Abstract:

In 1970s northern California, fifteen-year-old RJ Armante must fight to save himself and his disabled brother from the Blackjacks gang, and free his hometown, Arcangel, from its past.

1970s. RJ Armante has never known a life outside his dead-end hometown of Arcangel, CA. The Blackjacks rule as they have for generations, luring the poorest kids into their monopoly on petty crime. They've left RJ alone... until now. They want RJ to prey upon an old loner. But RJ is at his breaking point: about the gang, about the town, about Charley, his younger brother, who is disabled. About Roxanne, the girl he can't reach. About the kids in his crew who have nothing to live for. If RJ is to resist, he must fight to free Arcangel of its past. -- adapted from jacket
