Read in March, 2012

This book had me from the beginning. It started out with action, and kept me intrigued the entire time. It was an easy read, but the story line was a bit intricate. It took me a second to figure out what was the main point of the story but once I did it made so much sense. I was able to relate to this book because of the struggle it takes to be successful. While I have never grown up in any of these conditions of that neighborhood and gone through the the hard times, I have always tried to keep my nose clean like the people in that neighborhood. In my eyes, Young African Americans like the kids in this book and like I are misunderstood. We all want to make it, but it's about how we get there.
