Über diesen Titel
A stunning new novel by the Author of Way Past Cool
There aren't many choices for inner-city teenagers, and Dante and his friends know it. Dante needs a heart operation; Pook wants to go to college and medical school; and they all want to get out of Babylon. None of these dreams are possible -- until they find a suitcase, tossed from a drug dealer's car during a police chase. Thinking that it contains the money that will finally give them the escape route they've been seeking, they take it, but find it is filled with pure cocaine. Suddenly they have choices. Selling the drugs would solve their immediate problems, but it would also contribute to the destruction of their community, and make them an integral part of everything that's wrong in Babylon.Review:
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.
