Inhaltsangabe: Fourteen-year-old Rusty-James runs one of the meanest gangs in his neighbourhood, his reputation safe mainly because his brother is the widely-feared Motorcycle Boy. But while his brother is now a loner who shuns gangs and fighting, Rusty-James is desperate to belong.
In the violent ganglands of urban America, Rusty-James at 14 has one burning ambition: to be like his fearless brother the Motorcycle Boy. But the Motorcycle Boy is through with gangs: ?It wasn?t anything like you think it was. It was just a bunch of punks killing each other, like rumble fish, those Siamese fighting fish who?d kill each other if they could?.
But Rusty-James has to defend his own reputation for toughness and his blind desire leads in the end to an explosive and tragic climax.

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
