"Favelas," or shantytowns, are where cocaine is mainly sold in Rio de Janeiro. There are some six hundred "favelas" in the city, and most of them are controlled by well-organized and heavily armed drug gangs. The struggle for the massive profits from this drug trade has resulted in what are increasingly violent and deadly confrontations between rival drug gangs and a corrupt and brutal police force, that have transformed parts of the city into a war-zone. "Lucia" tells the story of one woman who was once intimately involved with drug gang life in Rio throughout the 1990s. Through a series of conversations with the author, Lucia describes conditions of poverty, violence, and injustice that are simply unimaginable to outsiders. In doing so, she explains why women like her become involved with drugs and gangs, and why this situation is unlikely to change.

So I bought this book for a sociology class that I am currently taking; The actual cover of the book doesn't look this...um...well anyway. The hardcover edition (which I bought) is actually a very plain brown "leather-like" cover and too be honest, actually quite nice. It really is a shame that I have to underline/flag pages of this thing and even more uh...ridiculous is that for such an elegant cover, this book in my opinion is not very good. This is an interesting read and a very, very, short read at that, but the price I paid was like....$50 or something and that WAAAAAAAAY too much for this book!
The story: well if you like telenovelas or soap operas like I don't "one life to live" or stuff like that then you will like this book but if you want my advice: don't buy the hardcover book unless your professor is giving an exam on the book and you're pressed for time. If you've seen the movie "city of god" and liked it then you will like this book. If you are the feminist type though...(and not to be judgmental as I myself a woman) be prepared to get your feathers ruffled a little bit; I imagine the goal of this book is to provide insight (through Lucia's personal testimony) on the sad state of Brazil's economic and social infrastructure...and the inequalities therein

I appreciated Lucia's honesty in sharing her tale. She is not an empowered woman, I must add. Her livelihood was highly dependent on the efforts of the men in her life. In her early life, she didn't see the value of education. Now that she has acquired some wisdom, she realizes that education really is a powerful tool in exceeding negative circumstances.
