Alas, poor Yuki
Sweat Street is a gritty narrative that draws the reader in from the get-go. One minute you’re bouncing along on the rap-poem that opens the book, the next you’re holding your breath over Yuki, her rough-edged life and the dangers all around her. When she witnesses a killing and the bad cops have her on the run, she goes into hiding with a most unusual companion, and the two surprise one another (and themselves) with their degrees of involvement and the goodness at their centers. The story’s not for the faint of heart; it’s compelling, raw writing you can’t easily put down, nor easily forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars
The real deal!

Sweat Street was genuinely good. Had that honest, free-flowing quality that makes good fiction a pleasure to read. The story was great and the dialogue was awesome. I’m a fan!

It’s so interesting!

I liked the way the story keeps you on the edge of the seat. It makes you think what would you do if you were one of the characters, which are so real, you wonder if they were taken from real life.
