Booth reminds me a lot of Walter Dean Myers. Dealing with similar inner city lives of young adults, Booth characterizes 11 year-old Jarrett as a young African-American boy struggling with school and getting enough attention from his mom who has decided to open their home to foster children. Worried about repeating the sixth grade, Jarrett now has to room with Kevon, a 12-year-old foster child. Soon, Jarrett realizes that Kevon's distance comes from a long history of sadness. Coping with Kevon's presence, Jarrett turns his attention to making horror movie trailers with his friend. A poignant look at inner city life.
