Inhaltsangabe: Two inner-city teenagers--Dante, who badly needs a heart operation, and Pook, who dreams of going to medical school--are confronted with a difficult choice when they stumble upon a cache of cocaine whose sale would give them their dreams but contribute to the demise of their community.
Rezension: Jess Mowry, author of Way Past Cool, hits the ground running with another powerful exploration of how the world looks and feels for black, inner-city teens. Dante, Pook, and Wyatt don't have many choices in life. Dante might never be able to afford the operation that could fix his heart (damaged before birth by his mother's crack addiction). When they unexpectedly find a large package of pure cocaine, new possibilities dance in front of their eyes. Could they sell the drugs to get money for Dante's operation? His characterizations strong, well-formed, and unpredictable; Mowry spray paints Babylon in raw and honest strokes.
