I loved this book. I read it a long time ago, but it was so touching and moving that I had to buy it for my kids.

A YA novel about an inner-city family struggling with a drug addicted son. The mother in the story makes you want to scream at her and shake her for how she is acting towards her children. In reading this to 7th graders, I was watching for reactions to how the mother was acting towards her 3 sons. I was surprised that I wasn't seeing the same reactions that I was feeling, but then again, I'm a MOM! There are a lot of great discussions that could be had with your child after reading this story including drugs, love and what that means in a family, and dreams. The way the characters spoke to eachother with an "inner city" language was at times difficult. But the novel read quickly and there was enough happening to keep you turning the pages. Unfortunately this doesn't end on a happy note, but still a good lesson to be read.

I read this book in middle school and have been looking for it for a very long time.  I have always loved to read but this book opened something special inside of me that caused me to be addicted to books.  Emotions run a full range from laughing to crying and everything in between.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone from 7-8 to adults.  Thank you Barnes & Noble for having this book available!!!!!

I read this book in Jr.High and it has been one of the most real books that can suck you into the story because we all know about family or friends sacrificing for the those they love to grow. Beautiful story that will bring out your emotions.
