Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When James and the rest of them talk about the other guys, their faces get all twisted so that they don't even look like themselves. I wonder if I looked like that when I beat up that guy. I sure was mad enough.

Remy has just been released from juvenile detention and is back in his old neighborhood. He went away because he severely assaulted a guy who insulted his girlfriend--Asia. As a white boy dating an immigrant, Remy has had to take a lot of the inbred racism that exists in the inner-city--from strangers, his family and even the police. When the white kids and the outsiders start scrapping over the local basketball court, Remy is caught between sticking up for his friends and siding with Asia, who is now seeing Marcus--the leader of the other group.

Norah McClintock is the author of a number of titles in the Orca Soundings series including Tell, Bang and Snitch. Norah lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Synopsis:

After serving time for assault, Remy must learn to control his anger.
