I was trying my best to get into the book it was just too much or the flow just wasn't right for me! Kim was doing a little to much and really it didnt add up to me! I read up to half the book hoping it would bring me in but it didnt ! When u find yourself skipping pages to find the good part its time to give it up !

Just finished reading this book. Loved it from the start, although I was very confused about the title
"Street Life to House Wife?" I don't get the "housewife" part. I was hoping for an epilogue, especially seeing how its supposed to be a true story. Is the author going to have a sequel?

Kim Robinson pens a work of fiction about a teenager's passage from innocence to hell in the 1980s. "From Streetlife to Housewife" is an eye-opener for young people and parents. Kim gives us a look into Sparkle's life as a bookie, dope pusher and call-girl. The novel is not for the faint hearted. If you enjoy reading about street life and high-rollers, this is the book. The backdrop is a low-income neighborhood in Compton, California, and glimpses into Hollywood and Crenshaw areas of Los Angeles.

At 18 years-of-age, Sparkle's mother tells her, and I paraphrase, one day you're gonna do something great. I done seen a vision...you gonna make a difference. Her parents are normal, God-fearing, church going folks, with the exception of her uncles.

One uncle, an established pimp with a stable of whores, learns of Sparkle's dope dealings, and "protects" her by teaching her the ropes--the rules of the game. She becomes an excellent protégée. But promises her uncle that she will not become a prostitute; however, large money draws her like a magnet. Sparkle runs with a fast crowd yet refuses to sell her body, because of that principle she becomes a challenge to one man--a visiting member of a drug Cartel from Columbia who offers her $2,200 to bed her. She doesn't pass up the money and extends her little enterprise to include call-girl. Although disappointed that she broke her word, uncles continue to "have her back" in everything thing she does.

Big parties, drugs and alcohol nearly every night are a foregone conclusion.

Sparkle has two bad relationships. The first is a gambler who showers big money and expensive clothes on the 19-year-old and him 36. They marry in Las Vegas, with a fake ID. She learns early that her husband is a jealous, controlling, womanizer and annuls their marriage after two months.

The man in the second relationship is insecure and a liar, but they love each other. Trouble rears its head when he learns his wife is turning tricks. He's hurt and wants revenge. He goes to the wrong men--pimps--for advice in dealing with his stubborn, independent wife. She is labeled an outlaw for refusing to share her money with a pimp long ago, so they were very happy to "help a brother out" with advice.

Throughout all the upheaval in her life, she continues to use drugs, work as a call-girl and party. And money comes easy in Sparkle's world.

"From Streetlife to Housewife" has a few bumpy chapters but if you persevere, you won't be disappointed. It's a page-turner, no doubt. I was spellbound to the last page. *I reviewed the 2nd draft of Kim's book, I assume the finished product will read better.*

Kim Robinson wants her story to be an inspiration to change lives. It's a hard call.

I don't know if the title of this book was the best fitting but this book was pretty entertaining. The main character was smart, funny and she payed attention to everything and everyone around her. This west coast tale had me laughing and slapping my knee. I wonder if a part two is coming and if so I would most certainly read it.
