FROM THE PUBLISHER
 
I always did right by Amina even though it was sometimes major difficult to take care of a daughter that I loved with all my heart, but never wanted in the first place.
China Cup Cameron might miss school or fall asleep in class sometimes, but she's trying hard to be a good mother to Amina, her two-year-old daughter. When tragedy befalls the small family, China must quit school and work full-time to make ends meet. But the only place in town that's willing to hire a fourteen-year-old high-school dropout is Obsidian Queens, a strip club, and China is forced to make some difficult and potentially self-destructive decisions.

Through China's harrowing, emotionally resonant story, for which Lori Aurelia Williams won the PEN/Phyllis Naylor Working Writer Fellowship while it was still a work-in-progress, the author of When Kambia Elaine Flew in from Neptune creates a window into the all-too-real world of a teen mother faced with unthinkable choices.

Annotation
China Cup Cameron, a fourteen-year-old single mother with only her paralyzed Uncle Simon for support, takes on tremendous personal debt in hopes of a beautiful funeral after her daughter dies.
