    This is a fiction book set in Memphis Tennessee in the 1990’s The story is about 26 year old Louvious Johnson who is wrongly imprisoned for murder He comes from a black American family who live in a poverty stricken neighbourhood known as “the hood” amidst the struggles of gang land crimes drugs and alcohol This is a story of incredible courage about how a young man from a tragic background is able to completely transform his life for the betterI was blown away by the storytelling The voice is strong has attitude is right on and humorous without trying to be I could almost hear Cynthia reading her own story out loud as I was reading it The scenes of violence the descriptions of life in prison and the hardship people suffer were incredibly vivid I thought Cynthia wrote with a masterful confidence She also writes fabulous dialogueThere is so much emotion on this book I have just picked out one uotation that was of interest to me I hadn’t realised the anger that I guess many prisoners feel “Rage is what I feel most of the time I’m mad at Momma because she was irresponsible and didn’t take care of us I’m angry at my Pops because he was a deadbeat I’m angry at them fools that killed my brother Tae because they was supposed to be his partners I’m angry at uita because she influenced me to do the wrong thing ”The characters are very strong in this book Momma features prominently in the story and here is a description of her that is a great example of Cynthias' powers of description “Momma came to the school that morning just before lunch time Tat turned out to be one of the most embarrassing days in my life Momma showed up with some pink wrinkled up pajamas and some dirty runned over bunny rabbit house shoes Her latest wig one of many wigs that Momma wore was twisted to the side She had a 40 ounce of Suds Momma only drank Blue Label in her hand She was there to see Ms Saunders because I called her a bitch Instead of Momma telling me not to call my teacher names she walked over to me in front of the whole class and said “Stop cussing that bitch out before I knock the shit out of you” To make matters worse Momma set the beer down on Ms Saunders’ desk took of her filthy house shoe and hit me dead in the mouth Ten she said “Yo black ass is gon’ get some when you get home” The protagonist is Lou who as the reader I developed strong feels for very early on His plight is clear and he is a good man Strong consistent thoughtful and sincere he dreams of a better life for himself and his girl“I am stripped down to my underwear I’m cold I’m sore and don’t feel nothin’ I’m not angry I ain’t scared and I’m not depressed—I feel absolutely nothing The silence is different though I don’t believe I’ve ever experienced this type of solitude I try to recollect when I have ever been alone with no noise I realize for the first time that I really don’t like to be by myself Why have I never been alone with me? Am I that bad? Do I like me? I hate myself I never ever knew that about me I need to get out of here I bang on the door screaming for someone to let me out”As the story unravelled this book very uickly drew me in Although it is inherently a sad tale there is a lot of good here too and some of the writing is actually humorous I really wanted to know what happened and felt sad when I turned the last pageI felt sad for people who have to suffer the miscarriages of justice I loved the twist in the story and Lou’s personal achievement in turning his life aroundWould you recommend this book? – Yes This book is a different sort of book It is a crime story a psychological story and a story of hopes and dreams I thought it was extremely well written

    This is a very different kind of novel I thought it was of a biography until the very end It is a very masterful tale of a family who live in the hood The whole family loves to fight and won't take anything off of anyone Not surprising that one of the boys is killed in a drive by shooting and another winds up in prison This story is well developed I love the discussion uestions in the back of the book 10 uestions for each chapter I won a copy of this novel on Goodreads

    I rate my book five starts good for discussion group for at risk young people The book covers problems that face the young each and every day Read with an open heart and mind and be ready to change attitudes and behaviors Great tool in a therapeutic setting or spiritual youth group The novel is relevant with short chapters and discussions uestions after each chapter Excellent on the edge of your seat book
