Five girl gangsters ages 13-17 mix it up on the means streets of Vancouver (yes, fellow Americans, Canada has crime and violence). Bad bad things happen, so if you don't like to read bad bad things happening to (and by) teenaged girls, you might find this book a tough read.
Anatomy is told in six voices: the five gangsters--Mac, the 17-year-old OG; Mercy, the thieving Punjabi American Princess; Kayos, the muscle, 15, from a wealthy family, and mother of a two-year-old incest child; Sly Girl, the mostly-in-recovery drug dealer; Z, the graf artist; and Vancouver, who says "It is said that I am the youngest metropolis in North America, one of the youngest cities on Earth, but sometimes ...sometimes, I feel so old."
Fav tidbit: Mac plunks down $3K for a purebred pit bull terrier and then borrows library books to learn how to train him.
Fav extra: a three page glossary of street terms.
hella: to describe a lot of something; similar to 'very' or 'really'
