In The Coldest Winter Ever, internationally known author, activist, and hip-hop artist Sister Souljah brought the streets of New York to life in a powerful and unforgettable first novel. Beautifully written, raw, and authentic, this novel firmly established Sister Souljah as the mother of all contemporary urban literature and the author of the first classic of the genre.
I came busting into the world during one of New York's worst snowstorms, so my mother named me Winter.
Ghetto-born, Winter is the young, wealthy daughter of a prominent Brooklyn drug-dealing family. Quick-witted, sexy, and business-minded, this teenage female hustler knows and loves the streets like the curves of her own body. But when a cold wind blows her life in a direction she never expected, her street smarts and seductive skills are put to the test of a lifetime.
In this special gift edition, Sister Souljah shares her secret thoughts on creating the story that rocked ghettos worldwide and introduced all readers to the real ghetto experience. For the first time ever, readers will discover the answers to the continuous questions asked by her fans. Souljah discusses the symbolism behind characters like Midnight and Santiaga, as well as the many meanings of the story. Readers will also learn about Souljah's unique writing process and exactly what inspired her to pen the definitive novel of the hip-hop generation. In her own voice, Souljah will share why this novel is truly a story of our time.

Sister Souljah, born and raised in New York, is a graduate of Rutgers University. A hip-hop star, she is best known for her work as a political activist and educator of underclass urban youth. Currently, Souljah is the Executive Director of Daddy's House Social Programs, Sean Puffy Combs' not-for-profit company for children. A frequent guest on television's most popular talk and news shows, Sister Souljah is a loved personality in her own community and was a featured speaker for the Million Woman March. She lives with her husband and son in New York City.

  • The Coldest Winter Ever

    This is one of the realest, most true to form novels of our generation. Everyone from the street level hustler to drug kingpens and everyone who falls in between their world can relate to this book in some way. We all know a "Winter" and we all have a lil bit of her inside of us. I highly anticipate the sequel to this novel in October.

  • The best book I read so far

    I first read this book my freshman year in high school. This book is very much like a biography of a girl that lives a street life. I have read the book almost ten times so far.

  • This Is by far the most grasping book of all on my bookshelf. As a Sophmore in High School, I can relate to a lot of Winters problems. This book is a MUST HAVE! Buy it!
