In a perfect world, Joan Jett would be as big as Courtney Love, and Mia Zapata would be alive and giving them both a run for their money. The world, however, is less than perfect. In 1993, Zapata, lead singer of the Seattle band the Gits, was raped and murdered. Since then, the remaining Gits have arranged several benefit concerts to fund an ongoing private investigation into the still-unsolved crime, as well as Home Alive, an organization dedicated to self-defense education.

Growing up in her Compton neighborhood, Dominique became a gangbanger almost by default. The rough crew she ran with were the only people she thought she could trust; they could relate to being 14 years old and on your own because your mother is in jail on a drug charge. She is now 16, a convicted felon herself, with a 3-month-old son and enough emotional scars to convince her that hanging out with the wrong crowd may not be a worthy life goal after all.
