The anticipated return to Tyrell's story, now in paperback!

Tyrell's got a lot going on. His father just got out of jail. His little brother is stuck in foster care. The dealers he's living with are taking bigger and bigger risks. And girls -- they only seem to be adding to his problems. Everybody wants something from Tyrell. His father wants him to go back to being a child. His little brother wants his help. The guys he's staying with are pushing him to start dealing. And the girls he's talking to want his time, his money, his attention, and his love.Tyrell's got too much pressure, too many choices. He's got to figure out fast what he's going to do next -- before he gets in so deep he can't get back out again.

Coe Booth is a graduate of The New School's Writing for Children MFA program, and a winner of the LA Times Book Prize for Young Adult Fiction. She is the author of Tyrell and Kendra, and was born and still lives in the Bronx.
