Publisher's Summary

In this shocking novel of a young girl alone on the streets, Donald Goines delves into yet another facet of the ghetto experience - the dark, despair-ridden world of a black girl's soul.
Sandra took to the streets when she was eight years old and tried to fight off the hunger pangs by shoplifting and moving into the profits of drug pushing. Then she met Chink, and with him she discovered love and affection...as well as rape and murder.

Great Performance of a tragically beautiful tale

I have been a Donald Goines fan for decades. However, Black Girl Lost was a book I had slept on growing up in the 70's. Wow!!! I hate I missed it but, now I understand some things having gained more life experience.

Bahni Turpin's performance is wonderful She definitely captured the essence of the characters and interpreted scenes very well. Very moving performance of young love in a tragic background bent on surviving with each other no matter the odds.

Now I Know

My Dad used to read Donald Goines. After listening to BGL, I now understand. He's an expert storyteller. The content is dark, raw & real. He pulls no punches and sugar coats nothing. This love story, amid the harsh backdrop of drugs and alcohol in the bleak inner city, was tender and beautiful at its core. Chink and Saundra make Romeo and Juliet look like Ernie & Bert. My only regret was that it was over too quickly.
