Summary

Hustling men for their money has always come easy for Tasha. Hailing from New York and raised by a junkie mother, she had to learn early how to use her beauty to her advantage. Tasha thinks she's seen it all on the streets of New York, but when she follows a childhood friend to the little city of Flint, Michigan, she realizes that sometimes the smallest cities breed the grimiest of individuals. 

When Tasha and her friends link up with Manolo, one of Flint's known stick-up kids, they take the hustlers of Flint for all they're worth. Any man who falls for a pretty face is a target, and under the guidance of Manolo, the girls quickly learn the game of manipulation and deceit. They become known as the Manolo Mamis, and their skills gain them thousands of dollars in no time. 

Tasha is living the life of the young and fly, but when tragedy strikes and the stakes are raised, she has to choose between loyalty and self-sacrifice. When the only man she's ever loved becomes her target, will she decide to save him, or will she remain loyal to the Manolo Mamis?

A little mild

This is a cool little story, but, it's just a little too mild for my particular taste. It's a nice flow, and the narrator does an excellent job. But I was expecting a little more action, and a little bit more excitement, but over all, it's a cool story.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?

Flint was the bomb. I love this book because it speaks of many truths of what goes on under our very noses today. It is ashame that parents are strung out on drugs all while trying to sell their children’s body off for drugs and money. I was so happy when the young ladies became friend’s and treated eachother like family. I was so saddened by Ms.Pat coming down with cancer, when omra was diagnosed with full blown A.I.D.S, when Tasha started snitching, Tasha going to prison, and worst of all her “so called” friend Honey, stole all of the money and took her man. I was heated and ready to whip some ass after reading this book. You must read this book. It is a wonderful read.

Excellent!!!!

I didn’t know this book existed. I’ve already listened to the entire Flint series, and I can tell this one must be first . Amazing book and outstanding series. Narrator rocked it per usual.
