A nice addition to any library.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-02-10) Good Permalink

     This book contains a lot of violence and it is written in slang. (maybe inner city slang, I'm not sure). It gives a very grim picture of the juvenile detention life. At the end the main character is home and glad to be there. Not an easy read.
