What makes a kid turn into a bully? There is not one easy answer to that question and 50 Cent does a good job showing us the mind of Butterball, his 13-year-old protagonist. B-Ball is a confused young man, trying to find his way through difficult situations with very little help. Very little, that is, until he smashes his ex-best-friend in the face with a sock full of batteries and is forced to go to counseling. It's not like his life gets instantly better, but slowly he figures out how to deal with his problems and uncertainties. I didn't want to put this book down...which is interesting, because at first I didn't want to pick it up. Kudos to 50 Cent!

Swear words, no sex, no drugs, some violence.
