Lady Q by Reymundo Sanchez and Sonia Rodriguez is a really great book. I felt as if I were Lady Q. I never wanted that book to end. Reading that book opened my eyes up to female roles in the gang life. I related to that book because now and days, many people are persuaded into that stuff, and to see how Hispanics were mistreated really explained why many of us revolved in the gang life. I loved this book so much ! I love the fact that it was all straight up ! no secrets no nothing ! They said everything plain and simple. It gave a real intro about the real world, it’s ruff out there.

Dear stress,

Every day that I get up, my day begins with what I need to do during
the day. Do you know what I think? Well I think of all the things that I have
to do before school, during school, and all the activities that I have after school.
This is you. I mean why can’t I go one day without you finding me and biting me in the butt. I wish that you would go bother someone else or I could strap you to a rocket and watch you fly away from me, but it always seems that even when I am having fun, you always come find me and ruin the day.
