Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Imagine being a middle-class, university-educated young Pakeha woman from Wellington's leafy suburbs and turning your back on all that to live in a house with Black Power gang connections in the rundown inner-city. This memoir lifts the lid on the lives of women who love gang members, and the price they pay.

Winner of the NZSA E.H McCormick best first book award for non-fiction.

New Zealand post book awards 2010 Finalist.
