If I Grow Up by Todd Strasser

If I Grow Up by Todd Strasser
Gateway Nominee 240 pages

Very good book about growing up impoverished and hungry among those who have chosen to take the gang life. DeShawn's character is a very realistic one...he doesn't aspire to be a gang member so that he can have the money, the ride, the car, but he also doesn't think he will make it big one day. The writing is excellent for a Young Adult audience, and I could easily recommend this to any age.
