    This was a great book once you get past the strange writing style.
  • Amazing

    By Johnyyyboiiii
    This is the single greatest book I have read in my life. The suspense kills you and makes you want to keep reading. It tells much about what it's like to grow up in the projects of Harlem and what it's like to be in prison and how some people just don't belong there. This is a must read!
  • Sorry but I hated it
