Cover of SISTER MISCHIEF by Laura Goode

BOOK JACKET BLURB: Listen up: You’re about to get rocked by the fiercest, baddest all-girl hip-hop crew in the Twin Cities–or at least in the wealthy, white, Bible-thumping suburb of Holyhill. Our heroine, Esme Rockett, aka MC Ferocious, is a Jewish lesbian lyricist in this O.C. of Minnesota, and a smart, sassy die-hard word nerd. In her crew, Esme’s got her BFF’s Marcy, aka DJ SheStorm, the butchest straight girl in town and captain of the Holyhill drumline, and Tess, aka The ConTessa, the pretty, popular powerhouse of a vocalist and former super-Lutheran teen queen. But Esme’s feelings for her co-MC, Rowie (MC Rohini), a beautiful, brilliant, beguiling desi chick on the stick, are bound to get even more complicated than the rhyme schemes they dream up together. Everybody’s gonna be talking about this bidness: these four girls are the illest Sister Mischief. The surprisingly tender, wickedly funny coming-of-age story weaves a powerful master mix of music, language, faith, love, and standing by your ride-or-dies.
