About the book
A gritty street tale bristling with the muscle and teeth of Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines "Trudy, a.k.a. "Trudy with the Booty" knows what she wants and just how to get it. But a better life away from the jack-up streets of South Central L.A. needs to be financed and homegirl can't even think of leaving without delivering some sweet payback to her slick talking ex, Lil Steve.
Ever since he started selling nude videos of her to the neighborhood men, Trudy can barely walk outside. Ganking him would be the icing on the cake to her bank-robbing scheme. But Trudy's plan to get even and escape the ghetto is more than risky it may be the worst mistake of her life.
Having recruited a crew of hustlers, car-jackers and home wreckers who hang out at the seedy nightclub, Dee's Parlor, where she sings after working days as a bank teller, Trudy is ready to put her plan into action a heist to make them all rich.
There's just one problem: Jimmy, a stone-cold killer who doesn't like being ripped off. And while the best laid plans often go awry, no one could have guessed where this wild, crazy ride takes this cast of lawbreakers and heartbreakers as they scramble over and under each other to get what they want.
A fast-paced, exhilarating drama with sharply drawn characters, sultry writing, and a fierce intensity of emotion, WANT SOME, GET SOME is a brilliantly assured debut. A promising new talent, Pam Ward brings a woman's sense of bravado to a boy's game.
