A Powerful Story of Teen-Age Girls Who Fight Recklessly for Life and Love!
ORIGINAL NOVELS NO. 721
FIRST PRINTING 1952
NEW YORK, USA
The streets swarm with them. The city slums pour them out into the world, and then leave them to take care of themselves...and in their way, the girls do. Some of them take the "easy" road, with men in bars and on street corners. Others fight for decency and a home and future. Some are beautiful, and dream of using their bodies to win fame and applause...and men with the money to give them what they want. Others are plain...but they're still female, with all the urges and yearnings of ripening women.
They all start out on the streets of the city...and from the beginning it's a battle...for food, for decency, for love. Boys in the same predicament form themselves into gangs, and fight with broken bottles and zip-guns, defying the world to stop them...
THIS IS THE STORY OF ONE GIRL WHO FOUGHT WITH EVERYTHING SHE HAD, WITH BODY, WITH HEART, AND FRESH YOUNG BEAUTY...AS THE LEADER OF A NEW KIND OF STREET GANG...A GANG OF TOUGH AND BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.
