****On Sale for a limited time**** "Rollin' down the street in a phat hoopty: it was just him and his posse. Music: blaring. The beat: bumpin'. You know, these bad brothas were up to somethin'. Forty in hand. His boy chillin' in the passenger seat. Grinnin', laughin', and spittin' game to the beat." Well, it may sound silly to you, but it was what they were doing. Rollin' down the street with the convertible top down, cruising around their hood in a car they had just 'borrowed' from up-town. The four of them were still riding the adrenaline high they got from doing a 'job', one that would definitely land them in jail if they were caught. So begins the story of Skito, Ry, John, and Jewels, four teenagers trying to survive Boston's inner-city streets. Listening to them talk about selling drugs, doing petty crimes, and committing murder, the reader becomes immersed in the language and culture of four young men looking for fun, shelter, and the good life. -------------------------- About the Author -------------------------- R.
