"One of those tales that ties you up, turns you inside-out, wrings you like a wet cloth." --Jason Reynolds, New York Times bestselling author of Long Way Down

American Street meets Long Way Down in this searing and gritty debut novel that takes an unflinching look at the harsh realities of gang life in Jamaica and how far a teen is willing to go for family.

Things can change in a second:

The second Frankie Green gets that scholarship letter, he has his ticket out of Jamaica.

The second his longtime crush, Leah, asks him on a date, he's in trouble.

The second his father gets shot, suddenly nothing else matters.

And the second Frankie joins his uncle's gang in exchange for paying for his father's medical bills, there's no going back...or is there?

As Frankie does things he never thought he'd be capable of, he's forced to confront the truth of the family and future he was born into--and the ones he wants to build for himself.
