. Then she meets someone new and her whole world is turned upside down and she will never be the same.
Reese is an around-the-way chick, trying to keep up with the Joneses. There’s a revolving door on her bedroom as she tries to find the love she always felt was missing. Her promiscuity leaves her pregnant from a one-night stand and Reese is faced with the task of breaking an age-old cycle, passed down from mother to daughter in her family, and standing on her own.
Rhonda is twenty-something with three kids, by three men, and riding the system all the way to the bank. To her, work is a dirty word; between the multiple checks she gets from the government, and the games she plays with men, she’s living the life of a ghetto superstar. The game soon turns ugly when one of her “sponsors” snaps and decides to get some payback.
Harlem has never seen four friends as scandalous as these. The neighborhood will never be the same again.
