Many have called it “Realistic and touching.” The story begins with an account of several lively, spirited teens who are struggling to avoid the pitfalls of ghetto life. With a keen focus on Roxie, the reader is led into the trenches of North Philadelphia, where he can feel her anguish and touch the roots of her pain. The cool, witty, shoot-from-the-hip bunch walk very close to danger nearly every day. As the reader holds his breath and prays that they all don’t get sucked into the abyss of despair that eagerly awaits them, he will never forget the time that he was able to “hang with” the “Original Boys and Girls in the Hood.”
