Summary
"In this riveting teen novel [set in 2001], Race Paloma's world violently turns upside-down after his older brother, Vince, is murdered in a drive-by. Without Vince's strong leadership, their once-powerful, hood-ruling pack unravels at the speed of light. The Deuce Dragons threaten takeover in their Cincinnati Over-The-Rhine hood. As life closes in, Race has nowhere to turn. Vince's tight homie and joint-leader of their pack, Wynn, is sent off to juvie; the Deuce Dragons pressure Race to be jumped in; his mother drowns her grief over Vince's death in extended drunken bouts; then Race is caught shoplifting and comes face-to-face with the slammer. Could his world get any worse? Vince used to say: "My entire life, every freaking part of it, has been brought to you by the color drab. And I do mean the drabbiest." Race's new employer, a blind piano tuner named Stan, says: "...The truth of the matter is, each man colors his own world." Who's right? What voice will Race listen to?"--adapted from amazon.com
