Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty by G. Neri
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Intense and brutally honest, this portrayal of an inner-city kid's involvement in a gang and subsequent run from the police is based on a true story. It may be a book every teen needs to read: kids in the suburbs because they won't likely have experienced it themselves, and kids in the city because they should see the real-life results of getting involved in a gang.
