Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning new novel by the Author of Way Past Cool<P>There aren't many choices for inner-city teenagers, and Dante and his friends know it. Dante needs a heart operation; Pook wants to go to college and medical school; and they all want to get out of Babylon. None of these dreams are possible — until they find a suitcase, tossed from a drug dealer's car during a police chase. Thinking that it contains the money that will finally give them the escape route they've been seeking, they take it, but find it is filled with pure cocaine. Suddenly they have choices. Selling the drugs would solve their immediate problems, but it would also contribute to the destruction of their community, and make them an integral part of everything that's wrong in Babylon.
