The Outsiders meets Mad Max: Fury Road in this fast-paced dystopian novel about sisterhood and the cruel choices people are forced to make in order to survive. At night, Las Mal Criadas own these streets. Sixteen-year-old Nalah leads the fiercest all-girl crew in Mega City. That role brings with it violent throwdowns and access to the hottest boydega clubs, but Nala quickly grows weary of her questionable lifestyle. Her dream is to get off the streets and make a home in the exclusive Mega Towers, in which only a chosen few get to live. To make it to the Mega Towers, Nalah must prove her loyalty to the city's benevolent founder and cross the border in a search of the mysterious gang the Ashe Riders. Led by a reluctant guide, Nalah battles crews and her own doubts but the closer she gets to her goal the more she loses sight of everything-and everyone-she cares about. Nalah must choose whether or not she's willing to do the unspeakable to get what she wants. Can she discover that home is not where you live but whom you chose to protect before she loses the family she's created for good?

"With tough-sounding voices, narrator Marisol Ramirez brings the fierce and fearless characters in this feminist Latinx dystopia to life. Whether she's portraying ambitious Rocka, the head of one of Mega City's top girl gangs, Las Mal Criadas; Truck, Rocka's gravelly voiced enforcer and second-in-command; or the softer, gentler voices of men, who in this universe are relegated to the roles of toilers, healers, or comfort men called Papi Chulos--Ramirez always delivers. The narration will keep listeners enthralled as Rivera's fast-paced story recounts the adventures of young women warriors who fight for a cause bigger than themselves.
