Some brief overview of this book

A tough and funny project girl manages to make that chill wind blow away.

The good life, according to Aisha Ingram, is easy. Its hanging with friends, dancing, listening to music, whatever . . . but it doesnt include worrying about the future. Chilling out is her mantra until she receives a sixty-day termination-of-welfare-benefits notice. Without her monthly food stamps and assistance checks and with no help from the father of her two children, Aishas life threatens to become a little too chilly. The clock is ticking and she doesnt have many options, but one thing she knows for sure: workfare is not for her. Theres no way shes going to scrub subway cars or sweep city sidewalks. Aisha tries to come up with other ways to get money, but things dont look good. Soon another notice comes: only thirty days left. Then she sees an ad on TV for BIGMODELS, and she figures she might as well check out the agency. After all, she is pretty enough. But just when it looks like Aishas problems might be solved, things grow crazy again.

In Aisha, Janet McDonald has created a larger-than-life heroine who finds and succeeds at what is right for her.

Janet McDonald, a lawyer, was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She is the author of Spellbound, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and the adult memoir Project Girl. She now lives in Paris, France.

Afraid that she will have no where to go when her welfare checks are stopped, nineteen-year-old high school dropout Aisha tries to figure out how she can support herself and her two young children in New York City.
