    An astonishing new voice in teen literature, writing what is sure to be one of the most talked-about debuts of the year.

    Tyrell is a young African-American teen who can't get a break. He's living (for now) with his spaced-out mother and little brother in a homeless shelter. His father's in jail. His girlfriend supports him, but he doesn't feel good enough for her -- and seems to be always on the verge of doing the wrong thing around her. There's another girl at the homeless shelter who is also after him, although the desires there are complicated. Tyrell feels he needs to score some money to make things better. Will he end up following in his father's footsteps?

    • Read with interest by an XBOX 360 addict teenager!

      My 16 yr old son loved this book. He's addicted to gaming, and it's not always easy to get him to read, but this book grabbed his attention and he even requested another book in the series. He does tend to like "darker" stories with some angst and difficulty in the lives of the characters, so he did relate well to this story. I always appreciate the opportunity to open his eyes to the lives of kids that have a different reality than he does, and this book provided that for him. He was 15 when he read this. He also loved "The Book Thief", so if your child liked that book, he/she might also enjoy "Tyrell". He did say there was a happy ending, though!
