*Starred Review* Bailey O'Neil and Clay Wainwright are sworn enemies. As a district attorney in New York City, Clay sent Bailey, who is dedicated to helping teens get out of gangs, to jail for harboring a criminal. Now Clay is a conservative New York senator, and he has blocked funding for Bailey's organization. When Clay and Bailey find themselves on the same gang-violence task force, they call a truce, then discover that in spite of their differences, there is some chemistry between them. But Bailey's family and friends hate Clay. And Clay's conservative law-enforcement friends despise Bailey's methods, and his mother has someone far more suitable in mind for a daughter-in-law. Once again, Shay shines in this starkly realistic story of gang members and people involved in prevention and intervention programs. She pulls no punches when describing brutal events, and secondary characters, including Clay's environmentalist son, Bailey's overprotective brothers, and Taz, a member of the notorious Good Girls gang, are especially well developed. This powerful story will stay with readers long after they finish the book. Shelley Mosley
