it was amazing

Jamal, joins a gang called the Scorpions after his brother tells him that he is now the leader. Jamal, thinking he now has all this authority and power begins to gain confidence and starts doing things he would have never done before. It isn't until he kills someone and that his best friend, Tito takes the blame for him that he realizes his mistake. Jamal wishes he can take everything back, but he can't. He lost the best friendship that he could ever have and regrets it dearly.

Scorpions is an amazing book that Walter Dean Myers wrote. He really focuses on teenagers,their reactions and emotions. He persuades his that gangs are bad and to not be easily tricked by them. Even, Jamal, a sweet and good kid fell into the wrong crowd, so anything can happen. We got to be cautious of our own actions. Our actions might affect others. This is what this book has taught me.
