Summary
"East is only fifteen, but he's already a seasoned gang member, hardened and savvy from a youth spent on the streets of South Central Los Angeles. So when the cops bust a stash house and arrest his uncle, East feels ready to step up and do a man's job -- even if it means finding and killing a key witness." -- From dust jacket
Summary
East, a Los Angeles gang member who works as a lookout, is only 16 when he's sent to Wisconsin as part of a group to kill a witness hiding out there. Along with three other teens (including his younger brother), he must traverse an entirely alien America, where as young black men they stand out far more than they did in L.A. Observant and cautious, East is a complex character, one who is good at what he does but not entirely hardened by his life. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
