Publisher's Summary

In the Gutter there are only two ways for a girl to earn a living - among the trash or on her back. When Hart decides that's not good enough for her, she takes on the high-stakes world of no-holds-barred fighting. There's just one problem: Women aren't allowed in the ring.
Hair cut short and dressed in her father's old clothes, Hart ventures into the Alley and the world of arena fighting. There she meets Ruby, the daughter of the Arena owner and a brilliant fighter in her own right. When she offers Hart the chance for friendship, Hart cannot resist.
But Ruby thinks Hart is a man, and as she and Ruby grow closer, it gets harder and harder to maintain the fa├žade....

Brilliant Lesbian Story

This was unexpectedly fun and different. The narration was good, the story was interesting and well worth a listen.

The cover really doesn't do it justice.

This is one of my favorite audio books that I have listened to this year.

Not Especially Realistic; Still Good Though

I'm not certain what era this story is set in, or what country for that matter. When a 140 pound woman can beat a 180 pound man; a professional fighter no less you know that a lesbian writer is engaging in wishful thinking. Still this a piece of fiction that avoided many of the more common cliches present in more than enough books. The Gutter is a sweet bit of metaphor for a section of the city where hopes go to die. The way the lead character's dreams come true is a nice touch as is her escape from the book's main antagonist. This wasn't a great story, but for a fan of an under represented genre, it's good enough.
