génesis | 6 comments It's a group of about 5 teens who live in an abandoned building (not sure if it's a post-apocalyptic dystopia or just a very poor country) and some of them take part in illegal car races? The leader is the oldest (nineteen at the most) and I think he has a little brother that all the gang protect. There's only one girl and I think she ends up dating the leader of the gang. One of the guys I think is a mechanic.... There's a rival gang that also races cars... I think there is a policeman or some government official that's trying to get them out of the building. I read this like 3-5 years ago

No, I don't think so. I'm pretty sure the main character was male.
