Description

She comes across as an incredibly strong character and she raises some interesting philosophical questions about the lifestyle. It’s astonishing how in the blink of an eye and a small white lie, this girls life can go from being a normal 12 year old, to a county lines top girl. It’s meant to shock and really it should be read by teenagers up and down the country to show that ‘gang’ life for girls is not glamorous but dangerous and menacing. Danielle is therefore when her half brother is born, her step-father does his best to take care of her, but there is a glaring gap in her youth which left her open to forces which she had no defences against. I read Top Girl with fraught nerves and such investment in Danielle’s story that several events hit me like an emotional gut punch.

Betrayed by the police after a brutal gang rape, she finds protection under the wing of organised criminals and falls in love with the local 'top boy'. She has since advocated within the criminal justice system for many women: "the hidden victims and participants of organised crime" - and begins her Masters in September 2021. Instead of trying to straighten out and get him back ASAP, she continued with the life of crime which would likely mean she’d never see him again……. Danielle’s gritty, emotional, no-holds-barred memoir lays bare the reality of a county lines insider and reveals the truth about life on the frontline of Britain’s biggest drug threat for a generation.TOP GIRL” is Danielle’s true story, told first hand by her, in a voice you will instantly find compelling and addictive.

The money and glamour of her hedonistic lifestyle are the envy of all of her friends, but the good times and the money only mask the grim realities of her life when she is arrested and her life hits a turning point where she starts to question everything that has ever happened in her life. It’s a propulsive and pacy read too with Danielle charting her distressing progression to fully-fledged ‘top girl’ in an uncompromising manner that makes for a real eye-opener. But it’s the male attention and manipulation that really sets her on a path to gangs and drugs, miles from the life a smart grammar school graduate would be expected to be on.

It stops dealers been dehumanised because it’s told from a place of truth and you get to understand some of what this amazing woman has been through. Her cleverness has been exploited by her school who never really 'got' her or supported her, she has been abandoned by her family who moved to Greece and left her in a foster home. Danielle is a tough grammar school Londoner, hanging around the streets with her mates, but not getting into too much bother, like most teenagers.
