Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Six incendiary stories that reflect the rage and frustration — and the determination to survive — of America's disenfranchised inner-city youth

Concrete Candy marks the debut of an astonishing new writer — notable both for the authenticity and immediacy of his voice and for his age: fifteen. Three years ago, Apollo, a child of the inner city and a protege of the acclaimed novelist Jess Mowry, began writing stories that reflect the tension, drama, and pathos of the urban reality he has lived and witnessed. The result is this collection of six powerful, haunting tales of boys dangerously adrift in the 'hood.
