Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;In a school run by gangs, staying out was harder than joining. We knew who our friends were, and were careful what we said. If people thought we were haters, it would only be a matter of time....andlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Lines are clearly marked at South Bay High School. It's mixed territory for the Crips and the Bloods, which means the drama never stops. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Julia DiVino wants none of it. No colors, no C-Walks — it's just not her thing. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; But when Eric Valientand#233; jumps into her life, everything changes. Lines are redrawn. And then they're crossed.

Synopsis:

The acclaimed author of "Street Pharm" delivers a second gritty, fast-paced urban novel that takes readers back to the streets of Sheepshead, Brooklyn. Original.

I love books like this, with gang issues. It lets you know how real it is for some people who either have no choice but to join to make their families safe or just to have some people to back them up when they need it but the stronger ones are the ones who get out. I really liked this book.
