From beloved daughter to abused foster child to crack addict, this is the heart-wrenching true story of a girl named Cupcake Brown.

Following her mother's death, Cupcake was just eleven years old when she entered the child welfare system. Moved from one disastrous placement to the next she was, like so many, neglected and sexually abused. She developed a massive appetite for drugs and alcohol - an appetite fed by hustling and turning tricks - and before long, stumbled headlong into the wild, notoriously dangerous world of the gangsta.

But ironically, it was Cupcake's rapid descent into nightmare of crack cocaine addiction that finally saved her. After one crack binge she woke up behind a dumpster. Half dressed and more than halfdead, she finally knew she had to change her life or die.

Brutally frank, startlingly funny, "A Piece of Cake" is the remarkable true story of a resilient spirit who took on the wrost of contemporary urban life and survived it. It is also the most genuinely affecting rollercoaster ride trough hell and back that you will ever take.

I purchased this book at a local bookstore, prior to the shop going out of business. I am not sure what to really make of this book. Although this book is meant to be a memoir, I just feel that some parts were either exaggerated or mixed with a little fiction. On the whole, it was an ok read.
