The Crenshaw Six are a small, but up-and-coming gang, in South Central LA who have recently been drawn into an escalating war between rival drug cartels. To outsiders, the Crenshaw Six appear to be led by a man named Garcia, but what no one has figured out is that the gang's real leader, and secret weapon, is Garcia's girlfriend, a brilliant young woman named Lola. Lola has mastered playing the role of submissive girlfriend, and in the man's world she inhabits she is consistently underestimated. But in truth she is much, much smarter, and in many ways tougher and more ruthless than any of the men around her. As the gang is increasingly sucked into a world of high-stakes, betrayal and brutal violence, her skills and leadership become their only hope of survival.

I even feel like one star is a lot. I could not get into this. The writing is not that good. The story seemed interesting, but the protagonist refers to herself in the third person, and 9 chapters in is still talking about how her mom treated her. I got it already. It feels like filler, and the main story is getting glazed over. It just wasn't my style. I didn't finish it. It seemed like a waste of time when there are so many other books out there that I haven't read.

Cleopatra . . . Helen of Troy . . . the female rulers of the Roman Empire . . . the first queen of asset forfeiture [oh what a horrific scam, that Spanish Inquisition], Isabella of Spain, and now . . .
Lola Vasquez, the next goddessfather or ungodleymother? ?
An outstanding read with a modern day anti-heroine, as the literary pundits might gush!
[The one and only one item which destroyed an otherwise perfect book, was the inclusion, on p. 101 at the second-to-the-bottom paragraph, of that middle-class, white-bread, pro-status quo drivel - - most unnecessary for thinking people - - hope the author at some future point realizes that.]
