First I just have to say, WOW! This story was graphic, short (only 15 minutes to read) but packed a punch. Stella definitely needs to be a full length novel. Stella's Grandmother and Cousin are deplorable and they both get what they deserve! I was sad it ended. I NEED to know what happens to this poor 16 year old girl. Her life just has to get better! I would recommend this to all Street-Lit lovers. Don't get dismayed by its length. How many times have we all purchased books for $10 that rambled on for 200 pages with grammatical errors? Stella....simply, FANTASTIC!
