About this title:
Synopsis:
Fourteen-year-old Rusty-James runs one of the meanest gangs in his neighbourhood, his reputation safe mainly because his brother is the widely-feared Motorcycle Boy. But while his brother is now a loner who shuns gangs and fighting, Rusty-James is desperate to belong.

From the Publisher:
Rusty-James is the top tough guy among junior high kids, but what he wants most of all is to be just like his older brother, the Motorcycle Boy, the toughest, most respected streetfighter.

"Stylistically superb... this packs a punch that will leave readers of any age reeling."--School Library Journal.

From the Inside Flap:
Rusty-James is the top tough guy among junior high kids, but what he wants most of all is to be just like his older brother, the Motorcycle Boy, the toughest, most respected streetfighter.
